As rumors continue to persist about the availability of New York Jets quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in a trade, at least one team has shown its hand.
According to this report, the Denver Broncos are not interested Bridgewater and are more than happy with what they’ve seen from free agent signing Case Keenum.
It’s my understanding the Broncos have no interest in Teddy Bridgewater as long as Case Keenum is healthy. Keenum is the guy and Denver has no interest in Bridgewater as a backup.

It’s certinaly an interesting dynamic to look at. Former first-round pick Paxton Lynch was replaced by second-year signal caller Chad Kelly as the No. 2 behind Keenum just recently.
Given that the only market that exists for Bridgewater is to come to another team as a backup, one might conclude that the Broncos would’ve shown interest. Apparently, that’s not the case.
The longer Bridgewater’s situation draws on without teams showing interest, the more likely it is he’ll stay in New York as a backup to presumed starter Sam Darnold. At that point, something could come to fruition prior to the trade deadline should an injury or two occur early in the season.
