A former NFL Draft first-round pick quarterback is reportedly being put on the trading block.

The New York Jets are reportedly open to trading 2014 first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater "for the right price," according to a report by the New York Daily News.

Bridgewater, 25, signed with the Jets this offseason.

New York has a couple of different options at quarterback this season. Most notably, the team drafted former star USC QB Sam Darnold with their top 2018 NFL Draft pick.

From the report:

There are too many variables to definitively know Bridgewater’s immediate future, but the Jets are amenable to moving the former Vikings quarterback in the right circumstance, according to sources.

The team will weigh the benefits of keeping a one-year rental versus acquiring an asset that could help them in the future (draft pick) or right now (player).

Bridgewater has dealt with serious injury and will likely need to prove in the preseason that he's capable of playing at a high level before an NFL team would make a trade for him.

Stay tuned.
