Luke McCown Signed (1 year)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He was very raw coming out of college. Thats why so many teams passed on him. He was picked with the 24th pick. At least 4 teams passed on him....

Rodgers would've been ready to start earlier than he did, and as much has been stated by numerous talkinghead NFL experts in the past.

Re: Luke McCown Signed (1 year)

All we need is a guy who could step in for a series or two. Anything more than that and there's not a back-up in the league who'd offer much more than McCown does.

He's gonna hold a clipboard and place the ball for kicks.

Re: Luke McCown Signed (1 year)

Pat Yasinskas‏@espn_nfcsouth#Saints got QB Luke McCown for a song. Has $840K base salary. But minimum benefit means he'll only count $555,000 toward the cap.
Thats cheaper than a draft pick.

Re: Luke McCown Signed (1 year)

That's very cheap, especially considering that Daniel would've counted around six times as much against the cap, if he would've been re-signed to a similar contract he got from the Chiefs.
