Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to Sign With Jets

The Jets are apparently moving on from their chase of Kirk Cousins, who is signing with the Minnesota Vikings, but Bridgewater is a risk.

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. He posted a passer rating higher than 100 in eight games, the second most by a Jets quarterback in a single season.

Now, Bradford intends to sign with the Arizona Cardinals while Keenum is expected to take the job with the Denver Broncos.

Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans
Instead, he signed for a below-market one-year, $3.9 million tender that would allow him full-fledged free agency this spring. In three years since taking over as a starter with the Patriots, Butler collected eight interceptions and did not miss a game.

Bills trade Glenn, move up in draft
The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason. The writing on the wall surrounding Glenn's future in Buffalo centered around Dion Dawkins ably filling in for him.

The team did acquire Jermaine Kearse last season from the Seattle Seahawks to add an experienced receiver with a winning pedigree to help mold the Jets receiving unit, which should be a big help for Bridgewater.

The 2014 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year and erstwhile quarterback of the future in Minnesota, Bridgewater is free agency's quintessential wild card with just two pass attempts since suffering a career-threatening knee injury in August of 2016. Along with his injury history, the Jets should look for insurance options if Bridgewater struggles or he runs into health concerns.

The Jets pick No. 6 overall, and barring the unforeseen, at least one of those quarterbacks should be available when NY is on the clock. NY were surprisingly competitive during the season and went 5-8 in games he was under center.
