Miami Dolphins: 4 reasons why Teddy Bridgewater is a good fit
This may not be a huge deal when it comes to on-field performance, but Teddy Bridgewater is a local kid who grew up in the shadow of Pro Player Stadium. He was born in Miami and attended Miami Northwestern Senior High School. While he never brought his school a state championship, Bridgewater became one of the most decorated high school athletes in South Florida.
He even committed to play for the University of Miami and stuck with it for nearly six months. The plan was ruined when Miami head coach Randy Shannon was fired and Bridgewater went to play for Louisville.
Dolphin fans love to take care of their own. Much like Bridgewater, Duke Johnson was the hometown hero in 2021. He got enormous ovations every time he touched the ball, and he made good on his opportunities by giving the Dolphins a legit ground attack too late in the season. The crowd chanted “DUUUUUUKE” every time he touched the ball, though it may be more difficult to come up with a crowd-wide chant for “Bridgewater”. It would also be weird if the home crowd cheered on every snap.
