QB McCown signs new Jets deal amid Bridgewater rumours

Shortly after giving Josh McCown a one-year, $10 million to return to NY, the Jets agreed to sign ex-Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Dianna Russini. Both players are on one-year deals, so they still haven't found their long-term solution at quarterback.

Bridgewater was looking like a franchise player in Minnesota before suffering a disgusting knee injury in training camp two years ago.

The 25-year-old was taken with the 32nd overall pick in 2014 and helped lead Minnesota to the playoffs in 2015.

The renewal for the veteran, who turns 39 in July, comes after reports suggested the Jets were also locked in negotiations with QB Teddy Bridgewater, who is leaving the Minnesota Vikings, throughout Tuesday.

Coming in to relieve Bridgewater - post-injury - was Sam Bradford, who posted single-season career -high marks in yards and percentage in 2016-17.

Years have gone by where the New York Jets have lost out on either signing or drafting a franchise quarterback. The former Louisville quarterback did appear in one game last season in place of Case Keenum throwing just two passes, one being an interception. The Jets weren't expected to competitive in 2017-18 but played above expectations, albeit winning only five regular-season games and finishing in the cellar of the AFC East.
