The Jets are still looking for a veteran signal caller and are currently hosting former Browns QB Josh McCown.

Earlier in free agency it was reported that the Jets had interest in Josh McCown, well they now have substantial interest in the veteran. Ian Rapoport confirmed that the team is currently hosting the 37 year old.

It's obvious the Jets are looking for that stopgap QB and with the options dwindling by the day, we better start preparing for a move like Josh McCown.

You have to imagine that as things stand, coming to the Jets is appealing for Josh, with only Petty and Hackenberg on the roster, he has a great opportunity to start in 2017.

He spent last year with the Cleveland Browns throwing for 1,100 yards and tossing 6 TD's to 6 INT's. Having been in the league for 14 years, he would certainly bring experience to a young unit.
