Report: 49ers called Panthers about Teddy Bridgewater


Recommended Posts

I have stated multiple times on this board there would be a definite interest in Teddy. fug the Saints would probably trade for him too.

FYI: The NFLrums Twitter is also saying that the Steelers have "shown interest" in Bridgewater.

Haven't seen a credible Steelers source say it and they just signed Haskins so, as usual with this account, it's likely bullsh-t.

From a Panthers perspective there is no reason not to trade him. No matter what getting him off the books is a win. 

All we have to do is cut him and we save some. At worst 2 million if done now. Trade would obviously help more but we aren't exactly upside down in terms of his cap hit currently.

They just tweet about things fan sites say. There are Steelers  fan sites suggesting he is an option. It's like tweetimg some idea floated here as a a rumor. It's the kind of vague bs twitter entities get away with to create traffic

Why would a team trade for him when it's more likely we release him?

I'm guessing to secure that they get him. If released, 31 teams would have a shot at him if they choose.

I'm not sure why a team would be so interested, but if they are willing to give anything, then take it run.

I question any of these "cap hell" teams when they are talking about Teddy. Why make your path to getting under the salary cap for 2021 even harder?

People are ignoring how bad that contract is and that not many teams want it or can afford it at the $180 mil cap level.

Yeah but you can get him for pennies compared to what his current contract is. I can assure you, Teddy won't be looking at an eight figure contract if/when he gets cut.

You are kidding yourself if you think they were actually offering something for him and his contract to be a backup QB. They were more likely offering to take him off our hands if the Panthers gave them a 5th rd pick or something like that.

Make it a 6th and we have a deal

Trade his ass now 

They're trying, but you still need a willing partner and they're not just going to give him away for nothing.

    • We don't have a clear picture on which positions will be premium, which middle of the road, and which scrubs. We don't know Rhule's/Fittere's blueprint, so we can't anticipate what we'll will do in the draft and FA. I do know some thing about Fitterer and Rhule. They both love fast roster churning at the bottom. So our scrubs will likely be pushed hard to overachieve, and when they don't they be sent packing quickly for the next scrub. Churning the hell out of the bottom of the roster is way of trying to find overachieving gems asap. The drawback is that the burden is placed on the coaches to always be dealing with inexperienced new guys, and more so than the typical NFL team. We also know that Rhule loves balance, so he wants to be able to run and pass very well. He places a premium on being able to run in cold weather late in the season and during playoffs. In the past things were simple. We knew our scrub position on defense were the safeties. We had a system that didn't require the safeties to be high quality. Now we really don't know what is going on yet. The defense is still up in the air, so who knows what we're going to do in the future.
