Miami Dolphins Making "Late Push" For Teddy Bridewater

He'll receive a one-year deal worth a fully guaranteed $7.25 million and a maximum value of $12.5 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The Dolphins do need a starting quarterback, so it is possible Bridgewater could find himself as the lead signal-caller in Miami.

The Miami Dolphins had a last-second shot to land Teddy Bridgewater and failed.

He saw limited action behind Drew Brees during the 2018 season.

Bridgewater, 26, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft.

Ex-Liverpool star Nicol told ESPN FC: "I would love to say that Liverpool came and were just too clever and sat in a great spot". Former Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson has lauded Virgil van Dijk , stating the Dutchman can put world-class strikers to sleep.


Big things were expected of Bridgewater during his third season, but a gruesome leg injury - in which he nearly lost his leg - caused him to miss the entire 2016 season.

The Dolphins will likely release Tannehill with a June 1 designation in order to save $18.75 million in salary-cap space. Bridgewater is also from Miami. He went 17-11 in two seasons as the Minnesota Vikings' starter before a broken leg changed the course of his career. But he ultimately made a decision to stay put in New Orleans, where he spent last season after the Saints traded a third-round pick to acquire him and a sixth-rounder from the New York Jets.

Bridgewater also seemed to acknowledge the odd symmetry his return has with Brees' arrival in New Orleans.
