Miami Dolphins Making "Late Push" For Teddy Bridewater

Teddy Bridgewater

Earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints reportedly re-signed backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater appeared to reference the anniversary of the Brees signing in a report shortly before the signing was reported. In the immediate aftermath of the news, his contract details remained mum. It's part of the reason why the signal caller met with the Miami Dolphins when it had previously been assumed he would return to the Saints.

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 Dolphins will need to up their ante on Bridgewater, whose visit comes on the same day free agent Tyrod Taylor rejected a similarly low offer from Miami.

After meeting with his hometown Miami Dolphins Wednesday (Mar. 13) night, Bridgewater chose to re-sign with the Saints, according to an ESPN report. Now they're making a push for Bridgewater. But he suffered a devastating knee injury during a practice before the following season and lost his starting job.

He saw limited action behind Drew Brees during the 2018 season. The Dolphins would give Bridgewater a chance to start immediately and potentially earn a much more lucrative contract in the near future.
