This is getting ridiculous...LOL!


I've also heard that the Bears and Bucs will sign him too.

I sure wish we could’ve tagged him or another year so we could’ve gotten trade value . I think a team would’ve parted with a 2nd for sure maybe a 1st for Teddy
Tagging him would cost a fortune. Brees still hasn’t made a decision yet so he may end up staying here. I think Payton prefers Taysom though. We will find out soon.

Compensatory picks are real. And will get a same or higher pick than he would in a trade IMO.

This forum has overvalued our back up QBs as trade assets for years, I got tired of reading how Luke McCown would pull in a very high pick, for example 🤣

I wonder if he might end up with the 49ers? Using Jimmy G as trade bait and signing a FA QB is about all they can do to upgrade the roster given their lack of cap space and low draft position. Their defense is great. Run game is great. They don't need much, just a bit of an upgrade in the passing game, and I think Bridgewater would give them that at a very good price compared to what they would pay Brady or Newton.

It all comes down to what Tom and Drew do. I think Tamps may be the best fit if they don't sign Winston. NE after Brady would be worse than coming after Drew. I still think we're crazy to let a proven commodity out of the building.

Personally, I am not concerned about Teddy leaving. The upside of Taysom Hill is what I think the correct play is for the organization, and quite honestly I would literally never fear Teddy Bridgewater at QB if he signed with a common opponent or divisional opponent of ours.

I really like the guy as a person and think he is a good backup, but as a starting QB, he is a game manager and not someone that will "win" a game for you, but will at best "not lose" the game for you. Big difference.

I feel like a lot of people see "backup QB went 5-0" and automatically think it means he must have been great. But for those watching the games closely, they know Teddy Bridgewater isn't the reason why the Saints went 5-0.

I know many people will point to a couple of his more-decent games, or maybe that one time he threw for 300 yards that I can remember off-hand, but a lot of that production was off of an excellent screen game, dump-offs, and/or passes to literally the best WR in football, with a game plan tailored by arguably the best schemer and play-caller in football, versus what I believe was a statistically porous pass defense with an injury or two (edit: his lone 300-yard game was against Tampa Bay at home, who was ranked 32nd in pass defense at that time and finished the year ranked 30th).

So if he signs with Carolina, so be it. I'd be more than happy with facing Teddy Bridgewater twice a year.
