Ben Volin reports that free agent QB Teddy Bridgewater is visiting the Dolphins at their training facility this afternoon.
According to Volin, reports of him re-signing with the Saints were “premature.”
Dianna Russini reports that the contract agreement between the Saints and QB Teddy Bridgewater is not official and the Dolphins are making a push to sign him.
Russini says that the Saints feel like they’ll get a deal done with Bridgewater, but the Dolphins are sign involved.
Jane Slater previously reported that the Bridgewater is expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints, despite a bigger deal on the table from the Dolphins.
According to Slater, Bridgewater values the locker room culture and the prospect of one day becoming the Saints starting quarterback.
However, the Dolphins can offer him a potential starting job, which is something he won’t have in New Orleans.
Bridgewater, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Vikings back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $6,849,502 rookie contract after Minnesota declined to pick up his fifth-year option.
Bridgewater signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Jets last year that includes just $500,000 guaranteed. However, the Jets later traded him to the Saints during the preseason.
In 2018, Bridgewater appeared in five games for the Saints and completed 14 of 23 pass attempts for 118 yards, one touchdown and an interception. He also rushed for five yards.
We had him featured in our Top 100 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.
