Trey Flowers Jersey White

Jets trade Teddy Bridgewater to Saints; Lions to face Sam Darnold Week 1 It’s been a busy day for NFL quarterback news. First the Green Bay Packers sent backup quarterback Brett Hundley to Seattle for a sixth-round pick. Then the Packers took care of Aaron Rodgers Jake Rudock Jersey , signing him to a record-breaking four-year extension. Now another backup quarterback is on the move.As first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets are trading Teddy Bridgewater to the New Orleans Saints.Trade terms have yet to be announced, but the relevant news here to Detroit Lions fans is that it appears the Jets will be starting rookie Sam Darnold for Week 1 when the visit Detroit on “Monday Night Football.”UPDATE: The Jets received a third-round pick for Bridgewater, according to Ian Rapoport.Technically, Josh McCown is listed as the team’s first-string quarterback, but Darnold has started the past two preseason games, including the team’s dress rehearsal. The rookie passer has looked fairly solid Matt Prater Jersey White , going 29-45 for 244 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.Meanwhile, McCown only played in the first preseason game and threw a single pass for four yards.As of Tuesday, Jets head coach Todd Bowles would not commit to a Week 1 starter. “Sitting down with the coaches, we’ll go over everything and everybody will give their opinion,” Bowles told MMQB’s Albert Breer. “We just haven’t talked about it, and we won’t until after the last preseason game. We’ll sit down as a staff and we’ll go over every position Trey Flowers Jersey White , including that one, and we’ll come out with our guys.”It’ll be interesting to see how the Jets utilize their quarterbacks in the final preseason game against the Eagles. As of now, they only have Darnold and McCown on the roster. We’ll see how Bowles plays it and if he’ll make up his mind about Week 1’s starter soon. UPDATE 2: Ian Rapoport is reporting Darnold will indeed start vs. the Lions. After nearly a full 24 hours of hype, the Detroit Lions finally announced that they have traded for Giants defensive tackle Damon Harrison Sr. Though they did not confirm the trade terms, it is believed that the report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter is accurate; It only cost the Lions a fifth-round pick to acquire the All Pro talent. There’s a good chance Harrison is already in Detroit and could practice on Thursday, giving him an opportunity to play in this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. That would be very fortunate timing for the Lions’ struggling run defense, as the Seahawks run the ball at a higher percentage of plays than anyone else in the league. The Lions currently rank 32nd in yards per carry allowed , 30th in rushing yards allowed and rank 30th in run defense DVOA. To make room for “Snacks,” the Lions released defensive tackle Sylvester Williams. The Lions signed Williams to a significant one-year, $3.5 million contract this offseason. Unfortunately for Detroit, Williams didn’t seem to catch on and saw his role significantly decrease week by week. The Lions don’t clear out any cap room by releasing Williams, as his salary was fully guaranteed. Harrison will take over the spot left by Williams. The fact that the Lions released Williams is probably a good sign that they expect Harrison to play this week.
