Jets to re-sign QB Josh McCown, in talks with Teddy Bridgewater

After missing out on Kirk Cousins, the New York Jets addressed their gaping hole at quarterback Tuesday by bringing back Josh McCown, his agent announced via Twitter.

McCown, 38, is expected to sign a one-year, $10 million contract when free agency opens on Wednesday, a source said.
