The Saints and Jets engineered a trade Wednesday that sends the backup quarterback and a sixth-round pick in the 2019 National Football League draft to New Orleans in exchange for a third-round draft pick, per Albert Breer.

The Vikings will get a compensatory pick for Bridgewater.

The Saints had Tom Savage, Taysom Hill and J.T. Barrett behind 39-year-old Drew Brees, who signed a two-year contract extension this offseason that binds him to the team through 2019. His best case scenario was finding a backup role on a winning team with a quarterback approaching retirement age.

So instead of an epic naval and aerial clash, expect Russian Federation to stick to its real weapon fo modern war: Propaganda. This time, Russian Federation looks as if it's up to more than simply conducting a public-relations battle with the US.

Bridgewater returned this season after a horrific knee injury kept him off the field for almost two years.

Brees is now under contract through 2019 after signing a two-year extension worth a reported $50 million this offseason. Think of it this way: Aaron Rodgers didn't register his first double-digit win season until age 26.

Bridgewater signed with the New York Jets as a free agent and as he performed well throughout the season - demonstrating a comeback from a devasting knee injury suffered just before the 2016 season - speculation escalated about a potential new landing spot for him.

Both people, like others, spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to discuss private discussions. Trump has always maintained he knew nothing of the meeting beforehand.

And there's the added benefit of spending time around Brees.

According to Sports Illustrated's Michael Silver, the Saints will send a third round pick to the Jets in exchange for Bridgewater.

Bridgewater's journey from franchise quarterback to reclamation project saw another successful chapter this August.
