The New Orleans Saints have solidified the questions surrounding their back-up quarterback position for the 2018 season, after trading for former Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater.
Bridgewater, at only 25 years old, is only under contract through the remainder of this season and is scheduled to hit free agency next offseason. But with a strong showing in the preseason, the Saints felt comfortable paying a 3rd round pick to add Teddy Bridgewater to the team this year.

In addition to Bridgewater, the Saints also received a 2019 6th Round Pick in exchange for the 2019 3rd they gave up.
It’s also important to note that if the Saints are unable (or unwilling) to sign Bridgewater to a long-term deal next offseason, the Saints could receive a compensatory 3rd round pick in return.
Also a note on the #Saints trading for Bridgewater, if he does walk and becomes a starter next season, team should get a compensatory pick for him. (Obviously other offseason moves being an unknown) https://t.co/MlbLv4LEtL— Deuce Windham (@RevDeuceWindham) August 29, 2018
