Teddy Bridgewater may not be staying in New Orleans after all, according to several news outlets.
Despite reports Tuesday that Bridgewater was choosing the Saints over a more lucrative deal from the Miami Dolphins, Bridgewater is visiting with the Dolphins at their facility Wednesday to reignite contract negotiations, according to The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.
The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley confirmed Bridgewater's visit with Miami, saying it would take place Wednesday evening.
Saints backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is expected to re-sign with the Saints, according to a report by the NFL Network's Jane Slater.
The offer Bridgewater reportedly rejected was for two-years, $10 million and the opportunity to be the Dolphins starting quarterback, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Safid Deen. Deen's report says the Dolphins intend to draft a future franchise quarterback in the 2019 or 2020 NFL drafts, but see Bridgewater as a capable stopgap.
ESPN's Dianna Russini added more fuel to the fire, reporting on TV that if the Dolphins were to kick up their previous offer by a million or two more, the Saints would bow out.

If Bridgewater were to accept the Dolphins offer, Deen reports the team would release seven-year veteran Ryan Tannehill, who led the Dolphins to a 42-46 record as a starter since being drafted in the first round of the 2012 draft.
If Tannehill is released, the Saints are expected to target him as their backup, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Bridgewater, considered one of the top free agent quarterbacks on the market this season, was acquired by the Saints last August for a third-round pick in a trade with the New York Jets.
The Miami native made 1 start in 5 games played during his one-year-stop in New Orleans, completing 14 of 23 passes for 118 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
More to come.
