Teddy Bridgewater signs with New York Jets

ESPN's Chris Mortenson says the deal is for one year and comes off the Jets already signing Josh McCown.

He spent the past four years with the team, but played just one game over the past two seasons due to injury. They still hold the No. 6 pick in the draft and could very well use it on a quarterback to sit behind McCown and Bridgewater.

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

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.

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

McCown signed a one-year deal worth $6 million with the Jets last season, but has parlayed a strong 2017 performance into another - and bigger - deal with NY, as the veteran quarterback has just agreed to one-year, $10 million contract with the team.

Cousins was the Jets first option in free agency to take over under center and supply the team with the franchise quarterback the organization has been without for the better part of five decades. Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15.

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