Analysis of Jets Free Agent Adds Johnson/Bridgewater Dan Leberfeld

In the last issue of the monthly Jets Confidential Magazine, we had an extensive free agency preview. Here is what we wrote about Jets free agent additions, CB Trumaine Johnson and QB Teddy Bridgewater . . .

Trumaine Johnson, Rams, 6-2. 213, 28

A jumbo CB with great ball skills; over six years in the league has 67 PD’s and 18 picks. In 2015, he had 7 picks and 17 PD’s, and actually missed two games. With his length and physicality, he’s great matchup against big receivers. He’s also a physical tackler. Had two legal issues – disorderly conduct (2011) and reckless driving (2013) which need to be looked into before doling out big money.

Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings 6-2, 215, 25

Severely damaged his left knee in August, 2016, and didn’t returned to the field until Week 15 of 2017. Due to the severity of the injury, the Vikings declined his fifth-year option. In 2014 was the first rookie quarterback to ever complete over 70% of his passes in four straight games. Tends to dink-and-dunk a lot, preferring safe options; needs some work on deep ball. Tremendous character and work ethic.
