Earlier this week, the New Orleans Saints reportedly re-signed backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. In the immediate aftermath of the news, his contract details remained mum.
All trades and free agent deals became official on Wednesday afternoon as the new league year officially began.
While Saints fans were expecting to welcome Bridgewater back to the team, it looks like another NFL team is making a play for him.
According to a report from ESPN, the Miami Dolphins are making a “late push” to land the former Louisville star. ESPN’s Dianna Russini suggested the deal with the Saints isn’t done just yet.

The Dolphins are in need of a quarterback this upcoming season and Bridgewater is a Miami native.
According to multiple reports, the Dolphins attempted to land Tyrod Taylor before he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers. Now they’re making a push for Bridgewater.
After coming back from a gruesome knee injury that nearly derailed his career, the former first-round pick finally has a chance to break the bank.
He saw limited action behind Drew Brees during the 2018 season. Bridgewater looked to be in line to land the starting job in New Orleans after Brees’ retirement, but it looks like he’s considering other options.
