Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is expected to sign a long-term deal to remain with the organization, according to the NFL Network.
In a brace covering his left leg, Bridgewater seems to move pretty well before firing off a pass to a receiver.
In late February, Vikings GM Rick Spielman told reporters that there was no timetable for Bridgewater’s return, and would also not say that he was certain Bridgewater could make it back.
Spielman also wouldn’t commit to an extension with Bridgewater’s replacement, Sam Bradford. Bradford set an NFL single-season record for a starting quarterback, completing 71.6 percent of his passes in 15 starts. He had a career-best 3,877 passing yards and 20 touchdowns, against just five interceptions. It led head coach Mike Zimmer to say that Bradford had earned the right to be the starting quarterback.
Just a month ago, Spielman wouldn’t even say he was certain Bridgewater would return. Hopefully this video means he’ll be back sooner rather than later.
Mike Glennon was perfect, maybe not statistically — but practically. Against the Falcons he completed 87 percent of his passes, finding seven different receivers and leading the team’s win. Two straight wins might not be enough to save Greg Schiano his job, but the Buccaneers offense has a lot of build on with Glennon under center and Bobby Rainey, who broke out with three touchdowns on Sunday.
Atlanta is a disaster, it’s that simple. Years of neglecting the team’s defense is coming back to haunt them, paired with injury struggles. There are simply too many holes to be patched and not enough talent to do it. It’s unclear whether these issues can be solved in one year, and it might be time for a full rebuild on defense.
