Summary

The Ron Rivera era is over in Carolina, and with it also comes the end of Cam Newton in Panther blue. The Matt Rhule regime signed veteran quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a two-year deal to be the leader of the new Panthers offense. Bridgewater is familiar with offensive coordinator, Joe Brady's offense from his time with the Saints. His knowledge of Brady's offense should make it easier for him to adjust to his new team. Carolina is getting an accurate, intelligent passer who is hungry to prove his worth. It's not far off to suggest that Bridgewater will be a better decision maker on offense than what Cam Newton, and recently, Kyle Allen, brought to the table. He is arguably better in the pocket, especially making proper reads, including while under duress. The 2020 season will be a chance for Bridgewater to thrive in a well-planned and potent offense with a series of playmakers who can make an impact. Bridgewater was a promising, emerging talent in the league before a freak, but serious knee injury in offseason practice in 2016 derailed his career for nearly two seasons. He has since recovered from his injury, but he has struggled to find a niche in the league where he can rebuild his career to the heights he envisioned as a promising young quarterback. He spent time with the Jets and most recently, the Saints trying to jump-start his career, but he was never given the starting role that he once had. He had an opportunity to shine last season with New Orleans when Drew Brees went down with a mid-season knee injury. In place of Brees, Bridgewater led the Saints to five straight wins. In the offseason, Carolina handpicked him to quarterback their team under Matt Rhule. The confidence that was built in New Orleans, along with understanding Brady's offense, plus having Carolina's talented weapons at his disposal, may be the ingredients needed to resurrect his career.
