After a second successful showing with the New York Jets in preseason action, former Cardinal quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to be one of the more talked about players in the NFL.
Teddy has yet to play in a real game since suffering what was believed to be a potential career ending injury two years ago. With that said, he’s not playing like a quarterback that’s getting over a gruesome injury.
Against Washington, Bridgewater completed 10 of 15 passes for 127 yards, a touchdown, and an interception with a passer rating of 87.4. He led two scoring drives including a 4th quarter go-ahead scoring drive.
At least two teams have expressed interest in acquiring Bridgewater, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
No team has made an offer to the Jets but they have engaged in potential trade talks about the former Pro Bowl. The Dolphins, Jaguars, and Broncos have been linked as potential trade candidates for the Bridgewater. The Jets are looking for a package that includes a pick in the first four rounds Mehta reports.
The Jets’ front office is attempting to create a positive situation for Bridgewater by helping the quarterback get to an environment where he could succeed.
Through two games, he has completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 212 yards (9.2 YPA), two touchdowns, one interception and a 113.0 passer rating.

The Jets play their third preseason game against the New York Giants on Friday. Bridgewater will have another opportunity to increase his trade value around the NFL prior to the beginning of the NFL season.<
