  • Teddy Bridgewater will back up Drew Brees again in 2019

Teddy Bridgewater #5 of the New Orleans Saints throws a pass against the Carolina Panthers during the first half at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on December 30, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Bridgewater, who was an unrestricted free agent, was expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints after declining Miami's offer on Tuesday.

A source has told The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr. that Bridgewater is well aware that there's no guarantee Payton will still be in New Orleans after the upcoming season.


They are set to host tight end Jared Cook and are trying to bring back quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for a backup role. 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.

According to multiple reports, the Dolphins attempted to land Tyrod Taylor before he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Bridgewater hasn't gotten much of an opportunity since suffering a gruesome knee injury with the Vikings in 2016. If Brees never plays for the Saints again after the 2019 season, he will leave a salary cap hit of $21.3 million in dead money. Yet, with his future in New Orleans up in the air, Bridgewater is taking a visit to Miami.
