The Cleveland Browns signed former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chicago Bears quarterback Josh McCown.
The 35-year-old also visited the Buffalo Bills and met with the Bears and New York Jets.
He went 1-10 as a starter last year in Tampa Bay.
“Josh is your consummate professional,” Browns general manager Ray Farmer said. “He’s known to be a great guy in the locker room and will be great for the quarterback room. He knows how to get an entire offense on the same page and get a team to rally behind him. He has been exposed to a lot of different types of offenses and we think still has the drive and skill set to be a successful quarterback in this league. We are excited to get him and believe he will help continue to move us in the right direction and help us build the type of team that will bring winning football to Cleveland.”
“I just want to serve our team and help everybody in that locker room, do my best to help everybody in the locker room be better at their job and they're going to help me, too," McCown said. "It's a two-way street. In my room, I want to be able to help those young guys and pass along my knowledge and experiences I've had and help them grow.”
