There were conflicting reports coming out yesterday centered around quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. It's part of the reason why the signal caller met with the Miami Dolphins when it had previously been assumed he would return to the Saints.

Bridgewater started in 28 of 29 games compiling a 17-11 record as a starter during his first two seasons in the National Football League with the Minnesota Vikings before suffering a gruesome knee injury that caused him to miss the entire 2016 season. He looked great with the Jets in preseason previous year and the Saints were willing to give up a third-round pick for Bridgewater.
