After that much-publicized search for a third quarterback, Josh McCown was among 26 players released by the San Francisco 49ers to get their roster to the 53-player limit for the regular season.
My plan was to take in some Blues in the French Quarter after our broadcast of the 49ers game. As it turned out, I didn’t have to wait that long. The blues started at kickoff and lasted until the final gun.
The San Francisco 49ers have added a veteran to the quarterback competition, signing Josh McCown to a one-year deal for the league minimum of $810,000.
