View Full Version : Fmr SHSU QB - On the FA Market

Former SHSU QB Josh McCown is looking for a place to land. With some nice talent around him, he could be a starter in the league. 9-10 in Arizona as a starter speaks volumes to me, especially considering how awful the Cardinals were. If they stuck with him, they could've gone to the playoffs...

From the San Fransisco Chronicle...

The Raiders' deliberate approach to free agency this time doesn't mean they're sitting pat.

Former Cardinals quarterback Josh McCown arrived in Alameda on Tuesday night for a look, further squelching rumors that the team is still negotiating with Kerry Collins.

The Cardinals re-signed quarterback Kurt Warner last month, essentially making McCown, 26, expendable and leaving him for free agency. Already, McCown has been on a cross-country tour, spending Sunday and Monday with Detroit -- which signed Jon Kitna -- then landing in New Orleans on Tuesday, only to learn the Saints had signed Drew Brees.

In four seasons in Arizona -- and playing for mostly dreadful teams -- McCown was 9-10 as a starter and passed for 4,347 yards, 19 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.

Although he might not be an ideal choice as a starting quarterback, McCown's experience far exceeds that of Raiders quarterbacks Marques Tuiasosopo and Andrew Walter, who have two NFL starts among them.

Two year deal, hoping to get more if he's productive after the first two. Signed with the Lions who obviously need QB help because of the "Harrington Situation"...
