Good for Teddy. Great move by the Saints. 

I like Zimmer, but not a big fan of him talking about health of a guy who is on a different team now. It's sort of poor form, and probably violating some type of medical privacy. 

He is kind of in no man's land...a little too good to be a career backup but not good enough to be a legit starter...going forward Bridge will not be just part of his name.

I’m confused. Just got an email from @Joe Bryant saying Teddy is OUT, but Rotoworld says he’s active. 
 

Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is active for Week 11 against the Lions.


 

my opponent has Teddy, so kinda hoping Joe’s correct & my opponent reads Rotoworld. :lol:

Teddy Bridgewater (knee) practiced in full Wednesday.

Coach Matt Rhule expects Bridgewater to be out there against the Vikings, who made him a first-round pick back in 2014. This will be Bridgewater's first start against his former team.

Teddy Bridgewater completed 19-of-36 passes for 267 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Panthers' Week 12 loss to the Vikings.

Bridgewater had a very forgettable day as a passer. He should've had D.J. Moore for a long touchdown and then missed him again for an easy red zone touchdown late in the game. Bridgewater is a fine starting quarterback but there seems to be a ceiling even with quality offensive pieces around him. On the last offensive play of the game during a two-minute drive, Bridgewater took a big hit and was barely able to move his arm while spiking the ball to stop the clock. He looked to be in pain while jogging off for the field goal attempt. It's unclear how serious his injury is, but the Panthers at least have the Week 13 bye to heal up.

Teddy Bridgewater completed 21-of-35 passes for 258 yards, adding 26 rushing yards and a touchdown, in the Panthers' 24-16 Week 15 loss to the Packers.

Bridgewater has produced significant mental lapses in two straight games that directed led to his team's loss. In Week 14, Bridgewater needlessly hurried his offense to run a play on 3rd-down before the two-minute warning, basically wasting an important opportunity. Tonight, Bridgewater fumbled on the goal line while attempting to reach the ball over the plane. He also fumbled again later on inside the five-yard line, but the play ultimately did not count. Bridgewater simply is not skilled enough to mask earlier mistakes, and is now 0-for-8 on the season in game-winning drive scenarios. His play likely points to the team looking in a different direction when considering their future at the position.

2 games in a row he’s gotten a chance to win or tie on the final drive.... and turned the ball over on downs without even picking up a fist down.  That just seems weird.  With defenses playing prevent, you would expect at least one first down.

I don’t have the stats to back this up, but Bridgewater also seems to have a lot of trouble with the play clock.  Too many timeouts or delay of game where he is still up at the line of scrimmage adjusting the play with like 2 seconds left of the clock, and he doesn’t realize it.

I saw Aaron Rodgers do this in most recent game but no flag. He gets a full second or longer beyond the play clock. No flag.

Lions could be a good bridge spot. Whatever rookie they draft to replace Stafford might need a year on the bench.

Especially if it is Lance...gotta believe he will need a decent amount of seasoning.

Sounds like Rhule has a bridge in Charlotte to sell you.

I get this wise impression from the off-season news. I think they would take Teddy at a smaller contract and roll with what they have for camp. Don't forget Will is there too and he coached PJ.

I think they would draft the right stud or trade for the right star but that's all.

I read of Samuels and Corey Davis about trading spots and it's always mentioned that they need a star or two on D and upgrade OL. Those needs are first round and big free agent needs.

I read of all three QBs walking and when's that happen? They were comfy enough to let whatshisname go to Washington last offseason. 

I really think they're fine with their QBs but want the world to know they'd listen. That's all.

The 49ers have reached out to the Panthers about a potential trade for Teddy Bridgewater. 

The Niners' interest in Bridgewater doesn't necessarily mean they're keen on replacing Jimmy Garoppolo as the team's starter. 49ers general manager John Lynch has said the team needs to upgrade its backup QBs as to avoid a lost season if or when the oft-injured Jimmy G is sidelined. Carolina is among the leaders in the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes, making Bridgewater expendable if a team has a solid offer for the veteran. There's almost no chance Bridgewater starts for Carolina in 2021.

ESPN's John Keim reports Teddy Bridgewater "could make sense" as Washington's QB in 2021. 

Washington officially released Alex Smith on Friday, saving almost $15 million against the salary cap. Keim cited Bridgewater's familiarity with Football Team offensive coordinator Scott Turner, with whom Bridgewater worked in Minnesota years ago. Marty Hurney, Washington's executive vice president of player personnel, was with the Panthers when the team signed Bridgewater last year. This would hinge on the Panthers drafting a quarterback with the eighth pick in the NFL Draft or adding a starting QB in free agency (Carolina has cleared cap space for a possible run at Deshaun Watson). Bridgewater wouldn't be anything more than a bridge option to a long-term quarterback for Washington, assuming the veteran can beat out Taylor Heinicke for the starting job.

Panthers coach Matt Rhule said, "As far as where Teddy Bridgewater stands with us, he's our quarterback."

This reeks of "Josh Rosen is our guy". Earlier this offseason, Rhule was concerned with how the passing offense stalled late in 2020 and specifically said Bridgewater needs to have a good offseason camp. The Panthers have been active in Deshaun Watson sweepstakes and pursued Matthew Stafford before he was traded to Los Angeles. Under new ownership, Carolina is considered to be as aggressive as anyone in finding a true franchise quarterback. While not cuttable, Bridgewater's contract is tradable if a team like Washington wants to acquire Bridgewater's calm presence. Most assume peg the Panthers as a trade-up candidate in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Denver

I bet Denver tells Carolina they might consider it if they can't move up.   And if they can't then that probably means a QB falls to Carolina at 8 leaving Denver licking chops at 9 and not wanting to trade for Bridgewater.

And then New England swoops in from 15 to 8 and takes that QB.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Panthers have allowed Teddy Bridgewater to engage in trade talks with other teams after Carolina acquired Sam Darnold from the Jets. 

Rapoport added that the team is open to Bridgewater returning if he can't find a suitable trade partner. This all but confirms that Carolina sees Darnold as the team's 2021 starter after a 2020 season in which Bridgewater struggled mightily in an otherwise talented Panthers offense. Carolina wouldn't get much in return for the veteran journeyman, and wherever Bridgewater lands, he'll likely be a serviceable backup.

I have seen several articles suggesting NE should trade for Bridgewater ASAP, and just like with Garoppolo, the numbers don't work. The Patriots have about $12M in cap space. They have to navigate through $8M in dead cap money from Patrick Chung retiring. And they have to sign all their draft picks. If traded without a reworked contract, Bridgewater would immediately count $18M against the cap of the team that would be acquiring him. Realistically, without further cuts (possible), contract extensions (probable), and hardball tactics to get current players to play for less (very likely), the Pats couldn't trade for Bridgewater as they are very close to having no cap room left. They would need him to either be released or to rework his deal while still on the Panthers roster. Even if they went through the gyrations to bring Teddy to town, he may have been less productive in CAR (on a team with weapons) than Cam was in NE. NE is said to have had interest in Bridgewater last season, so one wouldguess they might still have some interest now.
