Josh McCown wants to be a starter

Quarterback Josh McCown is hoping to build on the success he had had in 2013.

After throwing for 1,829 yards, 18 touchdowns and just one interception in relief duty with the Chicago Bears, McCown has his sights set on becoming a starting quarterback at the age of 34. Obviously, that won't happen in Chicago, a place where he excelled a season ago.

“To leave Chicago it will be a situation where I’m looking to compete to start, or to start, and to grow more as a player,” McCown said on ESPN radio show Mike & Mike in the Morning. “The only way you can do that as a player is on the field. So that will definitely be something that we’re looking at.”

McCown will officially become a free agent Tuesday and said his representation has spoken with at least four interested teams already.
