The Cleveland Browns, who have been looking for stability and consistent production from the quarterback position since pretty much the start of the Reagan Administration, have signed their latest hope under center: Josh McCown. The two sides agreed to terms on a three-year contract Friday. There's no word yet on how much McCown will be getting paid.
McCown, who will turn 36 years old in July, resurrected his NFL career with a superb one-year stint as the injury replacement for Chicago's Jay Cutler in 2013. He parlayed that success into a two-year, $10 million contract with the Buccaneers. But that partnership lasted only one disastrous season in which the Bucs ended up with the worst record in the NFL and McCown threw just 11 touchdowns and committed 18 turnovers in 11 games. He also completed just 56.3 percent of his passes. Tampa Bay released McCown earlier this month.
