Josh McCown likely did not see this coming, but I’m sure he’s happy that he gets to possibly pull in one final check from the National Football League.
Back in June, Josh McCown announced he had retired after 16 NFL seasons with 10 NFL teams. You can now add an 11th team.
With injuries to multiple quarterbacks, the Philadelphia Eagles reached out to the veteran QB and lured him out of retirement to back up Carson Wentz.
It should be noted that McCown turned 40 in July and was all set to start a broadcasting career with ESPN.
NFL Network is reporting that McCown will sign for a base salary of $2 million fully guaranteed.
McCown has started 43 games over the past six seasons for the Chicago Bears, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets.
