The Jets are also reportedly close to reaching a deal with free-agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and there is reason to believe NY is also considering drafting a signal-caller with the sixth overall pick.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Minnesota Vikings are "in the driver's seat" for Cousins' signature and have offered him a three-year, $84 million deal.

The New York Jets have roughly $90 million in cap space, the most in the National Football League, although they've been quiet throughout the first 24 hours of free agency. That shatters the average annual value of $28 million the Vikings are offering. The Jets, meanwhile, went 5-11 in both of those seasons. Josh McCown will be back in this scenario, as the Jets are fully expected, at least by myself, to draft a rookie quarterback.

So what do the Jets do now?

The former 1st round pick by the Minnesota Vikings out of the University of Louisville, Bridgewater, will likely join the Jets.

Look for center Jack Salt and forwards Isaiah Wilkins and Mamadi Diakite to absorb most of Hunter's playing time. He scored his season-high 23 points November 19 in U.Va.'s 73-53 win against Monmouth.

Instead, Bridgewater could only sit on the sidelines as Keenum led the Vikings to a game of Super Bowl LII.

Bridgewater is a high character player who has played well at times and may very well become the team's QB of the future, but until he proves he can be that guy, Maccagnan still has to secure a quarterback with the 6th pick (or higher) come draft day.

With Bridgewater still not cleared for game action, Case Keenum stepped into the starting role and thrived, throwing for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while completing 67.6 percent of his passes.

So while Bridgewater is a step in the right direction, his presence simply means the Jets have a competent young quarterback on the roster, which is refreshing, but not one that allows Maccagnan to look elsewhere with the sixth pick. While he could still be brought back as a veteran mentor, it seems unlikely if they sign Bridgewater.

But all the dominoes will start falling once Cousins puts pen to paper.
