Dolphins wrap up free-agent visit with Teddy Bridgewater

According to a source, the move created $10.8 million in space. Brees' current contract will void after the 2019 season, making him a free agent in March 2020 or opening the door for his retirement.

They are set to host tight end Jared Cook and are trying to bring back quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for a backup role.

METAIRIE, La. - Free agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has chose to stay with the New Orleans Saints as their backup and potential successor to Drew Brees rather than pursue an immediate starting opportunity with his hometown Miami Dolphins, sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini on Thursday. He finished a free-agency visit with the Dolphins on Wednesday and left without a deal.

According to multiple reports, the Dolphins attempted to land Tyrod Taylor before he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Bridgewater's agreement comes on the 13-year anniversary of Brees signing his original deal in New Orleans.

Bridgewater, a former Miami Northwestern standout, believes he could continue to improve under Saints coach Sean Payton and eventually succeed quarterback Drew Brees as the future Saints starter.

After coming back from a gruesome knee injury that almost derailed his career, the former first-round pick finally has a chance to break the bank.
