With the Saints giving up a third-round pick for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (and a sixth-rounder) Youth Mike McGlinchey Jersey , it’s fair to wonder whether other teams were pursuing the former Vikings starter.
It’s still not clear whether that was the case. Multiple sources have suggested the Dolphins pursued Bridgewater. Others insist the Dolphins didn’t.
The Jaguars, per one source, also were involved to some degree. The specific extent isn’t known.
Regardless, no one was planning to make Bridgewater a starter. And, in theory, he could still be traded by the Saints to another team, if that team’s starting quarterback suffers a serious injury.
Otherwise, the Saints have a chance to fully and completely assess Bridgewater as a future starter. Given how hard it is to find a true franchise quarterback, the Saints are basically rolling the dice in the hopes of finding a guy who could take over for Drew Brees if need be, and man the position for a decade or longer.
The Chiefs cut to 53 without listing safety Daniel Sorensen Michael Gallup Color Rush Jersey , which means they anticipate him coming back at some point this season.
Sorensen went down with a knee injury early in camp and there was some concern he might miss the year. He could be placed on IR tomorrow and be eligible to return, but those players have to make the initial 53-man roster first.
The Chiefs got to the limit by cutting tight end Jace Amaro, cornerback David Amerson, wide receiver Daniel Braverman, fullback Algernon Brown, defensive tackle Stefan Charles, wide receiver Jehu Chesson, guard Ethan Cooper, wide receiver Josh Crockett, linebacker Raymond Davison Quincy Wilson Jersey , wide receiver Gehrig Dieter, cornerback Makinton Dorleant, defensive back Step Durham, linebacker Ukeme Eligwe, linebacker Tyrone Holmes, tackle Ryan Hunter, running back Ray Lawry, defensive tackle Dee Liner, quarterback Chase Litton, wide receiver Blake Mack Authentic Rashaan Evans Jersey , linebacker Rob McCray, defensive tackle T.Y. McGill, safety Leon McQuay, center Jimmy Murray, linebacker Otha Peters, defensive tackle Mike Purcell, cornerback Keith Reaser, cornerback Will Redmond, wide receiver Jordan Smallwood, tackle Bentley Spain Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey , defensive back Arrion Springs, safety Jordan Sterns, defensive back D鈥橫ontre Wade, running back Kerwynn Williams, tight end Tim Wright, and linebacker Frank Zombo.
They also placed wide receiver Byron Pringle on injured reserve, and tight end Demetrius Harris on the reserve-suspended list.
