Teddy Bridgewater, Carolina Panthers
Teddy Bridgewater was only with the Saints for two years. In those seasons, he was the main backup for Drew Brees. He didn’t play much at all in his first season, but in the second one, he ended up starting five games for the team.
He went 5-0 in those games.
That led him to be ready to start in the NFL. After the Saints decided that they wanted to keep Brees instead of starting Bridgewater, they let him leave in free agency. The Carolina Panthers signed him after letting Cam Newton go.
In Week 4, Bridgewater threw for 276 yards (second-most this season) and two touchdowns. He did throw an interception which was the only downfall of the game. However, he also ran for 32 yards and a touchdown.
The New Orleans Saints produce talent — it is just a fact. This is proof that even the players that move on from the Saints find success. The Saints look to find more success themselves in Week 5 hosting the Los Angeles Chargers.
