  Saints | Teddy Bridgewater restructures    Fri Sep 7, 09:58 AM

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater restructured his deal Friday, Sept. 7, to create $2.71 million in salary cap space. He converted more than $4 million of his base salary into a signing bonus and added two voidable years to his deal.

Footballguys view: The voidable years don't create extra potential for Bridgewater to stay with the team, but they do spread out his cap hit.

  Saints | Too early for Teddy Bridgewater contract talks    Thu Aug 30, 07:49 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater was acquired by the Saints earlier this week, and general manager Mickey Loomis said it is too early to start contract extension talks with Bridgewater.

Footballguys view: The first move was to trade for Bridgewater, and the next move will be to convince him to stay. The veteran quarterback wants another chance to start, but he will have to wait for Drew Brees to hang up the cleats...and that may be too long. Bridgewater signed a one-year deal this offseason and will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason.

  Saints | New Orleans acquires draft pick    Thu Aug 30, 02:28 AM

Updating previous reports, the New Orleans Saints also acquired a 2019 sixth-round draft pick from the New York Jets in the deal for QB Teddy Bridgewater; the Saints parted with a 2019 third-round selection.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater dealt to New Orleans    Thu Aug 30, 02:25 AM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater was traded to the New Orleans Saints along with a 2019 sixth-round draft pick in exchange for a third-round selection in the 2019 draft.

Footballguys view: It's a win-win. The Saints now have a year to evaluate Bridgewater, a guy with the prime of his career potentially ahead of him, and then sign him long-term if they want. They also shore up their backup quarterback position, which the Eagles showed last season is a shrewd move. Meanwhile the Jets spend $1 million dollars and get a third round pick in return.

  Saints | More on Teddy Bridgewater deal    Wed Aug 29, 03:12 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater was acquired from the New York Jets in exchange for a third-round draft pick.

Footballguys view: That was the asking price according to rumors, and the Saints had no problem making that decision. Bridgewater will be the backup to Drew Brees in 2018. We'll see if they can sign him to an extension (he's on a one-year deal) and sell him on the idea that he could take over for Brees in the future.

  Saints | Teddy Bridgewater headed to Saints    Wed Aug 29, 02:43 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater was acquired by the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, Aug. 29, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets had been shopping Bridgewater for some time now and finally get a taker. With Sam Darnold set to start the regular season, the Jets didn't need Bridgewater to stick around as a backup. Josh McCown will work as the primary backup to Darnold in 2018.

  Jets | NYJ QB decision waiting on preseason finale    Tue Aug 28, 11:36 AM

New York Jets QBs Sam Darnold, Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater all are in the running to start in Week 1, and Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he likely will wait until after the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 30, to make the decision. 'Sitting down with the coaches, we'll go over everything and everybody will give their opinion,' Bowles said. 'We just haven't talked about it, and we won't until after the last preseason game. We'll sit down as a staff and we'll go over every position, including that one, and we'll come out with our guys.'

Footballguys view: The Jets have a good problem but it is a problem nonetheless. Darnold is the quarterback of the future and the 2018 first-round pick has the potential to be a franchise player. They might determine he's not yet ready. Bridgewater has played well this preseason and was/is on the trade block. No takers for Bridgewater just yet means the team might just begin the year with him as the starter. McCown is the safe 'in case of emergency' veteran who could start in a pinch.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater will cost a bundle    Tue Aug 21, 01:54 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater would have to command a 'significant deal' in order for the team to trade him, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is looking good this preseason and reports are coming out that indicate he's 'hellbent' on being a starter again. We're rooting for the guy, and any team that adds him must know that he's more than a veteran backup. We'll see if someone is willing to pay what sounds like an inflated price.

  Jets | NYJ receiving interest in Teddy Bridgewater    Mon Aug 20, 01:43 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater is receiving trade interest from at least two teams, but the Jets have not received any concrete trade offers at this time, according to source.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater has played well this preseason and the Jets only have him on a one-year deal. He could push for a starting job, but getting one of those at this point may prove to be difficult. Bridgewater may end up getting traded to a team in need of a quality backup.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater struggled on deeper passes    Fri Aug 17, 07:12 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater went 1-for-5 for 16 yards, one touchdown and one interception on passes that traveled at least 15 yards in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater never had a cannon for an arm, so his struggles here shouldn't be that much of a surprise. He is smart, accurate and can throw with anticipation. Bridgewater seems hellbent on being a starter again, and he may get that opportunity to begin the season with the Jets...or they could deal him to a team that needs a starter or quality backup before the start of the regular season.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater sharp Friday    Fri Aug 10, 09:43 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater completed seven of his eight pass attempts for 85 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in the preseason Friday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is likely being showcased for a trade. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this offseason, Bridgewater is fighting his way back from the horrific leg injury he suffered with the Vikings a couple of years ago. He looked more like the old Bridgewater against the Falcons. With Sam Darnold as the quarterback of the future and Josh McCown as the veteran backup, Bridgewater might get moved to a team in need of a quality backup. Keep an eye on a team like the Broncos here.

  Jets | All three Jets QBs to play Friday    Wed Aug 8, 07:41 PM

New York Jets QBs Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold will all receive playing time in the preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 9, according to head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: McCown doesn't need a ton of reps in the first preseason game. Bridgewater could use more time as he is trying to prove himself after that devastating knee injury that knocked him out of the Vikings starting lineup years ago. Darnold is the rookie and the quarterback of the future for the Jets, so he may get the most time.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater could be trade option    Wed Aug 8, 06:25 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater is a player the team would consider trading under the right circumstance, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater was signed to a one-year deal with the Jets this offseason. They selected QB Sam Darnold near the top of the 2018 NFL draft and he's clearly their quarterback of the future. Josh McCown is there for veteran experience so Bridgewater is expendable. We'll see if a team in need of a veteran backup (Denver?) comes calling later in the preseason.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater works with starters    Wed Aug 1, 04:39 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater saw some time with the starting offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1, including work in the two-minute offense.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is competing for the starting job with the Jets, so working with the 1s is not a big deal. We'll see if he can win the job for now or if the team ends up shipping him off to another team. Everyone knows that rookie Sam Darnold is the quarterback of the future for the Jets and Bridgewater is only on a one-year deal.

  Jets | Sam Darnold could be No. 3 QB    Sat Jun 9, 04:21 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold could serve as the No. 3 quarterback to begin the 2018 season if QB Teddy Bridgewater wins the starting job, in the opinion of ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: The Jets could take it slow with Darnold, who is clearly their QB of the future. The 20-year old from USC has the upside of a franchise quarterback but he's got plenty to work on before he gets there. Bridgewater could be the starter for the Jets, and Josh McCown could back him up until Darnold is deemed ready.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater standing out    Tue May 29, 04:07 AM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has 'generated a legitimate buzz' thus far in OTAs, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater signed a one-year 'prove it' deal with the Jets this offseason. Reports indicate he performed well in the first practice and maintained that high level of play throughout the week. In addition, Bridgewater has impressed his new teammates with his 'football acumen and mental toughness.'

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater could be Week 1 starter    Thu May 24, 03:15 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater will be considered for the starting quarterback job Week 1 if he plays well during the preseason and QB Sam Darnold shows he is not ready to play, according to sources. QB Josh McCown likely would be the starter if Bridgewater and Darnold struggle during the preseason.

Footballguys view: Neither outcome is shocking to anyone who has paid attention to the Jets this offseason. We are a little excited to see what Bridgewater is capable of after such a long layoff, but the lack of good and reliable weapons around him limit his upside. McCown would be the same middling quarterback he's always been and not really worth rostering.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater suits up    Tue May 22, 11:17 AM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 22.

Footballguys view: Good news for Bridgewater, but he's still recovering from his knee injury and should be limited in any practice participation. He signed a one-year deal with the Jets and is just trying to put some preseason tape out there to show other teams he can get back to his starter-level of play. Josh McCown may begin the year for the Jets as the starter, but it's clear rookie Sam Darnold is the QB of the future.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater expected to be limited    Mon May 21, 12:39 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) likely will be limited during organized team activities, but he is further along in his recovery than most people believe, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Jets will be cautious with Bridgewater as he continues to recover from his knee injury. Signed to a one-year deal earlier this offseason, Bridgewater is no long-term solution for the Jets (that's rookie Sam Darnold). He's just trying to get healthy and show he can still play in the pros. The team is hoping that Bridgewater will be a full participant when training camp starts.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater expected on field soon    Sat May 5, 03:26 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is expected to be on the field for offseason workouts in a few weeks, according head coach Todd Bowles.

Footballguys view: Good news for Bridgewater as he's trying to impress his new team. Bridgewater is only on a one-year deal, and the Jets selected QB Sam Darnold with the no.3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The writing is on the wall that he's no long-term answer for the Jets. However, Bridgewater could be dealt to another team in need of a starting-caliber QB...or he could just hit the open market ready to prove himself in 2019.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater throwing    Tue May 1, 06:30 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is healthy and was throwing during phase 2 of the Jets' offseason program Tuesday, May 1, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater signed a one-year deal with the Jets, and with the selection of Sam Darnold in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft we know Bridgewater is no long-term solution in New York. Perhaps there will be an injury in training camp, giving the opportunity for Bridgewater to be traded somewhere he can play. Josh McCown should begin the season and if/when he gets hurt we should see Darnold as the Jets starter as he is their QB of the future.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater may not make team    Tue Apr 24, 05:12 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is not a lock to make the Jets' final roster if he doesn't show he can stay healthy, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater only signed a one-year deal with the Jets. The former first-round pick is no lock for the final roster with the Jets, especially since they're likely to select a franchise quarterback with the No.3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater should throw this spring    Mon Apr 16, 07:34 AM

New York Jets coach Todd Bowles believes QB Teddy Bridgewater should throw at some point this spring, but it is hard to tell how much he will take part in offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: The Jets have no need to push Bridgewater as he continues to recover from his knee injury. He signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Jets earlier this offseason and Bridgewater should be in the mix as a reserve quarterback. Josh McCown is set to start but we should see the Jets select a quarterback (Baker Mayfield?) at no.3 overall.

  Jets | No offseason workouts for Teddy Bridgewater?    Tue Mar 27, 12:26 AM

Updating a previous report, New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan cast some doubt over QB Teddy Bridgewater's (knee) readiness to participate in offseason workouts, saying 'we'll see how he progresses.' He added, 'There's things we're doing with him to set him up for success. If all things go well, you guys will have a chance to see him out there to throw this spring.'

Footballguys view: The Jets have Josh McCown as their starter to begin the season, so there's no rush for Bridgewater. Signed to a one-year deal, Bridgewater may not be in their plans past this season. Expect the Jets to select a QB with the no.3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater should practice    Mon Mar 26, 03:13 PM

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is expected to be able to participate in practice this spring, according to general manager Mike Maccagnan.

Footballguys view: Good news for Bridgewater. He's set to be a backup behind Josh McCown but he could get a chance to start...unless the Jets take a rookie QB with the no3 overall pick. That's likely to happen, so Bridgewater is just going to take any sort of shot he can get.

New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will not say if he will be healthy enough to participate in offseason workouts.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater contract update    Mon Mar 19, 02:04 PM

Updating previous reports, New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater is scheduled to receive a $5 million base salary in 2018 with a $500,000 signing bonus and a $500,000 workout bonus. He can make an additional $9 million in incentives.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is getting a fresh start with the Jets...but he's set to be the backup to Josh McCown at this time. Add in a rookie QB with the no3 overall pick, and Bridgewater all of a sudden doesn't look like more than a flier for the Jets. If healthy, Bridgewater is smart, accurate and more than capable as a starter.

  Jets | NY Jets officially sign Teddy Bridgewater    Sun Mar 18, 03:27 PM

Updating a previous report, the New York Jets signed free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings) on Sunday, March 18.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater still has first-round tools and is smart and accurate as a passer. If he can stay healthy after a devastating knee injury almost two years ago, the Jets could have a value play here as a reclamation project. Bridgewater should serve as a backup to Josh McCown in 2018. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed, but it was reported earlier Bridgewater agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $15 million.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater passes physical    Sun Mar 18, 12:14 PM

The New York Jets have yet to formally sign free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings), but a league source recently confirmed he passed his physical and they will officially announce the signing soon.

Footballguys view: Jets fans who love the idea of Bridgewater getting his career back on track in New York can breathe a sigh of relief here. There was some concern his surgically repaired knee may be holding up the deal. Bridgewater will begin as a backup to Josh McCown in 2018. We expect the Jets, now up at no3 overall, to select a QB in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft as well.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater set to join NY Jets    Tue Mar 13, 08:14 PM

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater has agreed to terms on an undisclosed one-year contract with the New York Jets, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater has basically missed two years after a devastating knee injury. The Jets re-signed Josh McCown to be their starter, but there should be a point where Bridgewater sees the field. A former first-round pick, Bridgewater is still smart and accurate. It would be a tremendous redemption story if he's able to play up to his potential.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater could land with Jets soon    Tue Mar 13, 03:09 PM

Free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings) is working on a deal with the New York Jets, according to a source.

Footballguys view: When the Jets missed out on Kirk Cousins (no surprise there), the team moved attention to Bridgewater. If he's healthy, Bridgewater could be a quality starter. If/when the Jets sign him, Bridgewater will have to back up newly re-signed Josh McCown.

  Jets | NYJ turning attention to Teddy Bridgewater?    Tue Mar 13, 12:53 PM

The New York Jets are expected to turn their attention to Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater should they not be able to land Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins, according to sources.

Footballguys view: If healthy, Bridgewater has the potential to be a franchise quarterback. Because of the devastating knee injury he suffered, Bridgewater should see a much lower price than other QBs.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater a Plan B option for NYJ?    Mon Mar 5, 10:12 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater may be the New York Jets' fallback option if Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins opts not to sign with the Jets in free agency, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, who speculates New York would also attempt to bring back Josh McCown to protect themselves against another injury to Bridgewater.

Footballguys view: This makes all the sense in the world for the Jets. If they miss on Kirk Cousins -- or if they just decide the price is too high -- Bridgewater would be a reasonably priced, high upside alternative. They could still draft a quarterback at No. 6 and develop him behind Bridgewater. If both players end up good, they have the nice problem of possessing two quarterbacks who teams might want, which you can turn into trade value.

  Jets | Teddy Bridgewater could be option for Jets    Mon Mar 5, 12:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater could receive interest from the New York Jets this offseason if the Jets are not able to sign Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There are a few teams that consider Bridgewater a starting quarterback. If his knee injury is fine, Bridgewater can be a starter in the league and likely a cheaper option than guys like Kirk Cousins or Case Keenum.

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater is receiving interest from some teams that consider him a potential starting quarterback.

  Vikings | GM expects Teddy Bridgewater to be UFA    Wed Feb 28, 07:32 PM

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said he expects QB Teddy Bridgewater to be declared an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater likely to be set free    Tue Feb 27, 08:14 AM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater is expected to become a free agent, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is a bit of an unknown physically after his catastrophic knee injury. He should get a long look from teams that don't sign Kirk Cousins or Case Keenum, and he could still return to Minnesota if he finds that he isn't going to get a long-term commitment and starting job in the market.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater FA status unclear    Fri Feb 2, 01:47 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater could have his contract tolled, which would put him back under contract with the Vikings for 2018 at his salary rate ($1.354 million) from the past season as opposed to entering unrestricted free agency. The issue stems from Bridgewater spending the first six weeks of this past season on the PUP list and whether or not he was medically cleared at any point before those six weeks elapsed. GM Rick Spielman indicated the decision to have the contract tolled would come from the NFL and the NFLPA, and not from the Vikings.

Footballguys view: This could greatly change the complexion of the choice the Vikings have to make between three potential free agent quarterbacks. If Bridgewater is back at pennies on the dollar in this quarterback market, they could afford to sign one of Case Keenum and Sam Bradford to create a competition.

  Vikings | Mike Zimmer not sold on Case Keenum?    Tue Jan 23, 03:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum's future with the Vikings is in limbo. Head coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings will go through the process of determining who their starting quarterback will be next season. Keenum and fellow QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are all in the running.

Footballguys view: Reports before the NFC Championship Game indicated the Vikings were going to franchise tag Keenum and also try to keep Bridgewater around. Now, after losing in that game, things don't seem as certain for Keenum...even Peter King is speculating that Keenum will be the Broncos starter in Week 1 of the 2018 season.

  Vikings | Minnesota tempted to start Teddy Bridgewater    Wed Nov 15, 02:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was reportedly very close to overtaking Case Keenum for the starting job in large part because the Vikings view Bridgewater as 'their franchise,' according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Footballguys view: Now that Bridgewater is healthy enough to play, Keenum has to be on a short leash with the Vikings. They've been winning with Keenum, but he's also thrown some interceptions along the way. So long as they keep winning, Bridgewater is likely staying as a reserve but any sort of slip and we could see him at the top of the depth chart.

Footballguys view: It would be great if Bridgewater can get back in the starting lineup and thrive with the Vikings. He's back this week, but it will be as a reserve behind Case Keenum. We'd have to see the Vikings struggle with Keenum as the starter before Bridgewater would get that top spot.
