Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater was a first round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2014 and would be named to the Pro Bowl in his second season in the league. Unfortunately, a knee injury before the 2016 season would cost him almost two full seasons and struggled to get back to the level he played at in 2015.

Over the past five seasons, Bridgewater spent two seasons with the New Orleans Saints, and then one season stops with the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins. In 2020, Bridgewater would start 15 games for the Carolina Panthers but it wouldn't be until the following year that he had his best season since his Pro Bowl season.

In his one season with the Broncos, he would throw for over 3,000 yards with 18 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. He would help Denver to a 7-7 record in his 14 starts that season.

Teddy Bridgewater is the definition of a game-manager as he will run the offense but the focus is to get the ball to his playmakers around him. The Buffalo Bills have a good group in this offense that could help Bridgewater be successful if the need for him to play arose.
