Josh McCown spent the 2019 season as a quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles. He backed up Carson Wentz and found himself making his first ever appearance in a playoff game when he came in to relieve an injured Wentz in the Eagles’ loss to the Seahawks. In that game, McCown suffered a torn hamstring (off the bone) and continued to play an entire half with the injury.
Overall, he’s played 17 NFL seasons with 11 different teams (Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Dolphins, Panthers, 49ers, Bears, Buccaneers, Browns, Jets and Eagles). McCown was originally selected in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals, after playing his college football at Sam Houston State.
On this episode of the podcast, McCown shares a health update on his torn hamstring, getting the opportunity to play in his first ever playoff game, why he came out of retirement to play in 2019, what faith in the Eagles locker room was like, and what his plans are for 2020.
