Josh McCown coming out of retirement to play for Philly
17 August, 2019, 21:56
Josh McCown, who announced his retirement this summer to spend more time with his family, is returning to play his 17th National Football League season with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Saturday.
The 40-year-old McCown had retired in the offseason after two years with the Jets and was hired as an analyst at ESPN, but ultimately chose to come back as the Eagles became desperate in their need for a reliable backup quarterback behind Carson Wentz.
However, the journeyman quarterback couldn't turn down the opportunity to strap on a helmet again when the Eagles called; putting off his broadcasting career for another year.
McCown is signing a one-year deal with a $2 million base salary, which is fully guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Eagles had planned to enter this season with Nate Sudfeld as Wentz's primary backup, but Sudfeld broke his wrist in the preseason opener against the Titans and is expected to miss the start of the regular season.
The group of active Philadelphia quarterbacks now includes rookie Clayton Thorson, McCown and starter Carson Wentz. He completed 54.5% of his passes for 539 yards.
Besides the Jets, the veteran quarterback has spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears. It's worth noting that the Eagles have had to deploy their backup quarterback twice in the last two years, both times with spectacular results.
The 40-year-old McCown had had a long career, but has never made the playoffs.
