Twitter reacts to Jets' signing of journeyman QB Josh McCown

Quarterback Geno Smith has agreed to terms with the New York Giants

The New York Jets signed journeyman quarterback Josh McCown to a one-year contract on Monday.

The Jets have newbies Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg on their roster at quarterback and have been reported to have been in the market for a seasoned veteran to help mentor the duo along.

McCown has made several stops during his National Football League career, playing for teams like the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and now the Jets.

And on the same day former Jets starter-turned-discarded backup Geno Smith signed a one-year, $2 million with the crosstown rival Giants, the Jets were welcoming McCown to the organization. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith - two of the quarterbacks who started in NY last season - are on the free-agent market. He has a career completion percentage of 59.1, throwing for 14,242 yards, 79 touchdowns, and 69 interceptions.

Of course, it would certainly be interesting to see the Jets eschew other needs to take a quarterback. Last month at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Jets general manager said "all options are on the table" when it comes to finding a quarterback.

But Barack Obama spent all eight years of his presidency prioritizing and championing the radical environmental cause. At that point it will connect to an existing pipeline network that will transport oil to the Gulf of Mexico region.

McCown affords NY the ability to continue to evaluate Petty and Hackenberg - and possibly another quarterback if they draft one with the No. 6 overall pick - and knowing it has an experienced player at the position if the youngsters aren't ready to play.

Josh McCown signed a one-year deal with the Jets.

The well-traveled McCown has also spent time with Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, Carolina, San Francisco, Chicago and Tampa Bay - all primarily as a backup.

McCown won't be the only visitor to the Jets' facility. In his career, McCown is 18-42 with his best win-loss record coming with the Chicago Bears from 2011-2013. They'll need to lean on the veteran, who already has an ally in the coaching room, new quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates.
