The Carolina Panthers have signed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year, $63 million contract.

It’s good to see Bridgewater rake in a big payday, especially after coming off his ACL tear back in 2016 and was shipped to the Jets before they moved him to the Saints.

Teddy made a good run last season by keeping the Saints in playoff contention while Drew Brees went down.

The 27-year-old now has positive fantasy upside as he’ll be dumping the ball off to Christian McCaffrey and looking downfield for the speedy D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel.

Bridgewater will also get Chris Hogan when he comes back healthy as well.
