San Francisco 49ers Desperately Sign QB Josh McCown

Word was the San Francisco Forty-Niners were pursuing a UFL signal-caller. Just a more big name UFL quarterback. I know I know “big name UFL” is an oxymoronic as it gets.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers signed qb Josh McCown. The length of the contract. A couple days ago, Maiocco reported the 49ers were pursuing Daunte Culpepper to become the team’s No. 3 quarterback. None of the Niners options look very promising. Not so franchise QB and former #1 overall pick Alex Smith is the starter. This year’s draft pick Colin Kaepernick will be the #2.

Many are questioning how the colorful personalities will mesh with the Draconian program that Belichick runs. See more on that after the jump.

Ochocinco also spoke with reporters this morning and said he’s willing to change to fit in in Foxboro.

“I’ll always be me. But there’s a certain way the Patriots do it, and I’ve always been a chameleon, and I’m going to do it the Patriot way, which is win,” he said.

He also knows Belichick doesn’t want him to be quite as outspoken and attention-seeking as he was with the Cincinnati Bengals.

“Bill, we had our talk and without him having to say anything, I’ll say, there’s no need for some of the things that have been before,” Ochocinco said.

After a trio of moves, the Seattle Seahawks should now be referred to as Minnesota-northwest.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter — the NFL’s busiest man — reports that the Seahawks and free agent receiver Sidney Rice have agreed to terms on five-year contract that’s worth up to $44 million dollars, including $18.5 million in guarantees.

The deal is contingent on Rice passing a physical, which is no slam dunk considering the former Vikings WR missed most of last season after undergoing hip surgery.
