%name Jets' McCown perseveres as last of QBs from 2002 draft

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Josh McCown’s NFL journey began 15 years ago as the fourth of 16 quarterbacks selected in the 2002 draft.

He’s the only one still playing, and it’s been that way for a while.

The 38-year-old McCown is a study in perseverance, a guy who has been all over the league – the New York Jets being his 10th team – as a starter, backup and sometimes just a training camp arm. Hundreds of players have come and gone since McCown entered the league, but he’s still going strong.
