Shortly after giving Josh McCown a one-year, $10 million to return to NY, the Jets agreed to sign ex-Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year deal, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and Dianna Russini.
Whether or not this means the Jets do not draft a quarterback sixth overall is yet to be seen.
The Jets are also interested in Teddy Bridgewater, who missed almost two seasons with a knee injury.

CDC continues to work closely with the family, Atlanta Police Department, and others in the continuing search for CDR Cunningham. Cunningham reportedly made a peculiar comment to his next door neighbor a day before his disappearance.
The Jets have now agreed to deals with two quarterbacks in the legal-tampering period as they reportedly have signed up last year's starting QB Josh McCown to a one-year, $10 million deal.
He will be joining a Jets team with plenty of question marks when it comes to talent on the offensive side of the ball. Both reports say Bridgewater is now the Jets' top target.
McCown is a free agent that could probably be brought back on a cheap deal. 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. The Jets weren't expected to competitive in 2017-18 but played above expectations, albeit winning only five regular-season games and finishing in the cellar of the AFC East.
It would ensure the Jets have plenty of depth and insurance at the position should their plans of making Bridgewater a franchise quarterback go awry.
