It will be a one-year deal for Bridgewater, with the money not yet reported.
In his first season with the Jets in 2017, McCown had the best season of his long career. He also added 124 rushing yards and 5 scores on the ground. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't announced it.More news: GOP lawmakers criticize Murphy's tax hike plan
His future with the Jets and in the National Football League was uncertain after he broke his left hand at Denver on December 10 and finished the season on injured reserve.
Few fanbases have struggled in a franchise's quest to find a quarterback like the New York Jets fans.
Bridgewater was looking like a franchise player in Minnesota before suffering a disgusting knee injury in training camp two years ago. He was a Pro Bowl selection after his second season and was largely considered a rising star at his position before the injury. Through The Sanchize, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg, Kellen Clemmens, Josh McCown, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and so many more atrocious starters the Jets have continuingly missed at quarterback. They still hold the No. 6 pick in the draft and could very well use it on a quarterback to sit behind McCown and Bridgewater. Following that, McCown signed, putting the possibility in question, but it looks like Bridgewater is coming to NY nonetheless.
