3. New York Jets

The most obvious landing spot for Bridgewater would be the New York Jets. Any quarterback that could be traded or free agent passer that could be signed is going to be connected to New York. The Jets, of course, lost Aaron Rodgers for the season right away in Week 1.

Now, it's on the shoulders of Zach Wilson to get it done, and to put it nicely, he's not getting it done. There have been whispers of the defensive unit growing tired and impatient with how poorly the offense has looked with Wilson under center, and it's apparent that Robert Saleh and his front office need to do something quickly.

Already, the team signed veteran Trevor Siemian, but how far will he really take them, and how much better is he than Wilson? This is a team with a Super Bowl on their mind. The defense is a top unit in all of football. Offensively, they have enough weapons if the right quarterback were to be in place.

Bridgewater could be the perfect fit, as he's a guy used to a system that uses multiple running backs and is fully capable of managing the game well. He's not someone who will lose games or be the reason things spiral out of control, like Wilson has the tendency to do. This just makes sense.
