JACKSONVILLE, Fla.(AP) — Quarterback Luke McCown has passed his
physical with the Jacksonville Jaguars, prompting the team to
cut veteran backup Todd Bouman.
The moved was announced on Sunday.
Jacksonville traded an undisclosed draft pick in 2010 to Tampa
Bay on Saturday night in exchange for McCown. He is 1-6 as a
starter, has completed 59.7 percent of his passes, and has nine
touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. Byron Leftwich beat out
McCown for Tampa Bay’s starting job.
The Jaguars will head into their regular-season opener at
Indianapolis next Sunday with little experience behind starter
David Garrard and a backup still trying to learn the playbook.
