Teddy Bridgewater Visits Tampa BayApril 7th, 2014
Well, it seems like Garrett Gilbert will have company on the practice fields at One Buc Palace. That’s because Gilbert isn’t the only quarterback working out for the Bucs today.
The man many regard as the best pro-style quarterback in the draft, Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville, will be tossing passes to Bucs receivers not named Mike Williams this afternoon, so says Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
@RapSheet: Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater is in Tampa today visiting with #Bucs, source says. Bridgewater has visited with most in Top 10. Pats too
Of course, we all know Bridgewater is not Joe’s first choice quarterback. That’s Johnny Football. Now readers have hammered Joe why he doesn’t write about Bridgewater. That’s because Joe is pretty well convinced Bridgewater’s chances of falling to the Bucs is less likely than Johnny Football’s.
Joe would be happy with Bridgwater. From the research Joe has done, the biggest thing Bridgewater must overcome is fears from NFL front office types about his slender build. NFL types seem to be more fearful Bridgewater will get snapped in half than Johnny Football.
