News: Saints trade for Bridgewater; What about Taysom Hill and Barrett?

Smitty’s Take: The Saints have acquired QB Teddy Bridgewater and a 2019 sixth-round pick from the Jets in exchange for a 2019 third-round pick. This was a strange trade for the Saints, a team that has two of the most exciting back-up QBs in the league behind starter Drew Brees. Teams can ruin predictions, and while I won’t write off either Taysom or JT (especially if JT Barrett gets cut and another team grabs him), the trade makes a clear statement that the Saints don’t know who is the future of that passing attack. Coaching could prevent the rise of both Barrett and Taysom.
