2014 NFL Draft rumors: Teddy Bridgewater met with the Vikings over weekend


The Minnesota Vikings are expected to bring in a quarterback that will challenge for the starting job in 2014, so all eyes are on the top signal-callers in the 2014 NFL Draft class as potential players the Vikings could choose to target.

To back up that belief, the Vikings began showing interest in Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater after bringing him in for a private meeting on Sunday.

The meeting came one day before Bridgewater was set to work out for scouts at his Pro Day on Monday.

Because of recent buzz surrounding Blake Bortles of UCF and Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel, there has been less talk about Bridgewater and many believe that could lead to a draft day slide. If that is the case, he should be on the board when Minnesota is on the clock in May.
