Teddy Bridgewater signs with New York Jets

Cousins was the Jets first option in free agency to take over under center and supply the team with the franchise quarterback the organization has been without for the better part of five decades.

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

It comes hours after top free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins chose to join Bridgwater's former team, the Minnesota Vikings on a three-year deal worth $86 million, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Last season, the Jets were paced by the veteran signal caller McCown, who accounted for 2,926 yards and 18 touchdowns in contrast to nine interceptions. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced it.

But polls are unreliable and it's, therefore, unlikely that they alone would have made Netanyahu decide to have early elections. Lieberman can climb down from his high ladder and support the new draft bill, which represents significant chareidi compromise.

Bridgewater, 25, missed the entire 2016 season and all but one game in 2017 after suffering a torn ACL and dislocated knee during training camp in 2016. They'll also be in the position to trade back with a team such as Buffalo and potentially acquire more first round picks to find their quarterback next year if Bridgewater doesn't work out. McCown had a bounceback season at age 38 to prove he's still capable of leading an National Football League team, guiding NY to an overachieving 5-8 record before succumbing to injury and completing more than 67 percent of his passes.

If it weren't for him, the Jets would have finished that season in a deeper level of mediocrity.

The deal marks the second contract agreement with a quarterback the Jets finalized on Tuesday. Per ESPN's Dan Graziano, the signing of McCown won't necessarily preclude the Jets from also signing Bridgewater.
