According to Josh McCown's agent Mike McCartney, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed quarterback to a two deal contract. 


McCown started five games for the Bears last season, playing in eight overall. He had a 109 passer rating -- third-best in the NFL -- and his total quarterback rating of 85.1 (on a 0-100 scale) was the best in the league last season. McCown's 13 touchdowns and one interception marked the second-best touchdown-to-interception rate in NFL history,

McCown was set to visit both the Houston Texans and the New York Jets but settled for a familiar face in Lovie Smith, whom he played with in Chicago for two seasons.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be introducing their new free agency signings at a 4:30pm press conference later today.
