Jets

Tom Pelissero spoke with some Vikings’ sources regarding the positive reports regarding QB Teddy Bridgewater coming out of Jets’ camp. According to Pelissero, the Vikings aren’t surprised to hear he’s looked good, given that he threw the ball well for them last year.

Earlier this offseason, Vikings HC Mike Zimmer seemed to indicate that medical reports regarding Bridgewater’s knee weren’t very good, but Pelissero explains that the issue for Minnesota was that he was still working his way back.

Pelissero considers Bridgewater to be a very tradable option for the Jets if they go that route later this summer.

Steelers

Trey Griffey, the son of MLB Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr, is trying to win a spot on the Steelers’ roster this summer and while it would have been easy for him to continue down the path of his father and grandfather, Ken Griffey Sr, he says that his father has always been very supportive of him playing football.

“Everybody has a love for something . . . and I have a love for football,” Trey told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Me and my dad talked about it and he said, ‘You have a love for football, and I could see that from a young age. I’ll always support you.’ He was never like, ‘You have to play baseball.’ He was a father, supporting his son with whatever choice I was making and leading me down the right path.”

“My dad always told me, ‘I want to be known as Trey Griffey’s dad. I had my time when I was playing.’ That’s something that, when you hear that from your dad, you’re like, ‘Wow.’ With his track record, all of the awards and going to the Hall of Fame, for him to say something like that is amazing,” Trey Griffey said.
