Saints, Teddy Bridgewater agree on one-year, $12.5M contract

Saints, Teddy Bridgewater agree on one-year, $12.5M contract

He and the Saints settled on a one-year, fully-guaranteed $7.25 million contract extension to keep him in town. Bridgewater also reportedly had a "bigger deal" on the table from Miami but chose to remain Drew Brees's backup since the offer was not "life-changing money".

The quarterback was in Miami visiting with the Dolphins on Wednesday, according to a report from the Boston Globe.

Miami intends to draft a future franchise quarterback in the 2019 or 2020 National Football League drafts, and hopes Bridgewater could bridge the gap.

The former first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings chose to stay with the New Orleans Saints, as he is considered as the favorite to become Drew Brees' successor. At the very least, you'd expect there to be a quarterback competition between Bridgewater and Ryan Tannehill, that is if the Dolphins don't cut Tannehill. He started 28 games in his first two seasons with the team, throwing 28 touchdowns to 22 interceptions.

A new Saints' coach might want to go in a different direction, perhaps deciding to draft a quarterback instead of handing the starting job over to a player that hasn't been a full-time starter since the 2015 season.

After being released by the Vikings following the 2017 season, Bridgewater joined the New York Jets in March 2018 on a one-year deal.
