Jets add more pieces after acquiring Bridgewater

Posted March 15, 2018

Today, roughly 24 hours since the start of free agency, it is being reported that Cousins will sign with the Vikings. After the season, he said he wanted to continue playing, but the Jets emerged as possible contenders in the sweepstakes for Cousins. Both players are on one-year deals, so they still haven't found their long-term solution at quarterback. The deal is for 1-year at $10 million and creates more questions than answers.

It seems likely the Jets will add a high draft pick quarterback to that duo of Bridgewater and McCown, which would mean the end of the line for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

With McCown coming back, the Jets aren't necessarily set now at the quarterback position — although Bowles traditionally opens the offseason program with the incumbent penciled in at No. 1 on the depth chart.

Former undrafted free agent Crowell is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Jets.

Terms of the deal have not been revealed, but the New York Jets may be one of the most interesting and unusual fits for Bridgewater considering the weather and supporting cast the team has to offer. The signing created a bit of a stir on social media due to some poor decisions in Crowell's past, but from a pure football standpoint, the move makes sense.

McCown agreed on a one-year contract to keep him in NY, which will reportedly pay McCown $10million for the 2018 season.

A person with direct knowledge of McCown's contract told The Associated Press the one-year deal, which will be signed when the NFL's free-agent period begins Wednesday, is worth $10 million.

The New York Jets are calling an audible and turning to a familiar face as their backup plan at quarterback. Johnson gives the Jets a true number one cornerback who thrives in press coverage. It was so bad that he almost needed his leg amputated.

Williamson turned down a four-year, $12m deal to remain with the Titans. As mentioned by long-time Jets play-by-play man Bob Wischusen in a quote from an official from another National Football League club.
