NFL Rumors: Steelers To Pursue Veteran QB

With Ben Roethlisberger officially retiring, the Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to bring in a new starting quarterback. According to Aaron Wilson, one option they are currently considering is Teddy Bridgewater. 

Bridgewater just played this past season with the Denver Broncos. In 14 starts with the team, he had a 7-7 record, 18 touchdowns, seven interceptions, and 3,052 passing yards. Overall, it wasn't a bad year at all for the 29-year-old, but it came to an abrupt end after he sustained a concussion during Week 15's contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Although Bridgewater has had some good seasons in the NFL, he has not been able to find himself a long-term home. In 73 career games between the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Broncos, he has thrown 71 touchdowns, 43 interceptions, and 14,437 total yards. With that, he sports a 33-30 record as a starter.

Overall, Bridgewater could be a strong addition to Pittsburgh's roster. However, he certainly isn't going to be their only option, so time will tell who they end up signing.
