Teddy Bridgewater has made his decision.
Despite visiting the Dolphins on Wednesday night and discussing a chance to become their bridge quarterback, Bridgewater has decided to remain with the Saints as Drew Brees’ backup, according to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, who added that Bridgewater only would’ve left New Orleans for Miami for “life-changing money,” which isn’t what the Dolphins offered him.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Bridgewater is getting a one-year, $7.25 million deal that is fully guaranteed. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the contract carries a maximum value of $12.5 million.
ESPN’s report came moments after Bridgewater sent out two tweets that indicated he’d picked the Saints over the Dolphins. As many have noted, Brees signed with the Saints instead of the Dolphins in March 2006, which is what Bridgewater was likely referring to in his first tweet.
