Buccaneers | Teammate compares Josh McCown to Drew Brees

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 13:52:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Jonathan Casillas said QB Josh McCown reminds him of New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who Casillas played with when he was with the Saints from 2009 to 2012. "It's a strong comparison, but he reminds me of Drew (Brees), not just the way he throws the ball, but his approach to the game. The first one in, the last one out, he's always around. He's very communicable, very personable. And you can tell he's a born leader," Casillas said.
