CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Browns have signed a three-year deal with veteran quarterback Josh McCown, according to a press release from the team.
McCown, 35, started last season with Tampa Bay and finished 1-10 before he was released. He’s also played for the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Panthers, Bears and Buccaneers.
“Josh is your consummate professional,” Farmer said in the release. “He’s known to be a great guy in the locker room and will be great for the quarterback room. He knows how to get an entire offense on the same page and get a team to rally behind him. He has been exposed to a lot of different types of offenses and we think still has the drive and skill set to be a successful quarterback in this league.”
“I just want to serve our team and help everybody in that locker room, do my best to help everybody in the locker room be better at their job and they’re going to help me, too. It’s a two-way street,” McCown said in the release. “I’m just excited about coming in and being a part of a team.
The Browns currently have Brian Hoyer, who is heading for free agency and Johnny Manziel who is currently in rehab.
