Josh McCown To Serve As Player-Coach

Josh McCown To Serve As Player-Coach”

The New York Jets, per ineptness rules, have no plans to play backup quarterback Christian Hackenberg this season. The aftermath of Josh McCown's season-ending injury would seem like the flawless time to get a second-round sophomore who has yet to play a single snap in the regular season some work, but the coach sees it differently.

Good for McCown. It feels like he isn't sick of football yet and a lot of people say he'll likely become a coach. We're not jumping people over people just to play considering anything. This means heavy involvement in decisions during the game, as well as continuing his mentor-ship of Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. With the Saints, Chargers, and Patriots left on the schedule, Petty is going to struggle, opening up the possibility if not likelihood Hackenberg gets a shot over the next three games.

McCown was a great leader and player for NY this season.

McCown signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Jets in the offseason and is scheduled to be a free agent this winter. Where does that leave the 2016 second-round pick in Hackenberg?

"Yeah, if that's what he wants to do, I could see him being an excellent coach when he's done playing", Bowles said. "Putting the uniform on, that's awesome, but again, for me, it's just been about trying to stay in the same mindset every day: Continue to grow, continue to learn". "When you get the opportunities take full advantage of it. Let it fly, have fun, and that's how I approached it".
