NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Jets have signed former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a one-year contract.

The team made the signing official Sunday, a day after the Jets acquired the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft from the Indianapolis Colts -- likely with the intention of assuring themselves of getting one of the top available quarterbacks.

The Jets re-signed Josh McCown, who will likely head into the offseason programs as the starting quarterback, but the 25-year-old Bridgewater could give him -- and presumably whomever New York takes in the draft -- a run in training camp if healthy.
