And he has some serious game.
The Jets posted a video of their gunslinger on Twitter Thursday, with the caption: "Uncle Josh," a reference to Kyrie Irving's character Uncle Drew.
In the video, the 6-foot-4, 212-pound McCown is seen dribbling down the court and pulling off a sick inside-out dribble with his right hand, faking out defenders before putting in a layup. He threw down an alley-oop dunk in another seen, before stepping back and draining a 3-pointer. The video ends with McCown throwing down a powerful one-handed slam.

No way can this be real 😂 I’m shocked 👀— Jordan Jenkins (@jordanOLB) March 22, 2018
100% real— New York Jets (@nyjets) March 22, 2018
Jets linebacker Jordan Jenkins couldn't believe his eyes after watching McCown ball out.
"No way this is real. I'm shocked," he tweeted.
"100 percent real," the Jets replied.
The footage is from 2014, when McCown showed off his skills at Anquan Boldin's charity basketball tournament at Pahokee High School in Pahokee, Fla. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall also came out for that event.
McCown, 38, re-signed with the Jets on March 15 on a one-year, $10 million contract. He signed the pact while in a parking lot of a Chick-fil-A.
