After playing for 17 years in the NFL, quarterback Josh McCown has reportedly announced his retirement from the league.
Since being drafted in the third round by the Arizona Cardinals in 2002, McCown will leave behind an NFL career that saw him play for 10 different teams in the league.
He last spent two seasons playing for the Jets where he started in 16 total games. And as the report mentions, McCown spent 2018 mentoring quarterback Sam Darnold in his rookie year.
Over the span of McCown’s entire career, he participated in 99 total games and threw for a total of 17,707 yards and 98 touchdowns.
McCown was very much admired for his mature presence in the locker room and as a team leader.
Set to turn 40 years old on July 4, McCown is now ready to start a new chapter in his life. We wish him the very best at whatever adventures await him.
