I thought for sure he'd be cut, but the Phins got something else out of McCown.

Traded him to the Panthers who just lost backup Matt Moore to an injury. Sucks for some of the teams who may have been interested in Beck had he been cut....

Josh McCown sure gets around doesn't he.

The Ravens need to trade for a qb

i guess teh team claimed that it wasn't because of the injury to Moore and instead talked up McCown a whole lot....

Guess they weren't happy with the backup situation behind Delhomme to begin with and the injury, however minor, to Moore sealed that

I would've thought that the Falcons or a team like that would've traded for him. If something happens to Ryan then they have Chris Redman starting for them... Ouch. I always thought that McCown could've made a pretty decent QB had he been given the proper QB coach.

They could do a lot worse than Chris Redman. He aint great but played solid at the end of last year. 1000 yds, 10 TD, 5 INT in the last 5 games last year, cant ask for a ton more out of a #2 QB.

Maybe I just value Redman and other backups too highly after watching Brohm and Flynn all preseason and praying Aaron Rodgers stays healthy....

Its a move that didn't cost much at all, only a late rounder. Delhomme has injury history, Moore has a minor injury but also has played very little. He could definitly struggle as other QBs have looked good for short stretchs and than ended up being bad.

Given how little they gave up for him and concerns with both QBs it is a reasonable move.

If I was Beck I think I'd rather be cut. Young guy playing on an awful team that drafted their own quarterback of the future.

Exactly, get started on a team that wants him as soon as possible. Especially when you factor in just how old Beck is for a second year QB.

the cowboys were the team i read as having the most interest in Beck should he be cut. Maybe this was Parcells giving them a little screw you or something...

I can't believe that Beck is 28-29 years old

You could if you read his scouting profile.

Any truth to the rumors of Chris Simms getting traded to the packers?

yeah that whole missionary mission thing he did really hurt his career I think.

No, you are correct. Chris Redman was pretty solid for us.

Let's not carried away, chums.

Beck just turned 27 over a week ago. (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8294)

for reference, Clinton Portis turns 27 Monday.....

7 years of nfl experience vs. 1 for Beck too......

He might not be 28 or 29 but he's very old for his experience level

Ouch. Miami only gets a seventh-round pick, and they have to pay that $2.5 million signing bonus.

Moore isnt seriously injured but he didn't exactly light it up this preseason. I still think he's a fine option in the future but the team probably wanted other choices than Vinny Testaverde part 2 should Delhomme go down

I'd rather have McCown than Moore as the back up anyway.
