Teddy Bridgewater meeting with Dolphins, report says


Bridgewater now will sign a one-year, $7.25 million fully guaranteed contract with the Saints, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to multiple reports, Bridgewater was set to visit the Dolphins' practice facility Wednesday afternoon. Bridgewater is also from Miami.

Miami is expected to release seven-year veteran Ryan Tannehill, who led the Dolphins to a 42-46 record as a starter since being drafted as their first-round pick in 2012.

Drew Brees #9 of the New Orleans Saints talks with Teddy Bridgewater during the game against the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on August 30, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bridgewater was drafted in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft by the Minnesota Vikings. After signing with the New York Jets and playing well in last year's preseason, he was traded to New Orleans. The Dolphins do need a starting quarterback, so it is possible Bridgewater could find himself as the lead signal-caller in Miami.

Teddy Bridgewater will remain with the New Orleans Saints as the team's backup quarterback, ESPN's Dianna Russini reported on Thursday.

Bridgewater is apparently willing to wait to find the flawless long-term fit, even though he has started just one game over the past three seasons.
