The New York Jets ushered in the Sam Darnold era, trading away Teddy Bridgewater to the New Orleans Saints for a third-round pick. Some fans think the Jets made the right move to trade Bridgewater, trading him away when his value is at its highest and getting an asset that could be used to trade for another player. Others think the Saints got the better end of the deal. Drew Brees isn't going to play forever and having Bridgewater waiting in the wings is a shrewd move. What do you think? 🏈

The Jets traded Teddy Bridgewater and a sixth-round draft pick for the Saints' third-round pick. Who got the better deal?

Bridgewater may have been the more experienced quarterback, in comparison to a rookie, but everyone knew this team was going to be Darnold's to run eventually. After looking good all preseason, Bridgewater's value was high and the team got a great opportunity to find a potential impact player in the draft—or package the pick for another starter. The Jets won this trade.

Drew Brees finished 2017 with his lowest attempts and passing yards since 2009. He also finished with his lowest touchdown output since 2003. He's not going to be around much longer and the Saints got a great piece to replace him. Bridgewater already proved he could take a team to playoffs and the team doesn't have to start from square one once Brees retires. The Saints came away with the better end of the deal.
