Teddy Bridgewater wants to be more aggressive in 2016


Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater wants to put his offseason focus on being more aggressive for the 2016 National Football League season.

Even though the Minnesota Vikings reached the playoffs in 2015 and were the NFC North champions, that doesn’t mean that it’s time to get comfortable. In fact, Adrian Peterson has already spoken about wanting to work on ball security and the team has been hard at work on coaching changes.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be entering his third season in the NFL and his second year as a starter. He’s already known as a hard worker and student of the game, but he sees many things he wants to work on, including his overall play style.

According to ESPN.com, Bridgewater wants to be a more aggressive quarterback in 2016.

Some little things that I can do better.”"

Teddy Bridgewater has already been working on being a more vocal leader for the team, but now he wants to add that aggressive nature to his play style to help make him a more complete quarterback and team player.

"“[It’s] having that same intensity, that focus,” Bridgewater said. “Being a great leader, great communicator around this locker room, with the coaching staff, and just coming back a better player.”"

The next goal for the Minnesota Vikings will be to win a playoff game. With Teddy Bridgewater at the helm, fans should be able to rest assured that he’ll be working hard and doing his best to bring the team to the next level.
