According to the New York Daily News, the jets are expected to show interest in Bears back up quarterback Josh McCown when free agency begins.
The Daily News has learned that the Jets are eying Bears quarterback Josh McCown in free agency to provide a viable alternative in case Smith regresses. McCown, coming off an impressive season that included five starts in relief of an injured Jay Cutler, is expected to draw a fair amount of interest when free agency begins on March 11. The Jets, who are expected to release Mark Sanchez next month, believe McCown would be a quality backup.
If the Jets aren’t confident in Geno Smith, maybe they should think about drafting another quarterback.
