Jets to sign Teddy Bridgewater

Years have gone by where the New York Jets have lost out on either signing or drafting a franchise quarterback.

ESPN's Chris Mortenson says the deal is for one year and comes off the Jets already signing Josh McCown. The Vikings went with quarterback Case Keenum. They still hold the No. 6 pick in the draft and could very well use it on a quarterback to sit behind McCown and Bridgewater.

McCown started 13 games for the Jets in 2017, throwing for 2,926 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

The 2014 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year and erstwhile quarterback of the future in Minnesota, Bridgewater is free agency's quintessential wild card with just two pass attempts since suffering a career-threatening knee injury in August of 2016.

UCLA's Josh Rosen, USC's Sam Darnold, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen are the top four quarterbacks in the draft.

NY is still expected to consider taking a quarterback with their first round pick in the draft, and they also agreed to a one-year deal with veteran signal caller Josh McCown.

With Bridgewater signing, the best-remaining bridge quarterbacks in free agency is A.J. McCarron and the one team in desperate need of a starting quarterback is Buffalo.
