Jets to keep QB McCown, also eye Bridgewater

Jets to keep QB McCown, also eye Bridgewater

At 38, McCown is the veteran quarterback the Jets want mentoring a rookie signal caller and Teddy Bridgewater, who is reportedly working on finalizing a deal with NY.

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.

Although, the drafting of a quarterback would raise an important question: Why the heck did the Jets pay McCown $10 million?

Bridgwater was once a franchise staple of the Minnesota Vikings, but a leg injury suffered prior to the 2016-17 season put not only his status as the go-to guy under center in question, but his entire National Football League career.


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

With Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum and Sam Bradford effectively off the market, the Jets are prepared to roll the dice on former Vikings signal-caller Teddy Bridgewater. Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15.

The 25-year-old was taken with the 32nd overall pick in 2014 and helped lead Minnesota to the playoffs in 2015.

That made Bridgewater New York's new top priority in free agency as other notable quarterbacks flew off the shelf.
