Teddy Bridgewater signs with Jets: Free Agency Grade
Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater

Josh McCownsigned a $10 million deal to be the starter, but Bridgewater learning under his guidance is the best thing for him.
Even though he just signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets, who are in dire need of a new signal-caller, Bridgewater might start the 2018 season as a backup to Josh McCown.
It is still remarkable that he is still in the league and poised to become a starting quarterback again after a dislocated knee during training camp prior to the 2016 season nearly led to the amputation of his leg. McCown and the Jets have expressed a desire to get back together as a backup plan.
But McCown returning for a second season does not sit well with some Jets fans, who had high hopes of making a more significant upgrade at quarterback. This year they missed out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, but they have cashed in on former Minnesota Viking quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
So while Bridgewater is a step in the right direction, his presence simply means the Jets have a competent young quarterback on the roster, which is refreshing, but not one that allows Maccagnan to look elsewhere with the sixth pick.
McCown's season ended prematurely after suffering a fractured left (non-throwing) hand, which required surgery, in a Week 14 loss to the Denver Broncos. He also hinted to teammates that he might retire, but he came out publicly in January to say he intends to play at least one more season.
Neither the team nor player has high expectations from the general football public in 2018, which sets this up for a flawless test run. McCown, Julius Peppers and Dwight Freeney were the only players from the 2002 draft still playing in 2017.
