ESPN's Dianna Russini reported on air that Bridgewater is expected to join the Dolphins if the team adds a few million dollars to its offer.

Bridgewater also seemed to acknowledge the odd symmetry his return has with Brees' arrival in New Orleans. Rumors that the team might be looking for New Orleans Saints' head coach Sean Payton to replace current Cowboys' coach Jason Garrett in 2020 could reportedly keep Teddy Bridgewater from re-signing with the NFC South champions. He looked great with the Jets in preseason a year ago and the Saints were willing to give up a third-round pick for Bridgewater.

According to a report from ESPN, the Miami Dolphins are making a "late push" to land the former Louisville star.

Bridgewater, who spent last season with the Saints, visited with his hometown Dolphins on a free-agent visit on Wednesday.
