The chances of Teddy Bridgewater being traded by the Miami Dolphins is nearly zero but as long as QBs can get injured, one can be traded.
When looking at the NFL landscape of quarterbacks, Jimmy Garoppolo and Baker Mayfield are the two players being watched closely this off-season. Both are tradeable but both are going to be a little more expensive.
In Miami, there is Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater is the backup plan to a failed Tua Tagovailoa season but if Tua is progressing and the phone rings, don’t think for a minute that Grier doesn’t take that call. He has starting experience and can lead a team.
For the Dolphins, a trade would save over $4 million in cap space while eating only $2 million but his contract is a one-year deal and any team who loses their QB in camp could be pushing the panic button.
One person to watch through all of this, however, is Skylar Thompson. The Dolphins drafted him in round seven and if he can show improvement through the camp, the Dolphins could put their faith in Tua and rely on Thompson, a rookie to hold the clipboard. It would eliminate any question marks about Tua and starting games this season.
In reality, Bridgewater is pretty much untouchable. I know that. This isn’t a throwaway third player though. The Dolphins don’t have a lot of tradeable assets but Bridgewater is definitely one of them and if an offer is made, Grier would have the upper hand in that deal.
Will it happen? I would venture to put that around 99.9% not happening but as long as he is healthy and another team needs a starting QB, there is a possibility.
