New York Jets: Make some solid free agent moves

The New York Jets and former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater reached an agreement on a one year deal Tuesday.

After losing out on the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, they brought back Josh McCown on a one-year deal worth $10 million on Wednesday. After all, a year ago, it was Jared Cook-not Amari Cooper or Michael Crabtree-leading the team in receiving with 54 catches for 688 yards and two touchdowns.

He finishes his career with the Vikings with 6,150 yards and 28 touchdowns along with 22 picks.

The quarterback wrote in a Twitter post that included a photo by one of his sons that he was waiting for some food at a Chick-fil-A restaurant while signing his new contract.

Southampton hope to have their new boss in place before facing Wigan on Sunday for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals. Of this season's contrasting fortunes, Pellegrino said: "We have been living a hard season for many reasons".

Interestingly, former National Football League player Bryant McFadden had previously reported the Jets were working on finalizing a deal with Bridgewater.

He won the starting job last season and went on to tie a career-mark with 13 starts. Williamson has 11½ sacks and 377 tackles with two interceptions and three forced fumbles.

The Jets were looking to add a running back after the retirement of Matt Forte.

These moves without a doubt make the Jets better as they will continue to be active in free agency this offseason. And if the Jets signed Cousins, maybe McCown wouldn't have re-signed. There was initially some fear that Bridgewater would never play football again due to the severity of the injury. The one year deal he agreed to may be an audition contract to see just how good he can be after his injury.

More details to come, stay tuned. He could become a solid starter for the Jets. Hackenberg, however, has yet to register a regular season snap since the Jets drafted him in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In the Jets base 3-4 defense Williamson will most likely take Josh Martin's spot and will play alongside Demario Davis, Darron Lee and Jordan Jenkins.
