Josh McCown re-signs with Jets

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo is reporting the New York Jets have re-signed QB Josh McCown to a one-year deal worth $10 million.

Fantasy Impact

Although the Jets are attempting to sign Teddy Bridgewater, there is no guarantee they ultimately get him. Reports suggest that Bridgewater has other options. However, even if the Jets do land Bridgewater, he is coming off of a severe knee injury and remains a question mark from that standpoint. Re-signing McCown is a no-brainer. Not only is he an efficient quarterback when healthy, but he's also like a having coach on the field, which could help a young and rebuilding Jets team tremendously. Expect McCown to compete for the starting job with whomever the Jets bring in.

Josh McCown plans on playing in '18

Josh McCown announced he plans on playing in 2018 and enjoys playing for Todd Bowles and the Jets organization, this after every decision-maker with the team has expressed their desire to see the 39-year old McCown return.

Fantasy Impact

This is a tremendous opportunity for the Jets, to use a seasoned vet like McCown to serve as a bridge and a mentor to a young quarterback from the draft unless the team decides to go the free agency route.

Josh McCown placed on IR

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the New York Jets have placed QB Josh McCown (hand) on the injured reserve list Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

After being diagnosed with a broken hand following Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Broncos, McCown was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list Tuesday. Easily coming off of a career year at the ripe age of 38 -- in 13 games, he threw for career highs in yards passing (2,926), touchdowns (18) and completion percentage (67.3) while tossing nine interceptions -- McCown likely will look to extend his career in 2018. He's a free agent this offseason.
