The Detroit Lions have reached an agreement with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who has previously worked with head coach Dan Campbell. Bridgewater, known for his successful stint with the New Orleans Saints when Drew Brees was injured, has impressed Campbell with his ability to keep the team on track. The Lions are looking for a reliable backup option in case Jared Goff is unable to play, and they will assess whether Bridgewater or Nate Sudfeld is the right fit for that role. Campbell emphasized the importance of having a player who can give the team the best chance of winning if needed, even if it requires adjusting their game strategy. Bridgewater’s experience and track record make him an intriguing option. However, the team also has third-round pick Hendon Hooker on the roster, although his recovery from a torn ACL suggests he may not see much playing time in his rookie season..
