Josh McCown is heading for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the latest free agency move to be announced.
As revealed by his agent, Mike McCartney, the former Chicago Bears quarterback has agreed a deal with the Bucs:
"Excited for @joshMCCown12 agreeing to a 2 year deal with the @TBBuccaneers," he wrote Wednesday afternoon.
McCown saw his opportunities limited at Soldier Field but did perform well when required to fill in for Jay Cutler for a portion of last season.
In his eight appearances for the Bears last season, five of them starts, McCown had a 109 passer rating.
Approaching 35 years of age the 11 year veteran is hardly a long term solution for the Tampa franchise but he certainly has the experience and a two year deal makes sense.
With the two year deal revealed it looks like McCown was not content with a back up role in Chicago and is set to challenge for a starting job in 2014.
The deal is reportedly worth $10 over the two years.
