Bridgewater, 27, had a promising career going in Minnesota before having a gruesome leg injury. Since that point, he has been a backup for the Vikings and for Drew Brees in New Orleans.
The former first-round pick has seen some playing time over the last two seasons when Brees has been injured. In 2019, Bridgewater threw for 1,384 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions on 65. 2 percent completion. He started five games and didn’t lose as the starting quarterback. His play made him a valuable free agent quarterback.
Carolina is opening up a new era. They hired Matt Rhule from Baylor, linebacker Luke Kuechly retired and they allowed Cam Newton to seek a trade. With Bridgewater coming in, Newton is free to find a new team to play for in 2020.
