Jets to sign Teddy Bridgewater

The Jets will look to bring back Josh McCown... and possibly add Teddy Bridgewater

The Jets will look to bring back Josh McCown... and possibly add Teddy Bridgewater

The Jets likely could sign him for $8-$10 million for a one- or two-year deal and have him compete with McCown for the starting job.

If you're sitting in front of your computer screen or smart phone following free agency and trying to figure out what exactly is going on with the New York Jets, you're not alone.

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

NY has also been negotiating toward a deal with former Minnesota Vikings starter Teddy Bridgewater, according to multiple reports.

If Bridgewater is signed and somehow starts much more than a handful of games in 2018, the Jets will be a year too late in any attempt to lose as many games as possible.

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

Jets agreed to terms with QB Teddy Bridgewater, formerly of the Vikings, on a one-year contract.

But Bridgewater still has plenty of promise, and the Jets really need a quarterback. The promise of a breakout campaign in 2016 was derailed by a career-altering left knee injury, and Bridgewater returned for a few garbage time snaps in Week 15 last season. McCown, 38, will be a terrific mentor for the quarterback that the Jets are expected to draft in the first round.

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

It will be interesting to see how the Jets' QB depth chart pans out, as Newsday's Calvin Watkins reported Gang Green told McCown he would be the starter.

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.
