Carolina’s New $60M Man: Teddy Bridgewater will be Cam Newton’s Replacement

*(Via NY Post) – Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has yet another new home, and he’s going to get a chance to show he can be an NFL starter.

The Carolina Panthers are finalizing a deal to sign Bridgewater as Cam Newton’s replacement, according to multiple reports. The deal will be for three years and $60 million, per ESPN.

Bridgewater, 27, will reunite with new Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady and get his first chance to be a full-time starter since his 2015 Pro Bowl season with the Vikings following a devastating knee injury and several years as a backup.

He’ll get that chance because the Panthers are set to move on from Newton after nine years, seeking a trade partner amid a contentious divorce.

Bridgewater spent the last two seasons with the Saints as Drew Brees’ backup. In 2018, he overlapped with Brady, who was an offensive assistant in New Orleans from 2017-2018.
