Jets to re-sign QB McCown; Bridgewater next?

Adjust Comment Print

When it was announced that the deal was for $10 million, it made a bit less sense as there was unlikely to be any team offering him anywhere close to that much money.

Address quarterback: The Jets reportedly are negotiating a deal with Teddy Bridgewater.

This marks the second quarterback the Jets are expected to sign, joining Josh McCown.

It comes hours after top free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins chose to join Bridgwater's former team, the Minnesota Vikings on a three-year deal worth $86 million, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Jets and quarterback Josh McCown have agreed on a one-year contract to keep him in NY, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

Whether or not this means the Jets do not draft a quarterback sixth overall is yet to be seen. Signing Bridgewater will not stop the Jets from drafting a quarterback at No. 6, and perhaps that's the point in him being their "first choice" now.

Bridgewater hasn't started an National Football League game since the playoffs in 2015 due to a major leg injury suffered days before the 2016 season. However, a non contact knee injury kept him out of action for that entire season. Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are likely both goners. Following that, McCown signed, putting the possibility in question, but it looks like Bridgewater is coming to NY nonetheless. ESPN also first reported Tuesday that the Jets and former Browns running back Isaiah Crowell were in contract discussions.

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.
