Today, the New York Jets have reached an agreement to sign former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal after the Vikings signed Kirk Cousins to a 3-year, $84 million dollar contract.
The New York Jets have reached an agreement to sign QB Teddy Bridgewater sources tell me and @mortreport. It’s a one year deal.— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) March 14, 2018
After suffering a devastating knee injury prior to the 2016 season, Bridgewater’s promising career really never was able to takeoff. Teddy was able to finally see the field toward the end of last season, however, Case Keenum was able to take full control over the starting position and would end up leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship.
Joining Bridgewater in New York will be NFL journeyman Josh McCown, who also signed a one-year deal that is reportedly worth $10 million. I’m not really sure what is more surprising: Josh McCown still being in the league or that someone is willing to pay him $10 million.
Anyway, best of luck to Teddy and here’s to him finding future success in New York.
