Jets players, fans react to Josh McCown signing on Twitter

Jets players, fans react to Josh McCown signing on Twitter”

Plan B for the Jets is in full effect after their top free-agent target, quarterback Kirk Cousins, has reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year, fully guaranteed contract with the Vikings.

Whether or not this means the Jets do not draft a quarterback sixth overall is yet to be seen.

The Jets had high hopes going into free agency, since they had the most space available under the salary cap.

McCown signed a one-year deal worth $6 million with the Jets last season, but has parlayed a strong 2017 performance into another - and bigger - deal with NY, as the veteran quarterback has just agreed to one-year, $10 million contract with the team.

Bridgewater hasn't started an National Football League game since the playoffs in 2015 due to a major leg injury suffered days before the 2016 season. Case Keenum is joining the Denver Broncos while Sam Bradford is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals.

It is still remarkable that he is still in the league and poised to become a starting quarterback again after a dislocated knee during training camp prior to the 2016 season nearly led to the amputation of his leg.

There might not be a better marriage between rising team and player than Teddy Bridgewater and the New York Jets. They went 5-8 with him in the lineup, failing to win a game after his injury. They still hold the No. 6 pick in the draft and could very well use it on a quarterback to sit behind McCown and Bridgewater.
