Default Teddy Bridgewater

Now before anyone blasts this idea, know that this is just an idea, lets step outside the box for a minute. Qb may not be priority one this coming year, but it will be in the near future. Why wait? In a year where the draft has a few potential franchise guys and a few coveted guys coming up in FA, a player that may go less noticed is Bridgewater. A young guy, former late first rounder, who has shown flashes and hasn't really had much of a chance to show what he has. Why not bring him in for a tryout and see if he is a fit.

Iím ok with that but I think heís gonna be an expensive back up. With PRís durability, we donít need a top notch QB2.

The biggest reason why you don't do that is as 909 said....cost.

I would be concerned about injury as well, doesn't he have a pretty strong history of injury? Or am I wrong on that with him?

No, he doesn't. He's actually been pretty durable until that 2016 freak injury. Unfortunately, that lone injury is tough to overlook because it was thought to be a career ender. But to be fair, people thought Brees' injury could have been a career ender as well.

I definitely liked him coming out of the draft especially his command at LOS, and ability to go through progressions and read defenses. The problem was that he didn't really fit Norv's archaic system. If he had stayed healthy, I think he would have definitely shined in Shurmur's.

Got it...thanks. Perhaps the believe that his injury was so bad teams will be cautious about him, lowering the cost....making him a possibility. Time will tell.

I have never liked him. I just don't trust his play. Overrated and if its crunch time, I would have to take Xanax to watch him play for us. (which is just another Sunday for the watching the Chargers)..................dramatic pause........................................

WAIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Freak Genius memory is tingling..................

It was YOU Xenos that always loved Teddy B. Wasn't it ? Wasn't it ? Tell the class of my genius here. Go ahead. You'll feel better.

Teddy is better than what we have now at back up in Kellen journeyman Clemons and Cardale couldn't hit a broadside of a barn Jones. Three of the four quarterbacks this past Sunday we're back up quarterbacks.

Teddy is worth a look see yet I don't think we should break the bank to have him on the roster. Most likely too expensive. He's coming off major knee surgery and I imagine he wants to start. Rivers is on the downside of is career so Teddy may consider given the circumstance.

We still have the run defense and line to supplement through free agency but a possibility no doubt at the right price.

I would imagine TT and staff are currently making evaluations of all players, with an eye towards how those players are viewed by the team looking at the future. Cost, development potential, depth chart, just all kinds of things go into this review/going forward plan. Personally, I do not see Clemons or Jones as viable QB's, so one would be gone to open up a spot for my 'shot in the dark' guy, while keeping an experienced QB. I do not see Bridgewater at a cost that fits this approach, but I would listen to his agent if he called.

Teddy will probably be the new RGIII. Suffered a catastrophic injury, and will never be or play the same afterwards.

Pass.
