Houston Texans Sign Josh McCown

A curious move by the Texans.

NFL: JAN 05 NFC Wild Card - Seahawks at Eagles

Aaron Wilson tweeted that Josh McCown’s agent tweeted that Josh McCown, the pride of Jacksonville (TX), is signing with your Houston Texans.

McCown, who is 41 years old, a beloved Sam Houston State Bearkat, and may have a blood relation who writes about football for a living, hasn’t suited up this season but has quite the lengthy Pro Football Reference page. Does his impending arrival mean something is afoot with AJ McCarron’s future in Houston? Or is this simply the team bringing in a savvy veteran insurance policy for Deshaun Watson in the era of COVID-19?
