Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to Sign With Jets

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. We'll see which side blinks first. It could signal the Jets aren't confident in the quarterbacks available with the sixth pick and would rather give Bridgewater a "prove it" deal. A source said Bridgewater would like to sign a one- or two-year contract with the hopes of parlaying that into a long-term contract in the future. McCown is likely viewed as a mentor-type of quarterback, while Bridgewater is nearly a complete unknown at this point in his career.

Josh McCown signed a $10 million deal to be the starter, but Bridgewater learning under his guidance is the best thing for him.

The Jets are also interested in Teddy Bridgewater, who missed almost two seasons with a knee injury.

He started 12 of his 13 appearances as a rookie in Minnesota, posting 2,919 yards and 14 touchdowns against 12 interceptions.

The leg injury pulled a 180 on Bridgewater's career coming off an 11-win season and playoff appearance with the Vikings.

The Jets are apparently moving on from their chase of Kirk Cousins, who is signing with the Minnesota Vikings, but Bridgewater is a risk. The Jets weren't expected to competitive in 2017-18 but played above expectations, albeit winning only five regular-season games and finishing in the cellar of the AFC East.
