The Jets are trading the quarterback and a sixth-round draft pick to the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, citing an unidentified source.

Bridgewater, a former first-round pick who excelled in his first two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, missed all of 2016 and was limited in 2017 as he worked his way back from tearing his ACL and dislocating his knee in a non-contact injury sustained in practice.

By that time, Darnold will only be 21 years and 97 days old, younger than current record holder Drew Bledsoe was when he started for the New England Patriots in the team's 1993 season opener at the age of 21 years and 204 days old. "He's a successful quarterback and we know he will be a great addition to our quarterback room". "We look forward to working with him and watching him continue to develop as a player". Even if Bridgewater remained in NY, it hardly would've been a surprise if the Jets still went with Darnold as their starter anyway.

During his short stint with the Jets, Bridgewater endeared himself to teammates and coaches because of his humble approach and determination to sustain his comeback.

"Right now, I'm living in the now, taking advantage of this opportunity that I have right now", Bridgewater said Sunday when asked about trade chatter.

He has completed 23 of 31 passes (74.2 percent) for 232 yards. Josh McCown, 39, who didn't play in the past two preseason games, is expected to be the No. 2. He led the Saints in rushing in each of the first three preseason games, but he also committed four turnovers in the first half of the second exhibition game.

As a quarterback, he has demonstrated potential, if not reliability. However, he has been intercepted twice and has lost two fumbles.
