LOL.

Freak saying nothing,
so he can later say
"I called it"
and/or
"It wasn't me."

Of course frozen declared that "it's not even close,"
although he had no idea what "it's" was...
oh no, they're on to me

was reading a Pro Football Weekly article the other day that ventured that the Vikes might not be so keen to resign him ??

The guy isn't a back up QB and I believe that he deserves to start but just not for us.
think that's the rub.... no questions asked 'bout whether he'd be a good backup QB.... the question is he worth the risk as a potential/possible starter ?? (best thing, speaking for myself, is that in theory we could forego drafting a QB w/Teddy B. on the roster)

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.
agree, think he's worth a shot, and think you might be able to sign him for a cool $6m ??

If we could sign Teddy for 6 mill, id hope we would do that. Im sure other teams would be willing to pay more though, but 6 mill is about what we paid Antonio Gates. At this point, Id rather be paying Teddy the money and with that we can let Cardale and Clemons walk.

from what I can gather some peoples are putting the market value on Bridgewater 'round $8m.... I'd offer him $2m less and see what happens.... ditto for Star btw, as have seen a little over $8m as his projected salary range, and.... would feel better 'bout him at a couple mil less.

It’s bad timing, I would be down to take a flyer on him if I thought Rivers was 1-2 years away from retirement... but I think he’s 3-4 years away.

The man still walks with a limp.
By all means sign him...
