Teddy Bridgewater Didn't Want to End Up In Cleveland


 

Teddy Bridgewater now plays for the Minnesota Vikings, but he could well have ended up someplace else had things fallen just a little differently on draft day.

Had one or two little twists taken place, Bridgewater could’ve easily landed in Cleveland. And that would not have made Bridgewater very happy.

Bridgewater told Dan Patrick that Minnesota was always the place he wanted to end up. And Cleveland most certainly was not.

Patrick asked Bridgewater if there was ever a chance for him to wind up in Cleveland. “There was a chance,” Bridgewater replied. “But I actually told my agent that’s not the place where I wanted to be.”

Bridgewater said he liked his visits to Minnesota and the family vibe he picked up from the Vikings and their coaches. “I felt comfortable wanting to play [in Minnesota],” Teddy said.

That statement will definitely help Teddy ingratiate himself with the fan base in Minnesota. But it won’t make the folks in Cleveland very happy.

    Someone please explain to me how the fragile and average-armed Bridgewater from a dink and dunk West Coast Offense is a good fit for a vertical (Norv Turner) offense requiring a sturdy pocket quarterback with a strong arm.
