Get to know new Bucs QB Josh McCown

Posted: Updated:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers add a veteran quarterback in day-two of free agency.

Josh McCown played last season for the Chicago Bears. As a backup, he got a chance to start five games last season for the Bears in place of an injured Jay Cutler. He threw 13 touchdowns and only one interception in eight games last season.

Sources said the Bucs agreed to a two-year contract worth $10 million, with a maximum value of $15 million.

New coach Lovie Smith says the 34-year-old will have a legitimate shot at the starting job, currently occupied by Mike Glennon, who is coming off a decent rookie season.
