I wish him luck. He's had a tough couple of years.

Rough place to land but wish him well. At least he and Case are going to the AFC. Easier to root for their success.

Excellent point. I honestly would love to see Bradford do well. I feel bad for him. Just awful luck. No different than Teddy. But Bradford is a true stud when healthy and on a decent team. I wish all of them well. Good news is, we land a stud QB and still have more of free agency along with the draft to continue to make this team better and better. And we will now land some compensatory picks for next year. For Bradford, Teddy and probably McKinnon. Case and Kirk will cancel each other out.

Yeah. I wish he could've gone to a better situation. I normally don't cheer for ex Vikings players. Once they leave, they become them. I'm going to cheer for Teddy.

Man, I wish he could have gone somewhere else. .. Still, I hope he wins a couple superbowls with the Jets.

I have a bad feeling about this.

Jets fans are going to crucify this guy unless he comes in and lights up the AFC East. They're already a bitter fanbase, and with good reason. First of all, they're in the same division as New England. Second, what a terrible organization. There are two big reasons they've got $90 million in cap space. One ... they rarely draft well, so they don't have to spend a lot of money to re-sign guys off their rookie deals. Two ... nobody wants to go there. I mean, they don't even have their own stadium. They're always pulling stupid stuff like signing Brandon Marshall and drafting Christian Hackenberg in the 2nd round.

Also, since they're drafting at No. 6, Teddy could end up being a 1-year (or less) bridge quarterback, and then back to holding a clipboard.

2019 superbowl: Teddy Bridgewater leads the NY Jets in a clutch victory over the offensive machine of the Sam Bradford led Arizona Cardinals, along with standout performances by Larry Fitzgerald and Adrian Peterson.

Well we know that can't happen because the Cards cut Peterson.

Jets re-signed McCown. Teddy still unsigned.

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2018

Yeah, I think it does. I think it means they used Teddy to get McClown to sign. I still think Teddy ends up in Buffalo.

The #Jets are working on a deal for QB Teddy Bridgewater, source said. It is not his only option. But it is their first choice.
