Jets GM open to drafting another quarterback

Newly signed quarterback Josh McCown’s role as starter for the New York Jets certainly isn’t set in stone, evident by general manager Mike Maccagnan’s openness about possibly drafting another QB in the 2017 NFL Draft next month.

“I don’t think taking a player at one position is a referendum on another player,” Maccagnan said, per Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.com.

“I think the goal is to put together [the] best roster you can. Of course quarterback is a very, very important position in this process. But I wouldn’t necessarily view it as a referendum… Our plan is to basically find the best group of quarterbacks we can,” he added “We’ve obviously made a move in pro free agency. There’s still the college draft. All options are on the table at the quarterback position with us going forward.”
