Teddy Bridgewater has re-signed with the New Orleans Saints, after meeting with the Miami Dolphins yesterday. The writing was on the wall when he left team headquarters without a contract.
The connection to DeVante Parker notwithstanding, Bridgewater is a local product and the Dolphins are believed to be one of the few teams with open auditions at QB.
Although you can hardly measure a person’s motivation, Teddy may have seen New Orleans as a more desirable long-term destination as opposed to a likely 1 year stop-gap in Miami (to then become the mentor for the Dolphins shiny QB investment). It’s only a matter of time before the Dolphins pull the trigger on a 1st round QB, perhaps as early as this year.
The only way Teddy Bridgewater was taking the job in Miami was if it was life-changing money and that is not what he was offered per source— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) March 14, 2019
The Dolphins chose to stick to their price point, and will now re-evaluate options. Ryan Tannehill remains under contract, Blake Bortles is available in free agency, as is my mom.
Do the Dolphins make a trade? Push their chips and draft someone? Ride with who they have? It’s wide open — what do you think? Let me know down in the Comments Section!
