After seeing the photo of Teddy Bridgewater with Cordarrelle Patterson at the Minnesota Wild game on Friday, it is easy to believe that he is already getting immersed in everything that is Minnesota.
And that is a good thing. According to a tweet from NFL Network’s Albert Breer, he’s planning on making Minneapolis his new home after being the #32 overall selection by the Vikings on Thursday night.
Here is the tweet from Breer;
Bridgewater told me he wants to get his weight in the 225 range. He’s moving to Minneapolis … Now. Having his stuff shipped. Going to work

However, the most important part of this tweet may be that Teddy Bridgewater is focused on bulking up to around 225 pounds.
Recently, there has been a lot of concern about Bridgewater’s durability due to his slight size. The reason for his weight loss in college was an illness that caused him to drop to 208 pounds at the combine. Putting on a bit more bulk will help Bridgewater silence some of the Minnesota Vikings fans that have been criticizing his selection in the draft.
And for the rest of you that are down on Teddy Bridgewater as the Vikings quarterback of the future: Don’t worry, Teddy is bringing his glove with him to Minnesota and continue to wear it for the foreseeable future..
