Jets to keep QB McCown, also eye Bridgewater
5:05 PM ET
After missing out on Kirk Cousins, the
Free agent Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, $84 million deal with the Vikings on Thursday, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Cousins, 29, has been one of the NFL’s most productive quarterbacks since becoming the Redskins’ starter three years ago.
McCown’s season ended prematurely after suffering a fractured left (non-throwing) hand, which required surgery, in a Week 14 loss to the Denver Broncos. After the game, he choked up at his news conference, knowing his season probably was over. He also hinted to teammates that he might retire, but he came out publicly in January to say he intends to play at least one more season.
Despite the abbreviated campaign, McCown was voted team MVP by his Jets teammates. They went 5-8 with him in the lineup, failing to win a game after his injury.
McCown, who turns 39 on July 4, is the ultimate journeyman, having played for eight different teams since entering the league in 2002. McCown, Julius Peppers and Dwight Freeney were the only players from the 2002 draft still playing in 2017.
He is 23-50 as a starter over his career, with 17,168 passing yards, 97 touchdown passes and 78 interceptions.
