The Daily News reported on a number of deals the Jets agreed to on Tuesday, including with cornerback Trumaine Johnson, running back Isaiah Crowell, inside linebacker Avery Williamson and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. NY will be the team, in a fitting twist, to give former Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater a chance to become a starter again in the NFL.
Bridgewater has thrown one pass in two years with the team that drafted him in 2014 in the Minnesota Vikings after he suffered a severe knee injury during training camp in 2016.
