Josh McCown Won’t Come CheapMarch 8th, 2014
Joe looks at the fat cash retread quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Chad Henne just locked down in free agency as backups/possible starters/potential rookie mentors and it’s clear Josh McCown will cost the Bucs a pile of money. That assumes the Bucs hotly pursue McCown this afternoon when the free-agency tampering window opens at noon.
McCown has got to be considered as good as those guys.
Per CBS Sports, Cassel and Henne will gobble up plenty of cash.
Instead of becoming a free agent though, Cassel decided to re-sign with Minnesota where he’ll make an average of $5 million per season over the next two years. Cassel’s deal is similar to the two-year, $8 million deal Chad Henne signed in Jacksonville on Friday.
Jiminy Christmas! Joe would take Mike Glennon over Henne.
If McCown is worth at the least the $4 million Henne commanded, then imagine what Michael Vick would demand? Oh, well. Joe doesn’t like Vick or McCown as starters, or Glennon for that matter, but Joe would be pleased to have McCown in Tampa competing in 2014 and working with first-round rookie QB like a Johnny Football or Teddy Bridgewater.
Yes, it’s a beautiful Saturday and Joe is allowed to dream.
