After spending the last two seasons behind future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater is entering a new chapter of his career after testing free agency. On Tuesday, Carolina signed Bridgewater to a 3-year deal worth $60 Million.
Prior to signing with New Orleans, Teddy Bridgewater was the starting quarterback for Minnesota. While he showed promise within his first two seasons, Bridgewater tore his ACL in August of 2016 during a team practice. After spending a brief amount of time with the New York Jets, the Saints received the 27-year old in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
During Brees’ absence in the 2019 season, Bridgewater posted a 5-0 quarterback record. His statistics included 1,384 passing yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions. His most notable win came in Week 3, as New Orleans managed to beat the Seattle Seahawks 33-27 on the road.
