Josh McCown sounds like a man who wants to return for another season. But will it be with the Jets?
In an appearance on NFL Network’s Total Access on Tuesday night, McCown was asked if he “100%” wants to play in 2018.
“Right now, that’s how it’s looking,” McCown said on the program.
And he’s not ruling out a reunion with Gang Green.

“I enjoyed my season there this year,” McCown said of the Jets. “More than anything just the people in the organization. It’s a special place from the ownership down. I enjoyed my time with Coach Bowles. A lot of decisions have to be made within the next few months, but I loved being there, and we’ll see how it plays out.”
When he last spoke about his plans in November, McCown — who broke his hand on Dec. 10 in Denver and missed the final three games of the season — indicated he would have to wait until he spoke with his family in the offseason before making a final decision.
Both Todd Bowles and general manager Mike Maccagnan said after the season that they would be open to bringing back McCown next season. McCown will turn 39 in July. He set career highs in passing yards (2,926), passing touchdowns (18), completion percentage (67.3) and rushing touchdowns (5) despite his injury.
