Jets 53-man roster prediction 5.0 Offensive shakeups are coming

However, Bridgewater's tenure in NY came to an abrupt end on Wednesday afternoon when the Jets traded him to the New Orleans Saints. However, before the start of the 2016 season, Bridgewater suffered a debilitating knee injury that kept him out of football for over a year.

The Saints have their sights set on Super Bowl contention after coming within one play of reaching the NFC title game last season.

Although he faced an uphill battle to claim a starting job, Bridgewater flashed the potential that made Vikings general manager Rick Spielman trade up and select him with the 32nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. While Bridgewater was healthy enough to be on the Vikings roster a year ago, the consistent play of Case Keenum kept the former first round pick on the sidelines.

The business climate index is seen rising to 101.8 in August from 101.7 a month ago. The companies were once again more satisfied with their current business situation.

The Jets, meanwhile, get a second-day draft pick for a quarterback they only paid $1 million to ($500,000 in signing bonus and another $500,000 in a workout bonus).

During his short stint with the Jets, Bridgewater endeared himself to teammates and coaches because of his humble approach and determination to sustain his comeback. But with his departure, Darnold's status as the likely starter looks all but assured. Tom Savage and Taysom Hill had been competing for that role in the preseason. He threw two touchdown passes in the preseason. He also has rushed 16 times for 130 yards and two TDs.
