The Facts: According to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini, the Jets are open to trading Bridgewater.
Diehards Line: Cimini went on to explain, however, such a move would hinge on a few factors. Namely: Is there a market for Bridgewater? Right now, the answer is no, but that could change with one injury in the preseason. In 2016, the Eagles were prepared to go into the season with Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Wentz, but they traded Bradford to the Vikings, who needed an injury replacement for Bridgewater. So yes, Bridgewater could be deemed expendable if rookie Sam Darnold wins the job. In that scenario, why keep Bridgewater and veteran backup Josh McCown? They'd be paying Bridgewater and McCown a total of $16 million to sit on the bench. ... Something worth watching as we move through August.
