Chicago Bears backup quarterback Josh McCown stopped by ESPN Radio's 'Mike And Mike Show' on Monday morning and talked about his future in the NFL.  McCown said is he decides to leave the windy city, it will have to be for a starting quarterback position.

"If I leave Chicago, if that’s the case, that’s the opportunity I’m looking for,” he said. “And once those opportunities come, what’s the coaching staff? What are the players there in place?"

McCown says he has talked to four teams around the NFL as free agency is set to start at 4pm eastern time on Tuesday. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been highly rumored to be in the running for the 34 year old veteran backup.  McCown played two seasons under new Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith (2011, 2012) while backing up Jay Cutler in Chicago.
