As the Minnesota Vikings OTAs and Minicamp finish, Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater goes back home to workout and has some high-level talent to throw to.
This offseason we have heard rumblings of Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater making progress with his long ball and overall game. With the upcoming season hinging on Bridgewater’s progress, he will have to put in the work this offseason to make sure he is ready for a bigger opportunity this fall.
Over the early offseason activities held by the Vikings, there has been much praise of Bridgewater and his ability to throw the deep ball. He has been seen taking more chances instead of playing like he has in recent years being more of a game manager.
He has always spent the offseason in his native state of Florida. Earlier this offseason, Bridgewater had a gathering of Vikings wide receivers in Florida to work out together to try and build some chemistry before the upcoming season. Bridgewater is expected to have another workout with the Vikings pass catchers before training camp. These workouts have been crowned the “Teddy Two Gloves Passing Academy.”
This week, Bridgewater is working out with the NFL’s best wide receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown. Both being natives of Florida, the two were seen through Twitter and Brown’s Snapchat working out together.
Working with Brown will only help Bridgewater, especially in his deep ball as Brown is known for his deep ball catching ability and his speed. Hopefully, Bridgewater soaks up all the wisdom he can from Brown in the time they spend together this week.
Earlier this offseason, we wrote a piece on Vikings Cornerback Xavier Rhodes who is also a native of Florida, working out with Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr, and Jarvis Laundry.
It looks as if the Vikings personnel is doing all they can to work on their craft this offseason. Let’s hope it pays off in the upcoming season.
