Dolphins emerging to fight Teddy Bridgewater away from Saints

Bridgewater impressed the Saints enough during his one season in New Orleans to attempt to re-sign him as Drew Brees' eventual successor.

The quarterback was in Miami visiting with the Dolphins on Wednesday, according to a report from the Boston Globe. Rumors that the team might be looking for New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton to replace current Cowboys' coach Jason Garrett in 2020 could reportedly keep Teddy Bridgewater from re-signing with the NFC South champions. He then posted a picture of himself in a Saints uniform with the text, "run it back turbo".

Bridgewater's deal will be worth $7.25 million, according to Adam Schefter.

His quality shined even more in contrast to Bayern's defensive pairing of Mats Hummels and Niklas Sule. Virgil Van Dijk is still in his first full season at the club but what a season it has been.

The Dallas Cowboys haven't signed any big free agents in the 2019 National Football League offseason, but they might be playing a major role in the decision of the best quarterback on the market. ESPN's Dianna Russini suggested the deal with the Saints isn't done just yet. The Dolphins do need a starting quarterback, so it is possible Bridgewater could find himself as the lead signal-caller in Miami.

Obviously, there's more of an opportunity for Bridgewater to start in Miami than in New Orleans. Tannehill is expected to be traded or released at some point.

Bridgewater hasn't gotten much of an opportunity since suffering a gruesome knee injury with the Vikings in 2016.
