Bridgewater's signing comes a day after the Jets traded up to acquire the No. 3 overall pick in the National Football League draft from the Colts - likely with the intention of assuring themselves of getting one of the top available quarterbacks. The move from six to third cost the Jets picks six, 37 and 49 in 2018, plus their second-round pick in 2019. The Jets' decision to move into the top three signals the start of a quarterback arms race in the National Football League, as NY reportedly plans to use the No. 3 overall selection on a quarterback, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. That's a whole lot of draft capital. Based on other teams making dramatic trades to add franchise-caliber quarterbacks, this could be a real possibility. But McCarron, a career backup, feels like a bridge starter for the team, not a long-term solution, and this year's crop of quarterbacks is strong at the top.
Before the Jets trade, rumors of Buffalo's affinity for Josh Allen had been making its rounds throughout the interweb, but now with NY picking third, there's no guarantee the Wyoming product will be available.
Just two spots out of #10, the Bills could even get in between picks #5 and #10. As Bills GM Brandon Beane keeps pointing out this off-season, however, it takes two to do the trade-up dance.
We have Cleveland in the loser column here because another team forced its hand at No. 1. Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen all opted against staying in school and made themselves available to be drafted.

He came down the track and heaved a back of a length ball between deep midwicket and long-on for two runs off Shankar. Shardul, whose knuckle ball has been a hit was picked up by Sabbir in the next over for two cheeky boundaries.
It will be the fourth time that the two Big Apple football clubs have picked back-to-back high up in the draft. And it now looks like the draft itself will play out this way. Basically, the Jets gave up a second-round pick for each spot they moved up in the draft. "There's other guys that we didn't get that we looked into".
There's still a real chance four quarterbacks come off the board before the Bills are picking at 12, but after a rough weekend of news, this alternate scenario should help calm the nerves of some Bills fans.
The price to move up was different than the price some teams paid in last season's draft (generally a first round pick in the current draft, a future first rounder, and an additional day two pick), but just as expensive. Instead, that list likely includes guard Quenton Nelson, defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick and defensive end Bradley Chubb.
"We're still open. You know, we'll still be open if an opportunity - the right opportunity - presents itself at (No.) 6 to move down", Ballard told the team's website.
