Teddy Bridgewater is making a quick ascent up the pecking order of quarterbacks in Minnesota.
According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the rookie is already splitting first-team reps in practice with Matt Cassel, and there is "hugeeee optimism" for his future.
"May not be Week 1 starter but he's definitely been more impressive than [coaches] expected," Glazer tweeted about Bridgewater on Sunday
That last sentence echoes a sentiment Bridgewater's own offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, expressed earlier this month.
Bridgewater is a fine dynasty pick. Even with Turner's help, I'm not thinking about him much in re-draft leagues. But if he can keep defenses somewhat honest and get the ball to Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph consistently, he's cool with me.
