During the show today, it was announced that the Jets were dealing backup Teddy Bridgewater to the Saints for a third round pick. Colin initially thought Bridgewater would begin the year as the starter over Sam Darnold, but in recent weeks Darnold has closed the gap at such a fast rate it getting rid of Teddy for assets emerged as the obvious move.
Now the Jets need to decide if they want to use the pick in a potential trade for disgruntled Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack, or use the picks to acquire some offensive line help for Darnold so he doesn’t get killed. Regardless of what’s next, today is the day Sam officially became the man today in the Big Apple.
