Teddy Bridgewater struts into the Saints bye week


Louisiana gets starved of big time football this weekend as both the 7-1 Saints & #1 ranked LSU Tigers are on a bye.   But, a break in the action usually means players get a chance to go home and visit with family and friends before the grind really gets going.

Bridewater should be feeling great. Not only are the Saints looking like one of the best teams in the NFL, but he’s earned himself a big payday somewhere next season. The soon to be 27 year old is set to become a free agent after going 5-0 as the Saints starting signal caller while Drew Brees was hurt. 

Several team officials believe Teddy Bridgewater could command a $20M-$30M salary when he hits free agency this summer, per @mikefreemanNFL -- pic.twitter.com/s5aeKKxndQ

2020 is a contract year for a number of big names in Black & Gold.  Along with Brees and Bridgewater; Vonn Bell, David Onyemata, A.J. Klein, Eli Apple and Andrus Peat are among Saints who will be unrestricted free agents.
