Teddy Bridgewater using ‘Madden’ video game to get familiar with Panthers

Teddy Bridgewater

Teams with new quarterbacks may be at a disadvantage this offseason due to the current circumstances.

Teams are unable to meet with free agents, and offseason team activities (OTAs) have been postponed and may not occur. That has left players like Teddy Bridgewater getting creative.

Bridgewater signed a 3-year, $63 million deal with the Carolina Panthers in free agency. He spoke with the media on Thursday and said he’s using the Panthers on the Madden video game to familiarize himself with the team. He said the internet is also helping.

Bridgewater is replacing Cam Newton as Carolina’s hopeful franchise quarterback. Newton was the team’s QB since 2011 and got released this week. Carolina now has a new head coach in Matt Rhule, a new QB in Bridgewater, and they brought in receiver Robby Anderson. But it may take time for everyone to get on the same page, no matter how much Madden Bridgewater plays.
