QB - FA
Luke McCown announced his retirement after 10 NFL seasons. A 2004 fourth-round draft pick out of Louisiana Tech, McCown made 10 NFL starts and finishes his career with nine touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

NFL Insider Adam Caplan is reporting free agent quarterback Luke McCown has signed with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday.
McCown, formerly of the Saints, signed with the Cowboys Friday. He'll likely compete with Kellen Moore for the role of Dak Prescott's primary backup in 2017. However, Moore, who spent his entire two-year career in Dallas, is the favorite to emerge as the team's QB2.
The New Orleans Saints have released quarterback Luke McCown on Wednesday.
McCown, who spent the past three seasons in New Orleans, was cut by the Saints Wednesday. With McCown out, newly signed Chase Daniel is expected to open the 2017 season as Drew Brees' primary backup ahead of Garrett Grayson.
Garrett Grayson, not McCown, started the second series after Drew Brees and was ineffective in the second half. He completed 18 of 26 passes for 143 yards with a TD and INT.
The TD was nice for McCown, but he overthrew a wide open WR for an easy TD and also fumbled the ball on a sack that was recovered for a defensive TD. McCown is a veteran who will bounce back and become the backup QB despite having a rough night and working as the 3rd QB in the preseason opener.
The New Orleans Saints re-signed backup QB Luke McCown to a two-year, $3 million deal with a $500k signing bonus on Thursday according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
