Longtime veteran quarterback Josh McCown is calling it a career.
After joining 10 NFL teams within 17 years (including one season in the United Football League), McCown penned a retirement proposal for The Players’ Tribune, placing a near his winding career.
“I guess it just goes to show you don’t always have to choose your own route,” McCown wrote. “But looking back, I’m proud of my career has gone. I really don’t shy away from the journeyman tag. I embrace it, full force.
“Since it’s been one heck of a journey.
“And today, strange as it feels to say, following 17 years… that travel is coming to an end.
“Today I’m officially retiring.”
McCown was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft. McCown’s travel started. He joined the Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins (offseason), Carolina Panthers, Hartford Colonials (UFL), San Francisco 49ers (offseason), Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns, and, finally, the New York Jets for the past two years.
McCown started 76 games over the span of his career, completed 60.2 percent of his passes and threw 98 touchdowns to 82 interceptions.
Called a gritty player who showed flashes but not stayed healthy enough for a long-term response at any of his ceases, McCown will be recalled as the QB tutor. His final season spent with the Jets as Sam Darnold’s mentor epitomized the best of McCown’s career.
In his retirement letter, McCown suggesed coaching or a broadcast profession could be in his future. After his retirement Monday, ESPN announced that McCown will be joining the network.
It would not be a jolt to see return to the sideline as a coach at some point.
