Jets’ Teddy Bridgewater surprisingly taking part in OTAs

Even after signing Teddy Bridgewater to an inventive-laden contract earlier this offseason, there were some worries around the New York Jets’ camp that the quarterback wouldn’t be involved in offseason activities.

That’s not the case.

As the Jets continued their offseason program with organized team activities on Tuesday, Bridgewater himself was a near full participant.

Having played just a handful of snaps since suffering a terrible knee injury with the Minnesota Vikings back in August of 2016, Bridgewater also looks injury free out on the field.

While we shouldn’t read too much into it, Bridgewater was the second quarterback to take part in position specific drills. Assumed starter Josh McCown took “first-team” reps. Meanwhile, rookie top-five pick Sam Darnold was the third quarterbak on the field.

We’ve seen speculation recently that Bridgewater is not guaranteed a roster spot with the Jets. If Tuesday is any indication, (it probably isn’t) the Jets think he’s more than capable of at least being No. 2 on the depth chart.
