Josh McCown Thinking On Bright Side After Bucs Release

Former Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown is thinking positively after the Bucs released him Wednesday. He told PFT Live that he’s just happy to still have another opportunity in the NFL at his age.

“That’s just business, man, and I understand it,” McCown said. “In perspective, though, there’s a lot worse things than losing your job that can happen to you in life.”

Even though a lot went wrong last year, including the team losing offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford to an illness just before the season got underway, he regrets not winning more games for head coach Lovie Smith.

“I really respect Lovie,” McCown said. “My respect for him hasn’t changed.”

He has confirmed that he is in contact with a few teams but wouldn’t tell PFT which ones.

My agent’s talked to some teams and so we’ll just evaluate as those come in,” McCown said. “It’s an honor and a privilege to play in this league, and there’s 32 teams, and so if one of them calls you, that’s a cool thing to me.”

One thing is for sure, he is considering playing in 2015 and is not considering retirement.
