The New York Yankees have officially announced that they have named Josh McCouty their new face to play quarterback for the 2018 season.
McCown has been on the sidelines for the past two seasons, but he will finally get his chance to start for the New England Patriots.
The Giants will take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 3, 2019.
McCown was in camp with the team during the off-season, but it was not until after the Giants selected Marcus Mariota that he officially announced his intentions to be part of the team.
The former University of Texas star was signed to the Patriots on Dec. 31.
He spent time with the Jets and was in the final year of his rookie deal when the team drafted Paxton Lynch.
McComby will likely get the opportunity to play under new head coach Bill Belichick.
Belichick will have a full complement of receivers and tight ends to work with, and McCown should get some help with that.
After his first season with the Patriots, McCown was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in March 2018.
He started the next season with a bang, throwing for 1,079 yards and 13 touchdowns.
He also had eight picks and a pair of rushing touchdowns.
The Patriots made the playoffs and lost to the New Orleans Saints in the wild card round.
McCown will be a free agent after the 2019 season, but the team is willing to offer him a deal that includes an extension.
