- Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that if there’s a trade market for Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater, it’s going to be as a backup, given that there isn’t a team at this point in need of a starter.
- Rapoport says that Bridgewater is not going to the Jaguars, despite the recent speculation that they could be a landing spot.
- According to Rapoport, it would take a “significant deal” for the Jets trade Bridgewater right now, but they are open to trading him and have received calls.
- Rapoport isn’t sure the Jets would get a fourth- or fifth-round pick right now for Bridgewater, which means they could wait and collect a compensatory pick for him in 2019 that could come out to a late third-round pick.
“I am surprised. He has the skills to help a team,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t know what kind of shape Dez is in. Knowing Dez and how hard he works, I’ll bet he’s in really fine shape at this point to join an NFL team. It would not surprise me to see him joining a team at this juncture because these rosters are now getting made. We’re getting down to the roster-building time. … I think he’ll be on a team.”

“Well, you know what, and I said this a while ago, Colin had his chance to be here,” Elway said. “We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it.”
Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos mentioend during an appearance on the “Reasonable Doubt” podcast that Elway violated a gag order relating to the ongoing collusion case.
“Mr. Elway, clearly he violated the protective order that the NFL has been wielding like a club at me,” Geragos said, via Yahoo.com. “And he’s apparently suffering from some real brain trauma.”
According to Geragos, Kaepernick is in shape and ready to play if an opportunity surfaced.
“He works out like a banshee,” Geragos said. “I just saw him last week and physically he could not be in better shape. He’s in impressively good shape, ready to go at any moment.”
