Jared Goff is firmly entrenched as Detroit’s starting quarterback after an excellent season that saw him throw for 4,438 yards and 29 touchdowns. Bridgewater would be a strong backup option, however, which could be a significant deal for a team that will have playoff aspirations.
The 30-year-old Bridgewater spent the 2022 season with the Miami Dolphins, though he did get two starts due to injuries to Tua Tagovailoa. His own injury issues prevented him from playing more down the stretch. A similar role would await him in Detroit, and he would presumably welcome the chance to play for a potential contender.
