Josh McCown reaches two-year deal with Bucs

In relief of Jay Cutler, Josh McCown had a remarkable season (or half season) for the Bears in 2013.

Over eight games, McCown completed a career-high 66.5 percent of his pass attempts for 1,829 yards with a phenomenal 13:1 TD-to-INT ratio.

McCown has parlayed last year's success into an opportunity to compete as a starter. According to his agent, McCown has agreed to a two-year deal with the Bucs.

Starting 13 games as a rookie, Mike Glennon completed 59.4 percent of his pass attempts for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

It will be hard for McCown to duplicate last year's success without Marc Trestman (and receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall), but I do think he begins the season as the team's starter.
