NEW YORK (AP) The New York Jets shook up the NFL draft on Saturday by soaring three spots to No. 3 overall in a stunning swap with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Jets acquired the third pick in a sure sign that they intend to get one of the top quarterbacks available. They sent the Colts their first-rounder - No. 6 overall - along with two second-rounders this year and a second-rounder next year to complete the massive deal.

After losing out to Minnesota in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes at the start of free agency, New York re-signed veteran Josh McCown and agreed to terms with Teddy Bridgewater, both on one-year deals. But it was believed the Jets would still focus on finding a quarterback of the future with their first-round pick.
