Luke McCown, New Orleans Saints agree to terms on 1-year contract

Posted Mar 26, 2014

Veteran served as Drew Brees' backup

The New Orleans Saints announced Wednesday that they have agreed to terms with quarterback Luke McCown on a one-year contract. The announcement was made by Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

McCown, a 6-foot-4, 217-pound signal-caller entering his 11th NFL season, is a 2004 fourth-round selection of the Cleveland Browns, who served as Drew Brees’ backup in 2013 and as the club’s holder on field goal and extra point attempts. A native of Jacksonville, Texas who went on to star at Louisiana Tech, McCown has played in 38 career games with nine starts in stints with Cleveland (2004), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-08), the Jacksonville Jaguars (2009-11), the Atlanta Falcons (2012) and the Saints (2013). He has completed 184-of-317 career pass attempts for 2,035 yards with nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions for a passer rating of 68.3. He has also carried 34 times for 177 yards (5.2 avg.).

In 2013, McCown appeared in all 16 regular-eason games and both postseason contests as the club’s holder. In the regular season, he threw one incomplete pass and also had three rushes for -4 yards. In the preseason, McCown completed 32-of-49 passes for 378 yards (65.3%) with four touchdowns, one interception and a 107.4 passer rating.
