Bridgewater & 6th Rounder traded to Saints for a 3rd Rounder

Recommended Posts

Well I just came back to a nice surprise. 3rd rd pick is nice compensation and may help us in the trade market if we do go that route. 

I will be rooting for Teddy and think he ended up in a great place. If Brees still plays next year, I hope Teddy doesn’t leave the Saints but they are a cap disaster and I can’t see him staying there unless he knows he is the heir to Brees. 

 

NICE JOB MAC.

If we are getting a player thrown in, I'll take OLB Hau'oli Kikaha or one of the Saints many OTs.

I'd love Peak but don't see that happening

This is excellent news.  We knew Teddy wouldn't stick around, but still sucks to see him go.  He is a very likable player, and a very easy person to root for on his comeback trail.  But more importantly he seems like a better individual.  I'll be rooting for Teddy every chance I get once its his time to shine, as long as he isn't playing the green and white.

 

This is one of the few times I don't feel like a trade "robbed a team blind" on either side.  Very fair deal for both sides.  Also the fact he is out of the AFC is even better, because this guy was a stud before he went down, and is slowly getting back to his pre-injury form.

 

I commend mac on this trade.  Great ammo for the draft next year, or as we look for OL or Pass Rush help.

 

Lets go!

I think that Todd Bowles is terrified of losing his job and told Maccagnan that he was starting Bridgewater week 1. Maccagnan, not having control over who plays, probably said "lol ok, Todd" and traded Bridgewater. 

Wouldn't surprise me to see McCown week 1.

Macc just bought a 3rd round pick for $500k.

Nice

Cheaper than what Cleveland paid for a second last year (what was it, 16 mil?).  Plus, it gave Sam a chance to learn something from Bridgewater too, not just McCown and his hair.

This was brilliant by both teams.  Someone on reddit wrote this "Yeah, but as the replies are pointing out the Jets have a ton of money so they'll be picking up a fair number of free agents meaning they likely wouldn't get the comp pick. So they trade Bridgewater for a pick they probably wouldn't get, and the Saints traded the pick knowing that they might get a comp pick next year for him if he doesn't stick around."  

So the Saints basically got an excellent backup QB for the 2018 Season and traded back a few spots in the third if they don't end up signing TB long term.

WTF. It’s like this all happened because of the earlier conversation.

Exactly. We're talking about a guy who hasn't played in two years. 

 

Great pull for Macc. 

He has looked good but, let's face it, he remains a significant injury risk.  Good deal for both teams.  Good for Teddy if Brees retires any time soon.

We essentially hedged our QB situation with a good young player, and then took that hedge off for a big profit (3rd round pick for $500K).

Pretty much no way you can rip this move.

Many will. If one thing you can count on with Mac, he knows how to make trades.

Absolutely no room to complain here. 500K for a 3rd round pick? Done and done. 

Still no room to complain, but I think it was $1M.  Signing bonus, plus workout bonus.

He really might. My guess is McCown plays one or two series just to get some work in after missing the whole preseason then Wolford plays 3+ quarters.

I'm one of those who didn't think the Jets needed to trade Teddy this early and should have waited to see if a team had a major injury @ QB.

That being said, I can't knock Macc for this deal and how it played out. Sam is the future and now all assets need to be spent on building around him.

OK, what would you have gotten, genius GM?

Holdout for more and if a starter is injured you have more leverage, what was the rush. 

Genuis GM?  No just a fan how about you someone who likes to personally attack others for their opinion.

Flipped a player from the scrap heap into a 3rd round pick. Not bad.

Great landing spot for Teddy.

Yes, $1M for a third rounder ($500K signing bonus + $500k workout bonus). Really an outstanding move.

Great job by both teams. Being honest btw

No doubt. Saints either get a long-term replacement for Brees, or they get (potentially) a third round comp pick back in 2019 for Brees insurance in what they hope is a championship season.

Omar will be crushed.

I'm hoping he heads to a Saints board, starts bad-mouthing Brees, and stays there.

I take that back it was not JoeWilly I am sorry for the confusion

I can see the horrible injury comment but he is way better then you are given him credit for. He is a winning qb in the nfl. If we had him and did not draft Sampeople here would be wanting to sign him to an extension already

Winning qb? He had one playoff appearance and got eliminated the first game a career scrub Keenum took the same team almost to the Super Bowl.  Teddy was basically on his way to becoming an Alex Smith clone before his leg almost fell off

it was philc

well according to JoeWilly Teddy sucks. I am thinking JoeWilly is bipolar

Show me proof where I ever said Teddy Bridgewater sucks. 

Put up or shut up. 

Me saying he's worth more than a 3rd should be a clue to you obviously not.

If you took that as a personal attack you need to toughen up. 

There is a very specific and simple reason you trade him before the season. You don't want him on the bench for fans to clamor for if Darnold struggles. 

The Jets just made it clear they are in full on develop Darnold mode for 2018.

I agree it’s not “Genius” but it’s at least acceptable for trading him early considering he’s only a 1 year rental wherever he goes. 

Earlier on I was speculating that they may move him early if roster spots are truly and issue and if we keep 5 safeties or go deep at RB/TE, that final spot will become a problem.

Great news Sam Darnold all the way he is the franchise QB.
