Jets bringing back QB Josh McCown on 1-year deal

Jets bringing back QB Josh McCown on 1-year deal

Wednesday is the first day National Football League teams can sign players. The Minnesota Vikings needed a quarterback, had the money and featured by far the best roster of the teams vying for his services. Both players are on one-year deals, so they still haven't found their long-term solution at quarterback.

Coming off the breaking news that the Minnesota Vikings will be signing free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, the market for other passers like Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater started to heat up. The deal is for 1-year at $10 million and creates more questions than answers. McCown battled against Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty during the 2017 preseason to win the starting quarterback position.

The Jets will likely look to select another quarterback during next month's NFL Draft.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets. The signing created a bit of a stir on social media due to some poor decisions in Crowell's past, but from a pure football standpoint, the move makes sense. Spending the last two years as the main cornerback with the Los Angeles Rams, Johnson plans to take his talents to NY.

Missouri was announced the No. 8 seed and will take on Florida State in their first tournament game in Nashville Friday. The game will tip off after the Xavier vs. play-in victor game, which begins at 6:20 p.m.

McCown agreed on a one-year contract to keep him in NY, which will reportedly pay McCown $10million for the 2018 season. McCown and the Jets have expressed a desire to get back together as a backup plan.

Next, the Jets announced that they plan to acquire cornerback Trumaine Johnson. NFL Network insider Ian Rapaport is reporting that the deal is worth approximately $28 million per year.

Williamson turned down a four-year, $12m deal to remain with the Titans.

The 28-year-old was widely viewed as the top cornerback available in free agency and joins a well-stocked secondary with the Jets, who are coached by former National Football League safety Todd Bowles.
