Teddy Bridgewater To Miss Season, Tebow’s Baseball Tryout

FOOTBALL

Teddy BridgewaterMinnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will miss the entire 2016 season after the results of his MRI revealed he has an ACL tear. The noncontact injury occurred during a preseason practice after dropping back for a pass. As a second year pro, Bridgewater was selected to the Pro Bowl last year, and was expected to help his team get to the playoffs this season. Vikings Coach Mike Zimmer was on the verge of tears discussing Bridgewaters’ injury but made it a point to show his confidence in backup Shaun Hill.

Former NFL QB Tim Tebow’s tryout with Major League Baseball was a mixed bag on Tuesday. According to insiders, it wasn’t his best showing, but a few teams might be interested in continuing to talk to him.  At 29 years old, Tebow is determined to make a comeback (as a baseball player). Good luck Tebow!

Cassel To Start For Vikings, Bullying Soap Star Martin New Team, Bell And Blount Arrested For Possession

FOOTBALL

In the NFL, former Louisville star QB Teddy Bridgewater has had a very impressive pre-season.  He appears to be the future of the Vikings organization.  On Monday, however,  the Vikings brass named Matt Cassel the starting quarterback heading into the season.  For Vikings’ fans, this may seem like a let down, but Cassel and the Vikings’ offense have looked good in the pre-season as well.  The Vikings may surprise some people this year.  

Richie IncognitoElsewhere in the NFL, you may remember the controversy last season out of Miami.  The bullying soap opera between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin was all over the sports media channels for almost three full months. Incognito has now separated from the Dolphins and is out looking for work.  And he may have an interested buyer in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  The Bucs have had some injuries this pre-season, and adding Incognito could help out.  Sure he has baggage, but one of their players commented, “So does everyone”.  

Finally in the NFL, Steelers’ running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrett Blount were just arrested for marijuana possession and Bell was charged for a DUI.  Bell was even quoted as saying “I didn’t know you could get a DUI for being high”.  Really???? The fact that he either didn’t know that or had the stupidity to say it, is astounding. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said suspensions could be on the table for Bell and Blount.  Of course that is against the best interests of the team to have them out for too long, so unfortunately look for the suspension to be something rather miniscule.
