Teddy Bridgewater traded to the New Orleans Saints

Jets QB decision won't disappoint or surprise Sam Darnold

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Saints acquired Bridgewater in a trade with the New York Jets on Wednesday. NY offered that.

The move not only upgrades the Saints' QB2 spot, but it also provides coach Sean Payton with a young signal-caller to groom as a successor to Drew Brees. However, Bridgewater's role with the Jets also was in question when NY selected USC quarterback Sam Darnold third overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. They do not want to waste a win-now year because of a QB injury. Since the Jacksonville Jaguars chose to roll with Blake Bortles and his Jets club went with the rookie Sam Dalnold, starting opportunities were nonexistent.

Brees is now under contract through 2019 after signing a two-year extension worth a reported $50 million this offseason. Even if he doesn't see the field, the ex Louisville star can show his new team on a daily basis in practice that he's ready to take the reigns if Brees walks away after the 2018 season. Or he could stick around for another year as the backup.

Manuel Pellegrini found plenty of positives despite West Ham's third defeat of the Premier League season at Arsenal . I don't know who is telling you this information", said the Spaniard.

Bridgewater returned this season after a horrific knee injury kept him off the field for almost two years. Think of it this way: Aaron Rodgers didn't register his first double-digit win season until age 26.

Bridgewater signed a one-year deal with the Jets during the offseason, but there had been speculation he would get traded. However, many expect that this may be Bridgewater's chance to back up Brees as a potential heir apparent if Brees retires in 2019, as the Saints having no first round pick in 2019.

Bridgewater's journey from franchise quarterback to reclamation project saw another successful chapter this August.
