Earlier in the day, Rapoport reported that that the Jets have been in contact with free agent QB Jay Cutler and are keeping tabs on him right now. According to Rapoport, you can expect the Jets to bring Cutler in for a visit at some point, as they explore their options at quarterback.
The Eagles are expected to released Chase Daniel at some point in the near future, so he too could be someone to keep an eye on for the Jets.

In 2016, McCown threw for 1100 yards while completing 54.5 percent of his passes to go along with six touchdowns and six interceptions over the course of five games.
