Wale Tweets Support for Teddy Bridgewater

Olubowale Victor Akintimehi, better known by his stage name Wale, showed his support for Teddy Bridgewater in his latest tweet.

Teddy Bridgewater suffered a season-ending injury last week on a non-contact play during practice. Wale joins a large list of NFL players who have tweeted support for Teddy Bridgewater since his injury.

Wale's tweet shows Teddy Bridgewater's Louisville and Minnesota Vikings jerseys, both signed by Bridgewater. The Vikings jersey sports a line from Wale's hit "Sunshine," which is also featured in the tweet. The line reads, "may the optimism of tomorrow be your foundation for today," which is fitting as Bridgewater looks to recover for the 2017 season. Wale is a big fan of the Vikings' quarterback. In May, Wale tweeted his loyalty to the Redskins, but praised Teddy Bridgewater and announced his intention to have a Bridgewater jersey in every color:

Wale, a Washington, D.C. native is also a favorite of Teddy Bridgewater, who often tweets the rapper's lyrics:

Real recognize real.

Bridgewater released a statement following his season-ending injury and said he plans to attack his rehab with vigor and energy. The Vikings traded for Sam Bradford in Bridgewater's absence as the QB looks forward to the 2017 season.
