Josh McCown to visit Jets this weekend, source says

Posted March 20, 2017

The Jets' great quarterback search of 2017 continues.

According to multiple reports out of New York City, Josh McCown could soon be a New York Jet.

Well, the Jets have shown some interest in former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

The addition of Mrs. McCown could be seen as a strong indication the Browns free-agent quarterback is interested in joining the Jets, a team with plenty of inexperience in its quarterback room. They've touched base with several veteran options.

He was spotted, along with Jets' head coach Todd Bowles and various team executives, at a upscale steakhouse located in Midtown Manhattan Saturday night.

The quarterback-needy Jets have just the inexperienced Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg on their roster and McCown would provide a veteran presence who could potentially start and be a mentor to the youngsters.

McCown was with the Browns the past two years. McCown has also drawn interest from the Cowboys. He is 18-42 in his career as a starter and 2-20 over the last three years.
