The New York Jets are working on a deal to bring in Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater as their new signal called, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. He posted a passer rating higher than 100 in eight games, the second most by a Jets quarterback in a single season.

Bridgewater was looking like a franchise player in Minnesota before suffering a awful knee injury in training camp two years ago. Nothing that happens in free agency will preclude them from considering a quarterback with the sixth pick in the draft, a source said.

Maccagnan and the Jets, as an organization, have missed on the game's most important position too many times to sit back and be content with a highly touted, yet still unproven quarterback if this deal does in fact go through.

The Jets shifted their attention to McCown once it became apparent that Cousins is planning to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. If he can prove he's healthy a team might be able to rekindle what he had before dislocating his knee. Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15.

The 25-year-old quarterback was the final pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft after a standout collegiate career at Louisville.

Bridgewater signing leaves AJ McCarron as the top quarterback remaining on the free agency market.
