Report: Panthers Finalizing Deal with Teddy Bridgewater

Well, that was quick. Right after the news that the Carolina Panthers brass will let Cam Newton seek a trade, they appear to have found their new signal-caller.

They have swooped into quarterback sweepstakes and snagged Teddy Bridgwater, per Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Bridgewater was a first-round pick out of Louisville by the Vikings in 2014. He was sensational in his rookie campaign and earned himself the Rookie of the Year honors to show for it. However, in practice prior to the 2016 season, he suffered a torn ACL and was out all the way until the end of 2017 in which he subbed in a game for Case Keenum.

Bridgwater was a free agent and signed with the New York Jets for the 2018 season. He was then traded in September to the New Orleans Saints where only started a few games in the 2019 season but was phenomenal. In five games started, he threw for 1,384 yards on 196 completions and nine touchdowns.

He now joins a new system where he will be the first quarterback that Matt Rhule gets to toy with. If Bridgewater can return to his old form and be as dominant as he was as a rookie and in the middle of last season, the Panthers have a shot at rebounding from an iffy season.
