The free-agent quarterback was courted by the Miami Dolphins and reportedly visited the AFC East team Wednesday but ultimately opted to return to New Orleans as Drew Brees' potential successor. ESPN's Dianna Russini reported on air that Bridgewater is expected to join the Dolphins if the team adds a few million dollars to its offer.
That may not have been the case had Bridgewater signed in Miami.
This is tremendous news for New Orleans, even if it schedules them for further negotiations with Bridgewater in the 2020 offseason. Bridgewater would have at least competed for the starting role with Ryan Tannehill.
The Dolphins will likely release Tannehill with a June 1 designation in order to save $18.75 million in salary-cap space.Читайте также: Tesla Model Y: What We Know
Bridgewater also seemed to acknowledge the unusual symmetry his return has with Brees' arrival in New Orleans.
Bridgewater, 26, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft.
Taylor is expected to sign with the Los Angeles Chargers to be Phillip Rivers' backup, according to the NFL Network.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
