NEW YORK (AP) Teddy Bridgewater is getting a fresh start in a new place that suddenly has a crowded quarterbacks room - and could be adding another signal caller soon.
The New York Jets signed the former Minnesota Vikings star to a one-year contract, making the deal official Sunday.
Bridgewater's signing comes a day after the Jets traded up to acquire the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft from the Colts - likely with the intention of assuring themselves of getting one of the top available quarterbacks. New York dealt its first-rounder - No. 6 overall - along with two second-rounders and next year's second-rounder for Indianapolis' top pick this year.
