Teddy Bridgewater Plans To Retire After This Season

Saturday, December 16, 12:28 PM

Detroit Lions backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said that he plans to hang up his cleats and retire from professional football after the 2023 season concludes. In his ninth NFL season, Bridgewater hasn't attempted a pass this year as the backup to Jared Goff in his first year in Detroit. The 31-year-old was once considered a franchise QB for the Minnesota Vikings before suffering a devastating knee injury. He spent the first three years of his career in Minnesota and made his lone Pro Bowl appearance in 2015. Injuries continued to limit Bridgewater in recent years, and he made only two starts for the Miami Dolphins since 2021. If Bridgewater doesn't play the rest of this season, he'll end his career with a 66.4 completion percentage on 2,067 attempts for 15,120 yards, 75 touchdowns and 47 interceptions in 79 games (65 starts) with Minnesota, New Orleans, Carolina, Denver and Miami.

Daniel Jones Says Rehab Is Going Well

Thursday, February 15, 7:08 PM

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) said his rehab from a torn right ACL is "going well." Jones tore his ACL on Nov. 5 and missed the rest of the year. "I'm making progress. I'm three months into it, and I've started running on the anti-gravity treadmill. It's going well," Jones said. The 26-year-old former sixth overall pick in 2019 out of Duke played in just six games in 2023 after signing a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason. The Giants are hoping he'll stay healthy in 2024 and bounce back while costing $47 million against the salary cap. They continue to say that they are committed to him as their starter under center, but if he disappoints again in 2024, they could decide to move on quickly. Jones' rushing ability helps his fantasy cause, but overall he has a low fantasy ceiling as a QB2.
