Now, the 41-year-old will serve as the backup for Deshaun Watson. This is McCown’s 10th NFL team in his career if he takes a snap.
Watson is currently backed up by AJ McCarron. The Texans — who fired Bill O’Brien and replaced him with Romeo Crennel in October — are currently 1-6.
This season, Watson has appeared in seven games, including seven starts. He has gone 1-6 on the season. Watson has gone 166 of 239 for 2,095 yards. He has thrown 15 touchdown passes and five interceptions.
McCarron has not played in a game for the Texans in 2020. He last played for the Texans in 2019 when he appeared in one game, a loss.
The 30-year-old went 21 of 37 for 225 yards. He also threw an interception in the loss.
McCown was on the Eagles practice squad in case Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, or Jalen Hurts tested positive for the coronavirus. Neither quarterback tested positive for the infectious virus.
The Jacksonville, Texas native appeared in three games with the Eagles in 2019. He went 3 of 5 for 24 yards.
He said that he was going to retire at the end of the season. McCown instead put off retirement to be a backup for the Eagles, making $12,000 a week as a practice squad player.
He attended Zoom meetings with the Eagles and offered mentorship to Carson Wentz.
The journeyman has appeared in 102 NFL games, including 76 starts. He has gone 23-53 as a starter.
McCown has gone 1,584 for 2,633 for 17,731 yards. He has torn 98 touchdown receptions and 82 interceptions.
He has played for the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Eagles, Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Eagles, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. McCown spent four of his long career with the Cardinals from 2002 through 2005.
