What this deal tells us:
Now that Teddy Bridgewater is out of Carolina for good, it’s become obvious that the team has a target with the eighth overall pick in tomorrow’s draft. There’s no telling who slides down that far in the quarterback pool, but the team clearly feels their guy will be there.
And man, Bridgewater just can’t find a home. Whether he wins or not, he’s becoming a journeyman, cashing checks all over the NFL. Guess it could be worse.
So who do YOU think Carolina wants at No. 8? Trey Lance? We’ll have an answer in 36 hours…
