Jets finalizing deal with Teddy Bridgewater


Bridgewater, 25, missed the entire 2016 season and all but one game in 2017 after suffering a torn ACL and dislocated knee during training camp in 2016. After working his way back to the Minnesota roster, he only played one game despite being on the active roster.

When Bridgwater was last seen in significant action, he completed over 65 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns as the Minnesota Vikings won the NFC North and almost (should have?) won a playoff game in 2015.

The New York Jets are clearly in the market for a quarterback, with rumors of a major pursuit of Kirk Cousins or using the 6th overall pick in April's draft as the most common threads.

Minnesota has elected to let quarterbacks Keenum, Sam Bradford and Bridgewater test free agency.

Vacchiano notes that the Jets believe they can offer Cousins more money than any other team, though it's unclear if they'd give him the fully guaranteed three-year contract he is reportedly seeking. The undrafted free agent out of Temple put up 941 yards and seven touchdowns.

But there likely will be an acclimation period for the quarterback after such an extended stay away from regular-season action.

NY is discussing adding Teddy Bridgewater, a free agent after not being brought back by the Vikings. Along with his injury history, the Jets should look for insurance options if Bridgewater struggles or he runs into health concerns.

It would ensure the Jets have plenty of depth and insurance at the position should their plans of making Bridgewater a franchise quarterback go awry.
