NFL News & Notes: Multiple teams interested in trading Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater could have a few trade options as rumours say multiple teams are interested in trading for him.


General manager Scott Fitterer stated his next logical question: What's next for Teddy Bridgewater?


Currently, his contract pays him a $17 million base salary, and $10 million is 100% guaranteed, and ultimately, this is going to be a difficult one for most NFL teams to match, so he'll more than likely need to take a pay cut to get the deal done.


Theodore Edmond Bridgewater Jr. known as Teddy, has spent most of his quarterback 2020 season with the Carolina's, where he finished with a 4-11 record. 


His days with the Vikings were pretty impressive; Bridgewater threw for 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons, including winning the NFC North and making a Pro Bowl appearance in 2015. 


Unlike his Vikings days, it was a disappointing season following Bridgewater's previous success in New Orleans; in his second season with the Saints, Bridgewater went 5-0 as their starter while Drew Brees nursed an injury. 


The new teams on the cards are New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New England Patriots. 


All of these potential destinations would be an excellent fit for Bridgewater as he hasn't found a secure home in the NFL just yet. 


Teams such as Denver and San Francisco could consider Bridgewater as competition for a young quarterback or a bridge until they find a franchise passer; these two teams seem to provide the best option for playing time. 


Bridgewater is in a perfect position in his career and has the opportunity to talk with teams and chose a future destination in the coming weeks.
