The New York Jets are working on a deal to bring in Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater as their new signal called, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. Both players are on one-year deals, so they still haven't found their long-term solution at quarterback.
Bridgwater was once a franchise staple of the Minnesota Vikings, but a leg injury suffered prior to the 2016-17 season put not only his status as the go-to guy under center in question, but his entire National Football League career.
UCLA's Josh Rosen, USC's Sam Darnold, Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and Wyoming's Josh Allen are the top four quarterbacks in the draft.
The leg injury pulled a 180 on Bridgewater's career coming off an 11-win season and playoff appearance with the Vikings.
Now, Bradford intends to sign with the Arizona Cardinals while Keenum is expected to take the job with the Denver Broncos. The Vikings have since moved on to Kirk Cousins, while Bridgewater lands in NY with a chance to prove everyone wrong.
Years have gone by where the New York Jets have lost out on either signing or drafting a franchise quarterback.
During his only full season as a starter, Bridgewater threw 14 touchdown passes and nine interceptions while leading the Vikings to the NFC North title in 2015. NY were surprisingly competitive during the season and went 5-8 in games he was under center.
