Jets Working On A Deal With Teddy Bridgewater

Jets Working On A Deal With Teddy Bridgewater

A person with direct knowledge of McCown's contract told The Associated Press the one-year deal, which will be signed when the NFL's free-agent period begins Wednesday, is worth $10 million. Earlier on Tuesday, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Jets and Bridgewater were working on a deal. NY had prioritized Cousins but he has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Vikings. It's been a long offseason, too, waiting to find out what direction the Minnesota Vikings wanted to go at quarterback.

After missing out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the New York Jets have reportedly turned to "Plan B" in their search for a free agent quarterback. Expect him to get a chance to earn the starting job, at least for this year, for the Jets. Even though he just signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets, who are in dire need of a new signal-caller, Bridgewater might start the 2018 season as a backup to Josh McCown.

McCown also tweeted a picture of himself - without any words - in a Jets uniform pumping both fists during a game.


Bridgewater played for the first time in November after suffering a gruesome knee injury before the 2016 season.

As for Teddy, this will be his first full season following his horrendous injury.

The Jets still own the No. 6 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, and they could still take a quarterback with that selection. The Jets also have the sixth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, which they could use on another quarterback such as Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, but the team has needs at almost every position. Crowell would serve as a complement to veteran Bilal Powell and second-year back Elijah McGuire.
