Jets bring back QB Josh McCown; also in talks with Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater If Jets ink Bridgewater, Little Changes for Maccagnan
Andrew Cummings | 15 March, 2018, 02:34

Most recently, Bridgewater saw action during garbage time of the Vikings Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals where he attempted two passes, one was incomplete and the other was intercepted. After the season, he said he wanted to continue playing, but the Jets emerged as possible contenders in the sweepstakes for Cousins.

During that short delay in the Bridgewater deal, reports surfaced of another one-year deal for the Jets' own free agent quarterback in Josh McCown.

NY is discussing adding Teddy Bridgewater, a free agent after not being brought back by the Vikings.

McCown, 38, started 13 games in his first season with the Jets in 2017, posting career highs in passing yards (2,926) and touchdowns (18).

It's common knowledge the Jets were going hard after former Washington Redskins starter Kirk Cousins.

Although, the drafting of a quarterback would raise an important question: Why the heck did the Jets pay McCown $10 million?

Former undrafted free agent Crowell is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Jets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the two sides closed on an agreement and NFL Network broke the news on the value of the deal.

NY will have a bit of a new look on offense this season, too, with coordinator John Morton fired and replaced by quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates. He was a Pro Bowl selection after his second season and was largely considered a rising star at his position before the injury. But having McCown and possibly Bridgewater could buy time for a top draft pick and create an intriguing training camp competition. At 25 years old, Crowell is still a young player with a future ahead of him.

The Jets were looking to add a running back after the retirement of Matt Forte.

Terms of the deal have not been revealed, but the New York Jets may be one of the most interesting and odd fits for Bridgewater considering the weather and supporting cast the team has to offer.
