Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft after a stellar collegiate career at the University of Louisville. In Minnesota, Bridgewater showed promise early, earning a Pro Bowl selection in his second season.

Unfortunately, a severe knee injury during the 2016 preseason sidelined him for nearly two full seasons. Upon his return, Bridgewater spent time with the Jets and the Saints, filling in admirably for an injured Drew Brees in 2019.

His performance led to a starting opportunity with the Carolina Panthers in 2020, where he provided steady quarterback play. In 2021, Bridgewater was traded to the Denver Broncos, where he competed for and won the starting quarterback job.

His performance earned him a Pro Bowl selection, one of three he would achieve in his career (2000, 2003, 2004).

His career took a downturn following a serious knee injury in 2005, and he then bounced around with several teams including the Dolphins, Raiders, and Lions.
