Jets to sign Teddy Bridgewater

Jets to sign Teddy Bridgewater

Johnson was given the franchise designation in February 2016 and again in 2017 and played the past two seasons with Los Angeles on the one-year tender.

If they wanted to get a starter the Jets would have to take a risk.

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.

Smart out indefinitely with torn thumb tendon
Team officials said Irving, who had seven points in 16 minutes against in , had left knee soreness and was not returning. Smart is one of Boston's best defenders, and always seems to make a key play whenever the Celtics need it most.

Later on Tuesday, the Jets agreed a deal with former Minnesota Vikings signal-caller Bridgewater, according to ESPN.

The 2014 first-round pick threw just two passes — including an interception — last season in his return from a serious knee injury in August 2016.

That means the Jets, who were among the teams linked to Cousins, must look elsewhere in their search for a quarterback, and ESPN's Dianna Russini is hearing NY will target Teddy Bridgewater.

Claire Foy Got Paid LESS Than Matt Smith For The Crown
She also appeared on screen more than her TV husband, in scenes surrounding to the Queen's early days as the monarch. Matt Smith is more famous because of his run in Doctor Who , but Claire Foy wasn't exactly some unknown actress.

It is unclear if the Jets will also consider drafting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick next month. NFL Network insider Ian Rapaport is reporting that the deal is worth approximately $28 million per year. He will team up with Darron Lee in the middle of Todd Bowles' defense. Bridgewater was a Pro Bowl player in 2015 and looked like a budding star. Bridgewater also could maximize his value if he were to play well and is a free agent again next year, allowing him to seek out a far bigger deal. He had ties to their new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and they had more money than any of the top QB-needy teams.

The Jets were looking to add a running back after the retirement of Matt Forte. Crowell would serve as a complement to veteran Bilal Powell and second-year back Elijah McGuire.

The Jets also appeared poised to make a big splash on defense, with multiple reports saying Tuesday night that NY was close to signing both former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson and former Titans linebacker Avery Williamson.
