Former University of Louisville Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has signed with the Detroit Lions. Teddy is reuniting with Lions Head Coach Dan Campbell who was with the New Orleans Saints at the same time at Bridgewater.
Contract terms are not yet available, but Teddy is expected to be Jared Goff’s primary backup for the Lions.
Before this season begins Teddy has earned $62,059,985 in the NFL. Teddy was a Pro Bowler in 2015 in his 2nd season with the Vikings, he was the Pepsi Rookie of the Year in 2014. Bridgewater suffered a horrific leg injury prior to the 2016 season and fought his way back for the 2018 season where the Jets signed Teddy to a contract and traded him to the Saints during an eye-opening pre-season.
Bridgewater spent the 2018 and 2019 seasons with New Orleans and was the starting quarterback for the Panthers and Broncos in 2020 & 2021 before backing up Tua Tagovailoa in Miami last season.
