Saints Restructure Drew Brees' Contract To Create Cap Space

Teddy Bridgewater will back up Drew Brees again in 2019

Bridgewater appeared to reference the anniversary of the Brees signing in a report shortly before the signing was reported.

According to a source, the move created $10.8 million in space.

We thought Teddy Bridgewater turned down an offer from the Dolphins to remain with the Saints.

The 40-year-old Brees had one of his best seasons in 2018, throwing for 3,992 yards, with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions, while completing a record 74.4% of his passes.

Could Teddy Bridgewater be making a homecoming? Tannehill is expected to be traded or released at some point.


Bridgewater, a former Miami Northwestern standout, believes he could continue to improve under Saints coach Sean Payton and eventually succeed quarterback Drew Brees as the future Saints starter. Bridgewater is visiting Miami at their facility this evening.

Bridgewater was the last pick of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The former first-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings chose to stay with the New Orleans Saints, as he is considered as the favorite to become Drew Brees' successor.

Big things were expected of Bridgewater during his third season, but a gruesome leg injury - in which he nearly lost his leg - caused him to miss the entire 2016 season.
