The contracts can't officially sign with the Jets until the free-agency period begins on Wednesday at 4pm ET.

Later on Tuesday, the Jets agreed a deal with former Minnesota Vikings signal-caller Bridgewater, according to ESPN.

Teddy Bridgewater played in 30 games for the Minnesota Vikings after being a first-round draft pick in 2014.

Last season, the Jets were paced by the veteran signal caller McCown, who accounted for 2,926 yards and 18 touchdowns in contrast to nine interceptions. He entered Minnesota's Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals this past season, during which received a standing ovation, but Case Keenum already had solidified himself as the Vikings' starting quarterback by that point.

The Jets will likely look to select another quarterback during next month's NFL Draft.

Former Rams free-agent cornerback Johnson agreed to terms with the Jets on a deal that could be worth $15m per season.

Mourinho: Champions League Failure Is Nothing New
Even a last-ditch lunge from Eric Bailly - United's saviour on at least two occasions - could not save them this time. It was nearly like Jose Mourinho didn't care.

The Vikings have reportedly offered quarterback Kirk Cousins a three-year, $86 million deal.

The Jets needed to find a quarterback pretty badly this year.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets.

He rushed for 3,118 yards and 21 touchdowns in four seasons with the Cleveland Browns.

At the same time, Bridgewater is still just 25-years old. He caught a career-best 40 passes in 2016. Running back Matt Forte also recently announced his retirement. Williamson is four-years younger than Davis and came in much lower than Davis' reported asking price of $9-10 million per year. Bridgewater also could maximize his value if he were to play well and is a free agent again next year, allowing him to seek out a far bigger deal. He will team up with Darron Lee in the middle of Todd Bowles' defense.
