This Wednesday has been full of NFL breaking news. The next item hitting the airwaves is the New Orleans Saints reportedly trading the New York Jets for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Bridgewater has had a great preseason, and as such, the Jets previously said they would be open to trading him.
Now that the trade is in the works, the Twitter world is lit with various reactions.
#Saints are sending a 3rd round pick to the #Jets in exchange for QB Teddy Bridgewater, per @MikeSilver. NYJ got what they want and New Orleans now has a legitimate backup and potentially their heir apparent to Drew Brees.

This is a great spot for Bridgewater. When Bress retires, Teddy would be given the keys to a team with a very solid supporting cast. https://t.co/hyXtPJ7LP6

Backup quarterbacks are going fast. Brett Hundley and Teddy Bridgewater both traded today. Let's see if the Raiders make a move or stick with Cook and Manuel #Raiders
