Former Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be traded to the New Orleans Saints, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. It's a big deal for both teams - the Saints get a potential quarterback of the future for when Drew Brees retires, while the Jets now can give the reigns over to first-round pick Sam Darnold.
The Jets signed Bridgewater in the offseason and his play in the preseason made him one of the NFL's most tradable assets.
Team India Star Match Winner hit by Injury ahead of 4th Test
It's all very well mugging India at Lord's when it's damp and dark, but putting them in at Trent Bridge was a daft mistake. Both Virat Kohli and Joe Root are happy with the pitch and have issued their intent to bat first if they win the toss.
Minnesota selected Bridgewater out of Louisville with the 32nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and after a Pro Bowl season in 2015, in which the Vikings went 11-5, he looked ready to take another step forward in 2016.
The Saints could be a tremendous landing spot for Bridgewater as he can use another season of recovery for his knee while learning behind one of the greatest quarterbacks in National Football League history, Drew Brees. "He's a successful quarterback and we know he will be a great addition to our quarterback room".

At first, it seemed like the Jets were on their way to Philadelphia before pulling over and letting Bridgewater off when news of the trade broke. NY also brought back veteran QB Josh McCown, who completed 67.3% of his passes for 2,926 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games last season.
Bridgewater also brushed off trade rumors - something he was constantly asked about as it became clearer that the Jets were leaning toward Darnold as the starter. Josh McCown, 39, who didn't play in the past two preseason games, is expected to be the No. 2. He has not been intercepted, but also has not thrown a touchdown pass, and the Saints offense has moved the ball inconsistently with Savage under center. However, he has been intercepted twice and has lost two fumbles.
