New York Jets sign QB Teddy Bridgewater to deal

Share

The New York Jets signaled their intentions to select a quarterback in this year's National Football League draft by securing the No. 3 overall pick from the Indianapolis Colts. The move from six to third cost the Jets picks six, 37 and 49 in 2018, plus their second-round pick in 2019.

Movement in the top of the draft order from over the weekend has ramped up the bidding in a first-round that could see five quarterbacks taken in the top five, assuming the Browns take a signal caller with the first pick, and then trade down out of the fourth spot. "Plus, the ability to add 7 players in the next two years that are all going to be first or second round picks was attractive to us". However, with both NY franchises being potentially quarterback needy at numbers two and three, John Dorsey may have to go QB at number one and hope that the Giants don't take Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick.

Now, the New York Jets have entered themselves into the discussion.

It bought the startup LuxVue in 2014, and there have been many subsequent reports on how the purchase might be put to use. Bloomberg reported Sunday that Apple has made a significant investment in MicroLED or light-emitting diode displays .

With the Jets nearly guaranteed to use the third pick on a quarterback, the Browns would be assured of having either defensive end Bradley Chubb from North Carolina State or running back Saquon Barkley available with the fourth pick, assuming the Browns take a quarterback No. 1 overall. "It would have to be a pretty attractive offer for us to move back from 6 because of the player we think we will get".

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has attended the pro days of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield and UCLA's Josh Rosen. He projects Sam Darnold at No. 1 to the Browns and Josh Rosen at No. 2 to the Giants.

After losing the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the Jets did re-sign Josh McCown and sign Teddy Bridgewater to presumably take care of their quarterback situation for the 2018 season. Still, many can make the argument that NY would be better off building a sustainable team for the future by bringing along young players. Cleveland has a shot to find their franchise quarterback this year, and they need to do exactly that. So now we get ready to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. (ESPN's Rich Cimini believes Maccagnan doesn't consider Mayfield on the same level as the other three.) It's an excellent position to be in if you're looking for a franchise quarterback in this draft. It has two first round (12, 22), two second-round and two third-round picks this year.Increasingly, it looks like the Dolphins will be out of the market for a first-round quarterback. Previously, at No. 6, the Jets were behind as many as three quarterback-needy teams.

FA Cup won't save Man Utd's season - Matic
The 32-year-old, who can play at full-back or across the midfield, joined United in 2011 and has played 29 matches this season. But this time his anger was firmly directed at the majority of his players.

The Browns own two of the first four picks and could trade the 4th pick to move down. Will the team now look to move up beyond the Jets to No. 2 with the Giants? And I can't wait to know who it will be. But if at least three of the top four quarterbacks on the board are selected in the top four picks, the Broncos will also be left with at least three of the best players overall: Chubb, Barkley or Quenton Nelson.

While the Jets are still way behind the Patriots, this move could be one that will help them for years to come.
