The National Football League is down to just its final McCown.
The 36-year-old career backup passer announced his retirement Friday, sending a statement out through his agent, Mike McCartney:
McCown entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick of the Browns in 2004, making four winless starts as a rookie for Cleveland in the post-Tim Couch era.
McCown's final stop in the league came last summer with the Cowboys, but Dallas released him before the start of the season. With scant interest on the open market, Luke is moving on to new horizons.
We wish him well.
