Jonathan Casillas: Josh McCown reminds me of Drew Brees

Larry Fitzgerald isn’t Buccaneers quarterback Josh McCown’s only big fan.

Buccaneers linebacker Jonathan Casillas is also an admirer and watching him practice this offseason has led Casillas to compare the longtime backup with one of the NFL’s most prolific passers. Casillas played with Drew Brees in New Orleans and said he sees some of the Saints quarterback in McCown when asked about the possibility of Mike Glennon winding up as a starter in Tampa this year.

“It’s a strong comparison, but he reminds me of Drew [Brees], not just the way he throws the ball, but his approach to the game. The first one in, last one out, he’s always around,” Casillas said on the Dave Rothenberg Show, via Yahoo Sports. “He’s very communicable, very personable. And you can tell he’s a born leader. You know, he’s not even trying to do much now, but people are following him, just his approach to the game. Glennon is learning a lot from him. So, if Glennon can beat him out this year, that would be great. Because at the end of the day, if Glennon can beat McCown out, then we’re going to get a good quarterback.”

Re: Jonathan Casillas: Josh McCown reminds me of Drew Brees

This has got to be the most overrated signing yet. McCown did well in Chicago against scrubs and having two big receivers to throw to and a rb to take pressure off of him. He actually exposed Cutler more by showing Cutler beats himself.

Re: Jonathan Casillas: Josh McCown reminds me of Drew Brees

When compared to Mike Glennon, Josh McCown seems like Drew Brees.

I can buy that.

I think he was referring to Drew's work ethic and leadership qualities, I doubt he actually meant talent.

Re: Jonathan Casillas: Josh McCown reminds me of Drew Brees

The performance that McCown produced last year was purely Trestman's work. All respect to Lovie but he isn't exactly a QB whisperer.
