The New Orleans Saints have acquired Teddy Bridgewater from the New York Jets for a third round pick.

The Jets will start Sam Darnold in Week 1.

The Jets signed Bridgewater in the offseason and his play in the preseason made him one of the NFL's most tradable assets.

Drew Brees turn 40 in January and they didn't have a clear successor to him for when he retires. Bridgewater turns 26 in November.
