Moving Jets land QB Bridgewater, keep McCown


It will be a one-year deal for Bridgewater, with the money not yet reported.

Even after re-signing Josh McCown to a one-year, $10 million deal, the Jets still have $80 million to spend and no Kirk Cousins to spend it on.

However, a torn ACL and dislocated knee suffered in the preseason sidelined him for the entire 2016 season and the start of the 2017 season.

Following the 2015 season, Bridgewater appeared to be secure as the team's franchise quarterback. NY had prioritized Cousins but he has reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with the Vikings. Bryce Petty has proved to be mediocre, and though Christian Hackenberg is still young and going into his third National Football League season, the fact that he hasn't taken a single regular-season snap means the Jets may be ready to move on without him.




After two full seasons with nearly no game action (Bridgewater played nine garbage-time snaps in Minnesota's third-to-last regular-season game) it's fair to question just how much of an impact Bridgewater will have for the Jets, though they are clearly banking on him fulfilling his potential and solidifying the quarterback position. While the deals won't become official until later this week, it's not too early to discuss the fantasy ramifications of Cousins agreeing to terms with Minnesota and Keenum set to leave the Twin Cities for Denver. Although he did rush for 853 yards, he only had 2 touchdowns on 206 carries.

Crowell spent his first four seasons in Cleveland after signing with the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama State in 2014. He caught a career-best 40 passes in 2016. Then another quarterback, a running back and a cornerback. Whether or not he can return to form before his horrific injury a few years ago remains to be seen but he might not be the long-term answer the Jets are looking for at quarterback.

The 26-year-old Williamson will be a replacement at inside linebacker for Demario Davis, who led the Jets in tackles last season with a career season but is 29 and left as a free agent.
