Former Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater appears fully recovered from the torn ACL he suffered back in 2016. Bridgewater is currently lighting it up for New York at OTAs and that’s such a big turnaround for a player whose career was once in doubt. Maybe the most intriging part of the 25 year old’s success is how it will impact the depth chart? Josh McCown is slated to be the number one guy but if Bridgewater can keep delivering big plays he might end up getting the nod at somepoint. That’s not because McCown is bad, it just that his career is winding down. Bridgewater on the other hand could play for another decade or so and that might be more appealing to Head Coach Todd Bowles. Then there’s the question of how all this will affect Sam Darnold? Darnold was the Jets top draft pick this past Spring and sooner or later he’ll be asked to carry this franchise. Having too many good quarterbacks is a great problem to have but someone will have to be shipped out. Unless New York is alright with keeping Sam Darnold as a back up for two or three seasons like the Packers did with Aaron Rodgers they’re about one quarterback too deep at the position. It’s very unlikely the Jets will want to trade a player who they just drafted with the third overall pick. So that’s leaves McCown or Bridgewater as the candidates to be dealt before the season ends. Of course the team could just wait until McCown retires but New York wouldn’t get any value in return if they go that route. Which makes it obvious the front office should either trade away McCown or Bridewater A.S.A.P to at least get an addition draft pick for the future. With the way Bridewater is playing it seems like he is the guy who should be retained.
