/Associated PressBridgewater had suitors in free agency Babe Ruth Jersey , but the Jets presented a chance to start with a rookie coming in.聽Throughout summer workouts and camp, reports have been positive enough that there's now talk Bridgewater might be a trade piece.So, will the Jets trade him? A Jets source told me Bridgewater has a chance to start for them this season. Keeping Bridgewater is cheap鈥攈e's set to make around $6 million this season鈥攁nd he is the perfect stopgap quarterback who can take the field until Darnold is ready.Trading Bridgewater makes sense because he's cheap for a new team to squeeze under the salary cap, but he also has to prove he's healthy.Who could be looking to add a quarterback like Bridgewater?The obvious answer is any team that has a starting quarterback suffer an injury in training camp or the preseason. That's what happened to Bridgewater and could unfortunately happen to another team. If Russell Wilson pops an ACL in the preseason, the Seahawks could trade for Bridgewater and not ruin their short-term salary cap. The same goes for any other NFC team鈥攋ust don't expect the Jets to help anyone in the AFC should this happen.Once you eliminate AFC teams and without being able to predict injuries, two teams stand out as possibilities.Could Bridgewater be an eventual heir apparent to Drew Brees in New Orleans?Jonathan Bachman/Associated PressThe New Orleans Saints are starting a 39-year-old Drew Brees and still don't have a long-term plan in place for life after him when his contract expires after the 2019 season. Bringing Bridgewater in on a cheap one-year deal to acclimate him to the offense and be set up for the future is the kind of smart move the Saints have been making recently.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without starting quarterback Jameis Winston for the first three games of the season after the NFL suspended him for off-field conduct. Winston hasn't exactly lit up the NFL since being the first overall pick in the 2015 draft.聽Bridgewater could start the first three games and provide competition for Winston, which might be what the former Florida State star needs to reach his potential.Trading for a quarterback in the preseason rarely results in an immediate impact Authentic Kolton Miller Jersey , but Bridgewater's high football IQ and versatile style of play make him a fit in any offensive system. He proved in his two years starting for the Vikings that the mental side of the game is his strong suit. If he can prove himself healthy throughout training camp and the preseason, a starting job is likely for Bridgewater either in New York or elsewhere.聽 聽 聽 聽Matt Miller聽covers the NFL and NFL draft for Bleacher Report.
