Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to Sign With Jets


Most recently, Bridgewater saw action during garbage time of the Vikings Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals where he attempted two passes, one was incomplete and the other was intercepted.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Jets, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

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

Shortly after giving Josh McCown a one-year, $10 million to return to NY, the Jets agreed to sign ex-Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Dianna Russini. In addition, McCown threw for 2926 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the two sides closed on an agreement and NFL Network broke the news on the value of the deal.

It's common knowledge the Jets were going hard after former Washington Redskins starter Kirk Cousins.

Josh McCown is returning to the Jets on a one-year $10 million deal.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets. He will team up with Darron Lee in the middle of Todd Bowles' defense. He had ties to their new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and they had more money than any of the top QB-needy teams. Bridgewater was a Pro Bowl player in 2015 and looked like a budding star. Running back Matt Forte also recently announced his retirement. They have Bryce Petty, a fourth-rounder three years ago, and Christian Hackenberg, a second-rounder in 2016, on the roster, along with undrafted free agent Joel Stave.

The Jets also appeared poised to make a big splash on defense, with multiple reports saying Tuesday night that NY was close to signing both former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson and former Titans linebacker Avery Williamson.
