McCown Signs in Detroit

Postby mutantseabass » Thu Mar 16, 2006 12:24 pm

Per ESPN radio and 1270 AM Detroit. link to follow, reportedly 2 years.


Like i said in the Kitna thread there was no way that Joey was being brought back for that amount of money.

I like McCown backing up Kitna. Great signing by the Lions.

I don't see Kitna as the clear cut starter. McCown and Kitna will battle it out and the winner will start. Who can pick up the playbook faster and who will Martz like better. Odds are in Kitna's favor but I don't think it is a given.

I'm surprised that McCown wanted to play there...I thought he wanted to be a starter or nothing (they all do but you know what I mean).

They probably told him there'd be an open competition for the job...I'm sure Martz will like McCown from the beginning since he'd be used to the old Rams style of offense, but I don't know if he has more skill than Kitna.

Wow, Roy and Mike are looking like they might be steals in fantasy drafts at this point.
