Teddy Bridgewater: Signing with Jets

Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater

At least that is what was evident when Hackenberg got to play football in meaningless preseason games. The Jets accomplished this, signing five players on Wednesday who could become starters in 2018. Johnson, is 28, the same age as the man he replaced, Morris Claiborne. In 13 games, he completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 2,926 yards, 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

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

McCarron, 27, has made just four starts in his National Football League career: three at the end of the 2015 regular season and one in the playoffs in place of an injured Andy Dalton.

Youth was also a factor at two positions - inside linebacker and running back.

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Jets, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen. "Very nice kid, very humble". The Jets did not acknowledge those signings in the hours after free agency kicked off Wednesday, but monetary details of the contracts started emerging over the course of the day. According to a source, Catanzaro's contract is for three years and $9.75 million, with $3.75 million guaranteed. He rushed for 853 yards with an average of 4.1 yards per carry last season. That's a big reason the Jets only made this a one-year deal. Forte had said when running backs turn 30, the theory is they go downhill. Powell turns 30 October 27. New offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates might do the same, and if so, he'll have two young ones in Elijah McGuire, 23, and Crowell. His backup is 25-year-old Teddy Bridgewater.

It is unclear if the Jets will also consider drafting a quarterback with the sixth overall pick next month.

Bridgewater was looking like a franchise player in Minnesota before suffering a disgusting knee injury in training camp two years ago. Schefter later revealed the Bridgewater's deal contains a max value of $15 million if he can hit incentives. And if the Jets indeed use pick No. 6 on a quarterback, both could be in danger.

So who's left after that initial wave?
