Bridgewater's 2016 knee injury was bad enough that the Vikings didn't want to pay him second-contract starter money when Minnesota could get a proven veteran to lead a team that should be in a Super Bowl window. When healthy, Bridgewater displayed the accuracy, smarts, and maneuverability of a quality starter. He'll compete with Sam Darnold and Josh McCown for the starting job and if Darnold performs well, there's the added bonus Bridgewater could get traded to a QB-needy team.

Summary

By all accounts, Bridgewater had an outstanding spring. The Jets might have been trying to puff up his trade value, but plenty of media lauded the former Vikings first round pick as well, so it seems like he is well on his way to being fully ready for Week 1. There are two ways the Jets can play this if Bridgewater is ready to play NFL ball again. They can roll with him into the season where he would be well motivated to succeed so he can find another contract, buying them time to slow-cook rookie Sam Darnold. Or, they can flip him to a quarterback needy team. It is unlikely the team will be up front with their intentions, so if you draft him, he may not be a Jet by September. We'd be happy to see him on the field again to see what Bridgewater could do if healthy, but that's from an NFL standpoint. In so far as fantasy, Bridgewater would have the same issues any quarterback under center for the Jets would have -- a shaky offensive line and underwhelming weapons. Bridgewater can win the starting job, but would likely still remain nothing more than a very low-end QB3. (June 29)
