Teddy Bridgewater Reportedly Nearing Jets Contract After 4 Years with 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.

There is likely to be plenty of rust in Bridgewater's game should he be given the keys to the Jets offense in 2018, meaning NY could bring back McCown to back him up.

NY is working on a deal with Bridgewater, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation.

Knee injuries have kept Bridgewater on the sidelines for much of the past two years as he's appeared in just one game since the end of the 2015 season.

But after his first two (promising) seasons, that very bad injury (torn ACL and dislocated knee joint) derailed his next two seasons.

McCown started 13 games for the Jets in 2017, throwing for 2,926 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Bridgewater, 25, was the No. 32 overall pick by the Vikings in the 2014 National Football League draft and quickly became the team's starter.

Well, Bridgewater is not a lock to be the organization's savior at the position, but it would make for a tremendous comeback story if he winds up helping the Jets become a victor.

The Jets should now focus on signing some of their own guys, including middle linebacker Demario Davis, corner Morris Claiborne, and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, among others. Mayfield or Allen is best for the Jets long-term in this particular situation.

I think Bridgewater is exactly what his name entails, he's going to be a bridge for the future Jets franchise quarterback, whoever they draft come April.

He also led the Vikings to a 12-3 mark in his appearances and a playoff berth, leaving Bridgewater's future in Minnesota uncertain.

If they're able to re-sign Josh McCown (who turns 39 in July) and draft a prominent quarterback sixth (or higher) next month, then they could be in good shape for 2018 and beyond, provided the draft pick actually pans out.
