Draft Scout News
08/17/16 - QB Teddy Bridgewater has accepted the team's challenge to "let it loose" more this year. He is stepping up in the pocket decisively and looking to move the ball downfield rather than just dump it off to a running back. His 22-yard completion to Adam Thielen over the middle in traffic against the Bengals was an example of the kind of acceptable risk Bridgewater refused to take a year ago.
08/11/16 - QB Teddy Bridgewater had another play that indicates he's becoming a more comfortable downfield thrower. On a deep out on Wednesday, he threw a nice arc over the head of cornerback Adam Jones to receiver Stefon Diggs. The ball traveled 30 yards in the air and had plenty of strength and touch to it.
06/15/16 - QB Teddy Bridgewater appears to be noticeably stronger than last season. And, in his case, incredibly stronger than he did as a rookie two years ago. The third-year pro won't be confused for a body builder, a linebacker or even a big quarterback.

01/11/16 - QB Teddy Bridgewater threw for only 146 yards in the loss to Seattle, but he did set the team playoff record for highest completion percentage (70.8). Bridgewater completed 17 of 24 passes to nine different receivers.
12/28/15 - QB Teddy Bridgewater became the seventh Vikings quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season (3,132). The last was Brett Favre, who threw for 4,202 in 2009.
