    Jets' Josh McCown embraces role as bridge quarterback

    At the age of 38, it goes without saying that veteran Josh McCown isn’t exactly the future of the Jets at quarterback.

    Lots will be different for the Jets when they open training camp in one week. Veterans will be missed. Rookies have come aboard. Fresh faces will litter the coaching staff. Another thing that will be different? Darron Lee’s uniform number. Last season the linebacker wore No. 50 as a rookie. This season he will switch to No. 58. Why did Lee decide to change his number? “It’s just all of my numbers in my lifetime added up,” Lee told the Jets website. When Lee joined the Jets last season, LB Erin Henderson wore No. 58.
