Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been wearing a glove during most games for the past couple of years. For his Pro Day workout on Monday, he shed the glove.
Shaun King asked Bridgewater about the decision during an interview that will are on Monday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.
“Well, when I was training down in Florida you know its 80 degree weather, sunny every day,” Bridgewater said. “So I was out there throwing without the glove and just letting it rip, so I felt confident coming into this process, coming today that I trained without the glove so I could throw on Pro Day without the glove. So that was the biggest thing that led to that decision.”
Bridgewater also explained that doesn’t emulate any one quarterback. Instead, he tries to incorporate some of what each of them does best.
“I try to pattern my game after all them because each guy brings something different to the table,” Bridgewater said. “Peyton Manning, he’s quick with the football, he’s very smart. Tom Brady, he’s a winner, a competitor. Aaron Rodgers, he’s a big arm, could throw on the run, he’s mobile. Drew Brees, decisiveness. The list goes on and on but that’s just a sample of what I try to take away from each guy.”
