Jets Free Agent Signings

Jets add Teddy Bridgewater and Trumaine Johnson

Admin - March 13, 2018

The Gang Green continued being active on the eve of free agency, reportedly reaching agreements with CB Trumaine Johnson and QB Teddy Bridgewater. Johnson was ultimately the best free agent cornerback available on the market, while Bridgewater's 1-year deal is an attempt to sign a potential starter without jeopardizing the future in case if he fails to deliver.

Johnson, 28, was franchised by the Rams the past two seasons. He started 65 of 82 games in six seasons with the Rams, intercepting 18 passes and defending 67. The Jets are expected to sign him at $15M per year.

Bridgewater, 25, played just one game in the last two seasons after suffering a season ending leg injury before the 2016 campaign. He threw 14 touchdown passes in each of his first two seasons in the league, averaging a little over 3,000 passing yards per season.
