The Houston Texans released veteran quarterback Josh McCown on Monday, likely ending his 18-year NFL career. The Texans signed the 41-year-old in November, but he did not appear in a game. McCown joined the Texans after spending the early part of the season on the Eagles practice squad, a job that allowed him to stay at his home in Texas because of the pandemic instead of reporting to Philadelphia.
The Houston Chronicle’s John McClain and Aaron Wilson discuss possible trade destinations for Deshaun Watson as the quarterback is dug in on leaving Houston on this episode of the Texas Sports Nation podcast.
Watt was released last month by the Houston Texans, for whom he won three NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards. A person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press that the total package is worth $31 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team did not reveal any terms.
