4 teams who could trade for Teddy Bridgewater as a backup
By Dean Jones
Although there does appear to be plenty of hype surrounding BYU quarterback Zach Wilson during the evaluation process, it would be a massive surprise if the Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t take Trevor Lawrence with the No. 1 overall selection. The Clemson phenom has appeared NFL-ready since his freshman year and although this is the time of year for immense speculation, his body of work over the last three years makes him a can’t miss pick.
Nobody will know this more than Urban Meyer, who also has a ton of cap space to build around Lawrence this offseason. Bringing in Teddy Bridgewater to act as a mentor wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world by any stretch of the imagination and could be mutually beneficial for all parties involved in 2021.
Mike Glennon is on the roster, although Gardner Minshew probably won’t be.
There is also Lawrence’s recent surgery to consider and if things take longer than expected to heal, Jacksonville needs a better option than Glennon to lead them in the event their top draft pick has to miss time at some stage.
The Jaguars are also loaded with selections in this year’s draft. As stated previously, it won’t take much for the Carolina Panthers to part ways with Bridgewater considering what’s already transpired this offseason and the move could really benefit Lawrence as he looks to live up to the loftiest of expectations.
