Teddy Bridgewater and Panthers reach a three-year deal worth $63 mil

Carolina is giving former Saints' QB Teddy Bridgewater a three-year, $63 million deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact: 

This signing comes on the heels of the Panthers announcing that they are permitting Cam Newton to seek a trade, but Newton's response indicates that they didn't give him a choice. Meanwhile, Bridgewater's performance filling in for an injured Drew Brees was enough to earn him roughly $20 million per year in Carolina. He completed 67.9% of his passes for 1384 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions with a 7.1 YPA. Fantasy-wise, he'll have two good receivers to throw to in D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, while Christian McCaffrey is one of the best receiving backs in the league, so it's a good situation. He'll likely be ranked as a low-end QB2/high-end QB3 this summer.
