Teddy Bridgewater Will Replace Tom Brady As Patriots Quarterback
Teddy Bridgewater will replace Tom Brady as the New England Patriots’ starting quarterback, should the 42-year-old leave.
On March 18, the NFL will change dramatically. Either Brady will return to New England and free up quarterbacks like Bridgewater to join organizations in desperate need of a new quarterback, or he will leave and his spot within the Patriots will need to be filled.
If the latter occurs, Bridgewater will likely be called in as Brady’s replacement.
Bridgewater served as a backup quarterback for the New Orleans Saints last year.
When Drew Brees got hurt, the 27-year-old did an admirable job filling in. He ultimately led the Saints to a 5-0 record and amassed 1205 yards, nine scores and two picks on nearly 70 percent passing.
According to odds makers, Bridgewater is currently a 3/1 favorite to replace Brady. Behind him is former Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota at 5/1, current Cincinnati Bengals at 6/1 and Jarrett Stidham at 7/1.
Will Bridgewater ultimately end up taking over for Brady? That question and many others will be answered come this Wednesday.
