Bridgewater’s tenure in New York came to an abrupt end on Wednesday afternoon when the Jets traded him to the New Orleans Saints. It’s a big deal for both teams — the Saints get a potential quarterback of the future for when Drew Brees retires, while the Jets now can give the reigns over to first-round pick Sam Darnold. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported that Bridgewater literally got let off the team bus when the news of the trade went down. Pelissero made it clear that the bus was waiting to leave wherever they were and didn’t pull off to the side of the highway and tell Bridgewater to call an UBER. But still, “having to get off the team bus because you just got traded” must be one of the oddest feelings in all of sports. – TO
