Dolphins emerging to fight Teddy Bridgewater away from Saints

Obviously, there's more of an opportunity for Bridgewater to start in Miami than in New Orleans.

We thought Teddy Bridgewater turned down an offer from the Dolphins to remain with the Saints.

That may not have been the case had Bridgewater signed in Miami.

Bridgewater, 26, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft.

Miami is expected to release seven-year veteran Ryan Tannehill, who led the Dolphins to a 42-46 record as a starter since being drafted as their first-round pick in 2012. He played in one game with the Vikings in 2017 before joining the Saints in 2018. He gets another year of practice reps alongside Drew Brees, they get another year to further evaluate him, and the market for free agent starting-caliber quarterbacks has a year to reset itself.

Taylor is expected to sign with the Los Angeles Chargers to be Phillip Rivers' backup, according to the NFL Network. Rumors that the team might be looking for New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton to replace current Cowboys' coach Jason Garrett in 2020 could reportedly keep Teddy Bridgewater from re-signing with the NFC South champions.

Bridgewater is apparently willing to wait to find the ideal long-term fit, even though he has started just one game over the past three seasons.
