While responding to a report from Chris Mortensen of ESPN about poor workouts by his client Teddy Bridgewater, agent Kennard McGuire said that the report was false because, in part, Bridgewater had only worked out for one team.
McGuire also said that would change on Saturday when Bridgewater worked out for another team. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network follows up on reports that the workout was for the Vikings with a note that Bridgewater is now visiting with the team in Minnesota.
The Vikings, who pick eighth, have met with several of the top quarterback prospects already as they look for someone who could upgrade the position over the Matt Cassel/Christian Ponder duo currently on hand. Bridgewater’s ability to do that has generated a wide range of opinions through draft season, with some feeling strongly about his chances of making it as an NFL starter and others predicting a tumble down the draft board for a player who was once thought to be a safe bet to be the first player off the board.
Whether or not Bridgewater is in play for that first-round pick is something only the Vikings can tell us and we’re not expecting to see any press releases to that effect when the visit comes to an end.
