NFL Draft rumors: Teddy Bridgewater to visit Patriots on Wednesday


With the 2014 NFL Draft just over a month away, prospects are beginning to make their pre-draft visits to meet with potential teams. One of the teams that has made some intriguing moves during the draft season has been the New England Patriots, who will be meeting with Johnny Manziel.

Along with Manziel, the Patriots will be meeting with another top quarterback prospect — Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network passed along the news late Tuesday night.
