Teddy Bridgewater visiting Miami, reconsidering return to New Orleans

Teddy Bridgewater visiting Miami, reconsidering return to New Orleans

We could very well be seeing the beginning of the Teddy Era in Miami, less than a day after it seemed that path was closed.

According to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, a source close to Bridgewater indicated the quarterback is apprehensive about staying in New Orleans due to the ongoing rumors of head coach Sean Payton possibly leaving for the Dallas Cowboys job in 2020.

Bridgewater became the Saints' backup last season after being traded to New Orleans during training camp past year by the New York Jets, who drafted quarterback Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 National Football League draft.

The 40-year-old Brees had one of his best seasons in 2018, throwing for 3,992 yards, with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions, while completing a record 74.4% of his passes.

The Dolphins will likely release Tannehill with a June 1 designation in order to save $18.75 million in salary-cap space.

After coming back from a gruesome knee injury that almost derailed his career, the former first-round pick finally has a chance to break the bank.

A Miami native, Bridgewater was reportedly on Miami's shortlist at quarterback, but was heading back to New Orleans to continue backing up Drew Brees. After signing with the New York Jets and playing well in last year's preseason, he was traded to New Orleans.
