The New York Jets are finalizing a deal with quarterback Teddy Bridgwater, per CBS Sports' Bryant McFadden. It is also worth noting that the Vikings have since landed Kirk Cousins.

The 25-year-old Bridgewater has appeared in just one game since the 2015 season due to knee injuries, stunting his development in the National Football League after putting together a Pro-Bowl campaign.

The Jets pick No. 6 overall, and barring the unforeseen, at least one of those quarterbacks should be available when NY is on the clock.

The Jets have now agreed to deals with two quarterbacks in the legal-tampering period as they reportedly have signed up last year's starting QB Josh McCown to a one-year, $10 million deal.

Coming in to relieve Bridgewater - post-injury - was Sam Bradford, who posted single-season career -high marks in yards and percentage in 2016-17. If he can prove he's healthy a team might be able to rekindle what he had before dislocating his knee.

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. Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15.

Bridgewater, 25, was the No. 32 overall pick by the Vikings in the 2014 NFL Draft.

That made Bridgewater New York's new top priority in free agency as other notable quarterbacks flew off the shelf.
