Lovie Smith and the new-look Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to overhaul the roster, with the latest addition coming to the offensive side of the ball.
According to multiple reports, free agent quarterback Josh McCown has reached an agreement on a two-year, $10 million contract with the Buccaneers. The deal has a maximum value of $15 million.
A ten-year veteran journeyman, Tampa Bay will mark McCown’s sixth franchise since joining the league as a third-round pick out of Sam Houston State in 2002. In eight appearances with the Chicago Bears last season, McCown posted a QB rating of 109.0 with 13 touchdown passes and only one interception. In addition, the 34-year-old went 3-2 as a starter in place of the injured Jay Cutler.
The big question people have asked regarding McCown is whether or not his success in Chicago was a byproduct of playing in head coach Marc Trestman’s system.
Well, it looks like Tampa Bay will find out come September.
