Teddy Bridgewater grateful NFL journey led him to Carolina

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Preparing to take over a new team in a new city is a challenge for anyone, but for Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater he is simply grateful that his NFL journey has led him to Carolina where he feels confident, that despite the challenges this year has brought, the team is already his.

"I credit that to Mr. Tepper, Marty and Coach Rhule and the coaching staff here. They've made this transition smooth. They told me from the jump that hey this is your team and guys will go as I go. Just being around the guys a couple days already you see them feeding off my energy and I'm feeding off their energy, so it definitely feels like my team," Bridgewater said.

One of the main topics of conversation since Bridgewater signed with the Panthers is the fact that he will take over where former Panthers quarterback Cam Newton left off.
