Despite the nasty 2021 season, Teddy Bridgewater still remains an option for Denver Broncos in 2022.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater can’t really be done with the Denver Broncos. You read that correctly. Despite becoming a free agent in just over two weeks, the team seems to have optimism.
Again, you read that correctly.
After virtually everyone expected Bridgewater to play their last game with the Broncos, general manager George Peyton said Tuesday that Bridgewater is an option in 2022.
This becomes a small shock. In his first season with the Bridgewater team he was very unfriendly.
Bridgewater averaged 30 yards less for the game in 2021 with the Broncos than with the Carolina Panthers a year earlier. Last year in a season of 17 games Bridgewater played in 14, finishing with a record 7-7, 18 touchdowns to seven interceptions before his season was abbreviated due to concussion.
If Aaron Rogers didn’t seem to be at the table, it would still be very disappointing to see Bridgewater return. Unfortunately, we know what kind of player he is: check-down. He is not one of those who pushes the ball across the field. I admit that I liked Bridgewater’s idea over Drew Locke because of his ability to take care of the ball.
The big problem is that he went for 0.500 as a starting defender.
When the Broncos eventually start Bridgewater, I see this team going nowhere again. They really need modernization in office.
I guess there’s a chance that the new coaching staff can bring out a level of Bridgewater that we haven’t seen before. I’m not sure how likely this is going to happen, but it’s obvious that there’s something appealing between him and this staff.
It should also be noted that while he is still an option, that doesn’t mean he will be a Denver Broncos defender in 2022. At the moment, everything is on the table. If the best opportunities arise, there is no doubt that Broncas will want to raise the position of defender.
It remains a waiting game.
