With few options remaining in free agency, the Jets opted for the devil they know (Josh McCown), while still considering signing the one they don't (Teddy Bridgewater).

It was a wise move to bring back McCown on a one-year, $10 million deal.

The 2014 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year and erstwhile quarterback of the future in Minnesota, Bridgewater is free agency's quintessential wild card with just two pass attempts since suffering a career-threatening knee injury in August of 2016. He made a slight jump in 2015-16, accounting for 3,231 yards and 14 more touchdowns while chiseling his interceptions down to nine.

The Jets shifted their attention to McCown once it became apparent that Cousins is planning to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

But McCown returning for a second season does not sit well with some Jets fans, who had high hopes of making a more significant upgrade at quarterback.

McCown signed a one-year deal worth $6 million with the Jets last season, but has parlayed a strong 2017 performance into another - and bigger - deal with NY, as the veteran quarterback has just agreed to one-year, $10 million contract with the team. The Jets weren't expected to competitive in 2017-18 but played above expectations, albeit winning only five regular-season games and finishing in the cellar of the AFC East.
