    Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Jonathan Casillas said QB Josh McCown reminds him of New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who Casillas played with when he was with the Saints from 2009 to 2012. 'It's a strong comparison, but he reminds me of Drew (Brees), not just the way he throws the ball, but his approach to the game. The first one in, the last one out, he's always around. He's very communicable, very personable. And you can tell he's a born leader,' Casillas said.

    Huddle Up: McCown certainly put up Brees-like numbers (1,829 yards, 13 TDs, 1 INT) while starting 5 games and playing in parts of 3 others last season in Chicago, but it remains to be seen if McCown will be given the same sort of free rein if he wins the Bucs' starting job under defensive-minded coach Lovie Smith.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown has been praised for his leadership skills by Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald and McCown were teammates in 2003-04.

    Huddle Up: Fitz's word carries a lot of weight around the league, but the only opinion that matters right now is that of new Bucs' head coach Lovie Smith, who will choose from the veteran McCown or second-year Mike Glennon as the team's starter.

  • Posted: 5/13/2014 11:54pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown likes the selection of WR Mike Evans in the 2014 draft. McCown said the similarities between Evans and WR Vincent Jackson and Chicago Bears WRs Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery is good.

    Huddle Up: McCown, who will turn 35 on the Fourth of July, certainly is living right late in his NFL career, going from Marshall & Jeffery in Chicago to projected starter in Tampa with the Jackson-Evans duo to throw to. Make sure your fantasy draft board reflects McCown's good fortune.

    Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with QB Josh McCown on a two-year deal worth $10 million. McCown will earn $4.75 million in 2014 and $5.25 million in 2015, according to sources. He can make an extra $5 million in incentives; $1 million each for playing time and another $3 million for reaching the playoffs.

    Huddle Up: McCown will at minimum compete with Mike Glennon for the starting gig in Tampa Bay, and given Lovie Smith's luke-warm endorsement of Glennon you should consider McCown the favorite. Whether that translates into the same kind of fantasy success he had in Marc Trestman's offense in Chicago, however, is another matter entirely.

    The New York Jets are scheduled to meet with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Bears).

    Huddle Up: McCown, who threw for 1,829 yards, 13 TDs and only 1 interception while filling in for the injured Jay Cutler last season, also reportedly will meet with the Texans and Bucs and would have a good shot to start for all 3 teams. Stay tuned to see what develops.

  • Posted: 3/10/2014 2:13pm ET

    The Houston Texans are interested in free-agent QB Josh McCown (Bears).

    Huddle Up: Doesn't sound like Matt Schaub is coming back to Houston, so the Texans will want a veteran quarterback in place even if they spend an early pick on a signal caller. McCown will be a popular option, though he may have other opportunities with a brighter long-term future as a starter.

  • Posted: 3/3/2014 1:18am ET

    Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Josh McCown said he is willing to test the free-agent market this offseason because of the contract he could get from another team.

    Huddle Up: It's now-or-never time for the soon-to-be 35-year-old QB, who made 5 starts, had 3 300-year games and a 13-1 TD-to-interception ratio in place of the injured Jay Cutler last season.

  • Posted: 2/23/2014 7:43pm ET

    The New York Jets have interest in Chicago Bears impending free agent QB Josh McCown should he hit free agency. The Jets are looking for a backup in case QB Geno Smith regresses.

    Huddle Up: The Jets -- well at least coach Rex Ryan -- has expressed interest in having Mark Sanchez return, but with appearing to be a longshot, look for the team to pursue McCown or another veteran backup.

  • Posted: 2/15/2014 8:47pm ET

    The Oakland Raiders could express interest in Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Josh McCown this offseason, because they are looking for a shorter-term solution from a veteran starting quarterback.

    Huddle Up: With Jay Cutler signed long-term in Chicago, McCown is likely to seek a starting gig elsewhere--and Oakland certainly has an opening. McCown was a fantasy contributor when throwing to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery; the Raiders receivers are a step down, but the cupboard is far from bare with Denarius Moore, Rod Streater and Andre Holmes all potential stars.

    Chicago Bears QB Josh McCown threw a career-high four touchdown passes in the Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 9. He is now 2-0 on Monday Night Football this season, and he has 11 touchdowns and only one interception in 5 starts in place of the injured QB Jay Cutler.

    Huddle Up: McCown also added a TD and 16 yards rushing, providing matchup-changing points for those fantasy owners who rolled with him Monday night. In addition to his sterling 11-1 TD-to-interception ratio, McCown is 3-2 with a 108.2 QB rating as the Bears' starter. Cutler likely will regain his starting job when healthy -- possibly in Week 15 -- but McCown definitely hasn't made it an easy decision by any means for coach Marc Trestman.

  • Posted: 11/5/2013 12:28am ET

    Chicago Bears backup QB Josh McCown completed 22-of-41 passes for 272 yards, 2 TDs and no interceptions, while also rushing once for 20 yards Monday, Nov. 4 in a 27-20 win over the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: McCown played better than even many optimistic Bears' fans expected, connecting with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery on TD tosses, failing to turn the ball over and helping end the Bears' 6-game losing streak to the Packers. According to pre-game reports, starter Jay Cutler (groin) could return in Week 10, but given McCown's performance, the Bears aren't going to rush Cutler back until he's completely ready.
