For the third straight day, Jets quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown split the reps evenly in 11-on-11 and seven-on-seven play, and, on the first day of hitting, both quarterbacks started slowly. Both got better later. Unofficially, McCown was 7-for-12, with two touchdown passes and one “sack’’ in 11-on-11 action. He had one throwaway. He was 6-for-6 in seven-on-sevens. Bridgewater was awful in seven-on-sevens—1-for-4 with a pick-six by cornerback Derrick Jones. But Bridgewater was better in the 11-on-11s, going 13-for-18 (one throwaway) with two TDs, including the play of the day on the final play of practice, when he threw a ball to the back corner of the end zone and it was grabbed by a diving Tre McBride, who had a man on him.

Darnold continues to be a no-show at camp which leaves all the work for Bridgewater and McCown. Of course, Bridgewater is coming off a major knee injury and McCown is 39. The holdup for Darnold is apparently "offset" language in his contract.
