The Vikings have since moved on to Kirk Cousins, while Bridgewater lands in NY with a chance to prove everyone wrong.

NY is expected to sign the former Vikings quarterback to a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation.

The move itself is a sensible one that gives the Jets a quarterback who is far from flawless, but who has some traits that any team can work with in building a quality offense.

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.

Bridgewater signing leaves AJ McCarron as the top quarterback remaining on the free agency market. Case Keenum is joining the Denver Broncos while Sam Bradford is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals. He also has been told he will be the starting quarterback in 2018, a source confirmed. The Jets have either struck gold by buying low on a potential franchise quarterback or have taken a flier on a guy they don't even have to start next season.

He will be joining a Jets team with plenty of question marks when it comes to talent on the offensive side of the ball. Along with his injury history, the Jets should look for insurance options if Bridgewater struggles or he runs into health concerns. It could signal the Jets aren't confident in the quarterbacks available with the sixth pick and would rather give Bridgewater a "prove it" deal. They went 5-8 with him in the lineup, failing to win a game after his injury.
