Has Rex Ryan beaten the Jets to the punch? It appears that the Buffalo Bills are negotiating to sign veteran free agent Josh McCown to address their long-standing needs at quarterback.
“I think I would say, simply, every quarterback out there we’d have an interest in,” Maccagnan said at the NFL scouting combine on Wednesday.
While Jets fans are debating the merits of Michael Vick and a potential reunion with Darrelle Revis, general manager John Idzik is quietly addressing the team’s biggest need.
As far as the fans and many in the media go, it is almost a foregone conclusion that Mark Sanchez will not return to the Jets for a sixth season. And yet it may not be that simple. Nor, frankly, should it be.
For all those who believe the Jets need a legitimate veteran quarterback to push incumbent Geno Smith in training camp, there might be a solution in the works. Michael Vick, anyone?
According to a report, general manager John Idzik is interested in free-agent-to-be Josh McCown, who was excellent for the Bears after Jay Cutler went down with an injury.
