Josh McCown Signs 1-Year Deal With the Philadelphia Eagles

Josh McCown retired earlier this offseason, but has decided to come back to football to play for the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year deal. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.

The 40-year-old quarterback will be playing his 17th season in the NFL this year for the Eagles. He has passed for 17,707 yards, 98 touchdowns and 82 interceptions on 60.2 percent completion. Philadelphia will be the ninth team that McCown has played for in his career.

Philadelphia was in the market for a backup quarterback for a variety of reasons. Nick Foles signed a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason. New backup Nate Sudfeld broke his wrist and will be out at least six weeks. Cody Kessler suffered a concussion, which means Clayton Thorson was the only healthy quarterback behind Carson Wentz before McCown was signed.

McCown signed on to be a part of ESPN’s broadcasting team, but will now try to go back to that after this season.
