Shortly after giving Josh McCown a one-year, $10 million to return to NY, the Jets agreed to sign ex-Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Dianna Russini.
For a moment, it looked like we had something cemented on former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. If the Jets do in fact draft a quarterback McCown will most likely play a huge mentor role for the youngster while also providing the Jets with stable quarterback play.
He finishes his career with the Vikings with 6,150 yards and 28 touchdowns along with 22 picks.
NY swiftly turned its attention to Bridgewater following a failed pursuit of coveted free agent Kirk Cousins. Bridgewater's arrival, coupled with the re-signing of McCown, hints that NY could subsequently part ways with one, if not both, of its backups.
Here are ABC's American Idol 16 ratings expectations
ABC isn't messing much with the " Idol " formula, and host Ryan Seacrest will resume the job he had for the first 15 seasons. Still, her cameo might remind viewers of " Idol's " two other big-name alums - Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson.
He won the starting job last season and went on to tie a career-mark with 13 starts. Along with turnovers, Johnson has two forced fumbles and three fumbles recovered.
Crowell is joining the Jets on a three-year contract, adding depth to their backfield following the retirement of Matt Forte. And if the Jets signed Cousins, maybe McCown wouldn't have re-signed.
It's certainly not too hard to believe Bridgewater and his representatives are taking their time finding him the best possible deal.
However, he missed the entire 2016 season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and dislocated his left knee, and he appeared in only one game last season. Both players are on one-year deals, so they still haven't found their long-term solution at quarterback. If Bridgewater is going to become a No. 1 starter again, he's got to produce big numbers on a consistent basis. Hackenberg, however, has yet to register a regular season snap since the Jets drafted him in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. When looking back at the top Jets defenses they were anchored by solid corner play.
