Jets Ink Bridgewater To One Year Deal

New York Jets Mike Maccagnan

McCown, who originally signed with the Jets last March, started 13 games for the Green & White in 2017 and set personal bests with 2,926 yards passing and 18 touchdowns through the air. Through the day the Jets remained quiet while Cousins went to the Frozen Tundra, Malcolm Butler and Dion Lewis went to Tennessee and all of the Jets unrestricted free agents went to or are going somewhere else. Put Bridgewater, McCown and a rookie quarterback (with one notable exception) in the same room, then there is a significant upgrade.

According to reports from Chris Mortenson and Adam Schefter, free agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has agreed to a one-year deal with the New York Jets. This signing will bring McCown back as a member of the New York Jets. Crowell will look to rejuvenate his career in the Big Apple.

The contracts can't officially sign with the Jets until the free-agency period begins on Wednesday at 4pm ET. Johnson also allowed only 1 touchdown on the year. This moves Morris Claiborne to the #2 spot and Buster Skrine most likely to play the slot.

NY even addressed its need for a kicker, signing Cairo Santos.

Bridgewater, 25, has attempted just two passes since tearing his ACL in 2016. The only game action he saw last season came in the fourth quarter of a blowout victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Bridgewater, out of Louisville has a strong-arm mixed with great athleticism. It gives the Jets a physical back and decreases the likelihood of the Jets using a draft pick on the position in April, allowing them to focus more on premium positions. Avery Williamson, the former Tennessee Titan is a solid starter. How much as changed - not just in five months but in the past five or so days. Quarterback play has been a glaring weakness for Denver since Peyton Manning retired and Keenum will have two of the top wide receivers in the league to throw to in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
