Pettine: Fair to Say McCown is Favorite to Start


Browns coach Mike Pettine said Monday he thinks “it’s fair to say” veteran Josh McCown will be the favorite to be the team’s starting quarterback heading into training camp this summer.

Pettine made the comment, which should come as no surprise, during a radio interview with The Bull and the Fox show on 92.3 The Fan.

Local beat writers have been labeling McCown the projected starting quarterback since February, when he signed a three-year, $14 million contract. The deal includes $6.25 million, $5.25 million of which is guaranteed for the 2015 season.
