METARIE, La. —
Luke McCown, who is from Jacksonville, signed a one-year contract to back up Drew Brees as quarterback of the New Orleans Saints on Monday.
McCown was in training camp with the Saints last year, but he eventually became a member of the Atlanta Falcons.
McCown will be entering his 10th season in the NFL.
He hasn’t thrown a pass in a regular-season NFL game since starting two games for the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2011 campaign.
