Josh McCown visiting Bills, trying to work out deal

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown is visiting with the Buffalo Bills and the two sides are attempting to work out a deal Monday, sources told ESPN.

If McCown can't reach a deal with the Bills, he is expected to visit other teams in the next few days, a source said.

McCown, 35, was released by the Buccaneers last week. He started 11 games last season, completing 56.3 percent of his passes for 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and a 70.5 quarterback rating.

The Bills are in need of help at quarterback this offseason. With Kyle Orton retiring, only EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel remain on the Bills' roster at quarterback.

McCown has been with eight teams since entering the NFL in 2002 as a third-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals. His best season came in 2013, when he started five games for the Chicago Bears in place of Jay Cutler, posting 13 touchdowns, one interception and a 109.0 quarterback rating.
