QB McCown signs new Jets deal amid Bridgewater rumours

It's okay to be angry for 24 hours Jets fans, then we have to get back on the saddle and be encouraged by the Jets upcoming moves.

The New York Jets are working on a deal for Teddy Bridgewater, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Bridgewater missed all of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL and dislocating his knee.

Bridgewater is a high character player who has played well at times and may very well become the team's QB of the future, but until he proves he can be that guy, Maccagnan still has to secure a quarterback with the 6th pick (or higher) come draft day.

Bridgewater has thrown for 6,150 yards, 28 touchdowns and 22 interceptions in 30 National Football League games.

Following the 2015 season, Bridgewater appeared to be secure as the team's franchise quarterback. He hasn't been given the reigns as a starter since the 2015 NFC playoffs, and no one knows how it will affect him playing in windy New Jersey instead of a dome in Minnesota.

Bridgewater has stated that he wants to start in 2018, and with Cousins' impending arrival in Minnesota, he's highly unlikely to do so if he stays with the Vikings. That means that Jets must find another quarterback to fill their glaring need at that position this offseason.

Now although you may be upset at the fact the Jets didn't sign Cousins, Bridgewater is extremely cheaper, has a lot more to prove, and can be a great mentor for a younger quarterback if the Jets decide to draft one.

"Surprisingly good" and "5-11" should rarely be in a sentence but given the talent the Jets rolled out on the field in 2017, head coach Todd Bowles worked miracles with journeyman quarterback Josh McCown, a rag-tag running-back corps and no-name wide receivers. Yes, they have to. The Jets will certainly be counting on that if they do manage to convince him to come to NY and be their possible long-term solution at quarterback.
