The New York Jets are expected to sign quarterback Teddy Bridgewater when the National Football League free agency period officially starts on March 14, according to an initial report from Bryant McFadden.
He spent the past four years with the team, but played just one game over the past two seasons due to injury.
The 25-year-old was taken with the 32nd overall pick in 2014 and helped lead Minnesota to the playoffs in 2015.

So while Bridgewater is a step in the right direction, his presence simply means the Jets have a competent young quarterback on the roster, which is refreshing, but not one that allows Maccagnan to look elsewhere with the sixth pick.
Although, the drafting of a quarterback would raise an important question: Why the heck did the Jets pay McCown $10 million?
But McCown returning for a second season does not sit well with some Jets fans, who had high hopes of making a more significant upgrade at quarterback. They went 5-8 with him in the lineup, failing to win a game after his injury.
