  • Jets Sign Teddy Bridgewater To 1 Year $5 Million

    Jets adding Teddy Bridgewater to mix at QB

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - The New York Jets are signing Teddy Bridgewater, formerly a Minnesota Vikings starter, agreed to a one-year contract, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen

    Bridgewater, 25, said recently he still considers himself a starter, which will make for a spirited competition in training camp. He was considered a rising star in the NFL ahead of a gruesome dislocated knee injury sustained during a Vikings non-contact drill just before the 2016 season

    He was sidelined for 14 months during his recovery and placed on the PUP list, where he spent the first six weeks of the 2017 season. He was medically cleared to return to practice and, from Weeks 10-17, served as the backup to Case Keenum. The only game action he saw last season came in the fourth quarter of a blowout victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

    The Vikings chose to not toll Bridgewater's rookie contract, thus allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.
