McCown, who turns 38 in July, met with the team over the weekend. He also visited with the Cowboys, but Kellen Moore was re-signed to serve as Dak Prescott's likely backup.
McCown's immediate role with the Jets is in question with last year's starter Ryan Fitzpatrick unsigned. Backup Geno Smith, however, signed with the Giants on Monday while third-year quarterback Bryce Petty struggled in four starts in 2016, throwing seven interceptions before a torn labrum ended his season.
