Buccaneers terminate contract of QB Josh McCown

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have terminated the contract of quarterback Josh McCown, a move Wednesday that clears salary cap space for free agency.

The 35-year-old McCown went 1-10 as a starter and had the second-lowest passer rating in the NFL after signing a two-year, $10 million contract with the Bucs last winter.

Tampa Bay has the No. 1 pick in the draft and is weighing the prospect of making Florida State's Jameis Winston or Oregon's Marcus Mariotta the team's quarterback of the future.
