Teddy Bridgewater has battled through adversity over the course of his career, including an injury that nearly resulted in him losing his leg. On Tuesday afternoon, he shared an inspirational message for anyone going through a rough time.
We're only a month away from Bridgewater hitting the open market. After going 5-0 as a starter for the New Orleans Saints, the former first-round pick should have a few solid offers on the table once free agency begins.
Life wasn't easy for Bridgewater growing up in Miami, but that never stopped him from living out his dream. Now, he wants other young children to follow through and see their dreams turn into a reality.
Bridgewater shared his touching message on all of his social media accounts. His powerful story finished with the following statement: "To the young boy that's going to live out his dream and change the world, I was once in your shoes. I believe in you."
Well done, Mr. Bridgewater.
Football fans around the globe are showing their appreciation for Bridgewater on social media. He's received tons of support because of this message.
Bridgewater has stated multiple times in the past that he wants to make sure he influences the younger generation while he can. Messages like the one he just shared should allow him to do just that.
