Saints QB Drew Brees Restructures Contract, Creates $11M In Cap Space

We thought Teddy Bridgewater turned down an offer from the Dolphins to remain with the Saints.

There were conflicting reports coming out yesterday centered around quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The New Orleans Saints reached an agreement with quarterback Drew Brees to restructure his contract, freeing up salary cap space for the 2019 fiscal year.

To compound this development, Dianna Russini of ESPN has reported that while the Saints are still confident they will sign Bridgewater, a deal is not imminent.

The Dolphins are in need of a quarterback this upcoming season and Bridgewater is a Miami native.

Taylor is expected to sign with the Los Angeles Chargers to be Phillip Rivers' backup, according to the NFL Network.

Bridgewater started in 28 of 29 games compiling a 17-11 record as a starter during his first two seasons in the National Football League with the Minnesota Vikings before suffering a gruesome knee injury that caused him to miss the entire 2016 season.

Brees is set to make $11 million and has a roster bonus of $12 million, as part of a two-year, $50 million deal he signed in 2018. The Dolphins would give Bridgewater a chance to start immediately and potentially earn a much more lucrative contract in the near future.
