Latest On Saints’ Offer To Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater will reportedly meet with the Dolphins today, but he has a firm offer in hand. The Saints are willing to pay him a base value of around $7MM, tweets Mike Garafolo of NFL.com.

With the Saints, Bridgewater would serve as the backup for and heir apparent to Drew Brees. However, the Dolphins have a starting job available and Bridgewater is from Miami. There’s reason to believe that Bridgewater would be interested, but there’s no word yet on whether he would entertain the idea of leaving the Saints.

Meanwhile, if Bridgewater does depart for Miami, the Saints will likely be interested in the man he’s replacing. New Orleans is expected to target Ryan Tannehill as Brees’ backup if Bridgewater leaves, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link). There’s a connection in place for Tannehill, as he was originally drafted by now-Saints assistant general manager Jeff Ireland.

    Sign and trade? Doubtful because I doubt the Saints will pay Tannehill what he’s making now to backup Brees.

    Offer him a 2 or 3 year deal. He’s guaranteed to start this year, highly probable he would start next year even if the Dolphins choose a QB with their first pick. If Bridgewater plays well this year, you’re not desperate to start a rookie next year and then play it by ear after that. At worst, he’s a quality backup or you cut him……
