New Orleans Saints: Teddy Bridgewater sends emotional message to “the young boy”
Who knows where New Orleans Saints’ Teddy Bridgewater’s future may be, but we do know that he’s not forgetting where he came from.
Teddy Bridgewater is set for a big payday, and it seems likely that at one point in his life that seemed impossible. Whether with the New Orleans Saints or not, Bridgewater will be looking at an eight-figure contract.
Undefeated in 2019, Bridgewater stepped in for an injured Drew Brees and calmed Saints’ fans who were nervous after their future Hall of Famer quarterback was told he’d be sidelined for over a month.
He did more than just thrive; he proved yet again that he could easily be a franchise quarterback.
Well, now with a payday headed his way in just over a month, Bridgewater took a second to look back at where he came. With a post aimed at “the young boy,” Bridgewater showed his support, his love and his emotion for those not dealt the best hand of cards.
Here’s exactly what Bridgewater posted.
Having been targeted by the Miami Dolphins this past offseason, the new free agency period, which starts on March 18, could hold similar opportunities. However, this time, it’s likely he sees a few from competent organizations.
The Panthers and Buccaneers, if you consider those two competent, will both be needing a new quarterback. While Teddy may not be the answer in a somewhat deep draft class, his addition could easily make a team like Carolina an instant contender.
His leadership and spirit are just a complement to his play. Having been to a Pro Bowl earlier in his career, Bridgewater clearly has the ability to lead a team, having led the Vikings to a double-digit win season before almost seeing his career ended by injuries.
In his five starts in 2019, Bridgewater threw nine touchdowns with just two interceptions. With just over a 65% career completion percentage, Bridgewater will be capable of big things either in the Big Easy or elsewhere.
