  • Quarterback Josh Mc Cown announced on Monday that he's retiring after 17 years in the NFL

With all that being said, we look back at the three best games he had during his short, but respected tenure with the Browns. The Jets wanted him back because of his unselfish attitude and willingness to help young quarterbacks.

During his National Football League career, which sandwiched a season in the CFL, McCown passed for 17,707 yards, 98 touchdowns, and 82 interceptions playing for 10 teams. His body feels fresh - he appeared in only four games last season - but he chose to move on to the next chapter, which could include coaching or television. "It's been one heck of a journey", he wrote. He played for 10 different teams, including the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Panthers, Bears, Buccaneers, Browns and Jets. I don't shy away from the journeyman label. "I'll take it", McCown wrote in his Tribune column. He also spent time with the Dolphins and 49ers, but did not play in a game for either. McCown, an unrestricted free agent, made the Jets aware of his situation, and NY signed Trevor Siemian to serve as the backup to Darnold this season. "I have been fortunate to play professionally for 17 years and be around so many unbelievable players, coaches and organizations", said McCown. That was his role with the Jets; he also was heavily involved in the mentoring Darnold. McCown spent the past few months contemplating his future, but let the Jets know during free agency that he needed more time; that led to the signing of Trevor Siemian, who filled McCown's role as the backup quarterback. Jets safety Jamal Adams often jokingly referred to McCown on social media as "Uncle Josh", a nickname that quickly spread.

"At the end of the day, no matter what team I was on, I tried to serve it to the best of my ability, and I tried to influence my team in a positive manner", McCown wrote. "I hope I did that", he said. McCown appeared in eight games (with five starts) and ended the year completing 67 percent of his passes for 1,829 yards with 13 touchdowns and just one interception.
