Free Agent QB Josh McCown Visiting the Browns

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In 2004, the Cleveland Browns drafted quarterback Luke McCown. 11 years later, they are hosting his older brother, Josh McCown, for a free agent visit, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN:

The Browns' interest in McCown was first reported last week. Teams are able to host him prior to the start of free agency because the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut him a few weeks ago. McCown just left Buffalo without a contract; will Cleveland consider making him an offer, or are they just doing their due diligence on the free agent market?

I have to imagine they are just keeping all options open. McCown received a big contract from the Buccaneers last year, and if those are his demands again in 2015, I can't imagine the Browns committing that money to him.
