The Jets have finally made a move with their sea of cap space, and it involves a player everyone around here is familiar with. They’ve re-signed Josh McCown to a one-year deal, worth $10 million, according to reports.

Personally, I don’t understand the move on a few levels. First off, $10 million is too much for a player who is approaching 40 years old, has never won more than six games in a season over a 16-year career, and doesn’t figure to be the surefire starting quarterback. Though it probably won’t end up hurting their cap situation much at all considering their inactivity this year and the fact that it is only a one-year deal, it still just doesn’t strike me as a great value regardless of what his role is.

We will see how the dominoes fall surrounding Teddy Bridgewater, but if the Jets are bringing in both, that makes this move even more puzzling. Are they still drafting a quarterback? If not, where is the future at the position? Could they really think McCown and Bridgewater is a sound route to the future at QB? If they are drafting a quarterback, what was the point of bringing in both McCown and Bridgewater?

Anyway, all that is certain for now is that Josh McCown is going to be back with the Jets this year. Stay tuned, as it seems like the quarterback circus is coming to Florham Park yet again.
