In a move that really wasn’t all that shocking, Louisville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater officially declared his intentions on Wednesday to enter the 2014 NFL Draft, where he will more than likely be the top signal caller taken.
Bridgewater is leaving the Cardinals after a stellar career in which he shattered records, and even won a BCS bowl game for head coach Charlie Strong and the program, last year’s Sugar Bowl against Florida.
But now, it’s time to take that next step, as it’s obvious to most scouts that Bridgewater is indeed ready to join the professional ranks.
With this, though, he’s now going to need some representation, and he may have found that in the form of rap mogul, Jay-Z.
According to a report from National Football Post, sources have told them that Bridgewater has been in discussion with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency about representing him as he makes the NFL leap.
Bridgewater is the third name tied to this upcoming NFL Draft that has been linked to the rap star, adding his name to a list that already includes Jadeveon Clowney and Brett Hundley.
