Cleveland Browns news: Teddy Bridgewater didn't want to play in Cleveland


Former Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater fell to the final pick of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft where the Minnesota Vikings traded up to grab him. Bridgewater slid past a number of quarterback-needy teams — including the Cleveland Browns, who were believed to have strong interest in him — and became the third quarterback off of the board.

However, while it would be easy to understand why Bridgewater would be disappointed that a team like the Cleveland Browns passed on him, twice, it appears that he got his wish and was really never interested in joining the Browns roster.

From Paul Pabst, producer of The Dan Patrick Show:

Comments like that could make Browns fans unhappy with Bridgewater, but they will likely be too busy celebrating Johnny Manziel’s arrival to notice.

In the meantime, Bridgewater will be working on learning the Vikings playbook and Norv Turner’s offensive scheme in hopes of becoming a starter from Day 1.

    There`s nothing bad about Little Teddy Bridgewater wanting to choose the team he likes the most. He likely read on all the twitter accounts from Browns fan`s how they wanted just about every Q.B. in the draft except for one name that NEVER was mentioned. That`s right, terrible Teddy Bridgewater, likely hurt his feelings.
