3DOWNNATION: BRIDGE TO WORKOUT FOR NFL'S GIANTS

Saskatchewan Roughrider quarterback Brandon Bridge has a workout scheduled with the New York Giants in December, per sources.

After signing with the Riders in August of last year, the Mississauga-born Bridge has shown intriguing potential, especially in 2017. Bridge started in Week 13 for the Riders in Hamilton and guided the team to a victory with 231 passing yards and three touchdowns. Two weeks later, the 25-year-old came off the bench to lead a comeback win against Toronto, finishing 20-of-28 for 292 yards and two touchdowns.

Overall, Bridge passed for 1,236 yards with a 66.6 completion percentage (92-of-138) and 10 touchdowns to just four interceptions while adding 20 carries for 127 yards and one touchdown on the ground. He sparked the Riders offence in the East Final, completing 11-of-21 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown in the team’s defeat. The TD toss was the first by a Canadian in a post-season game since Russ Jackson in the 1969 Grey Cup.

Bridge was originally drafted by the Montreal Alouettes in 2015. That same year he attended Dallas Cowboys rookie mini-camp but was not signed.

A pending free agent in February, Bridge has been in contract negotiations with the Riders.

“Definitely, I would love to stay here, but at the end of the day, it’s still a business,” Bridge said.

Saskatchewan’s head coach and general manager Chris Jones knows the Canadian signal caller’s talents well.

“He brings a lot of really big intangibles to the position,” Jones said. “He’s a dynamic young player.”

Now this tryout makes sense to me, not the Demski tryout in Minny

Yes, BB is good but no matter if he stays in Riderville or not. I think that Marquis Williams has the greatest upside of our present QB's & is a serious contender for QB #2. MW will require some playing time under his belt in 2018 before he can legitimately compete as a starter. He will be an elite QB if nurtured accordingly.

Go Riders!!

Brandon Bridge has talent. If he can land in a spot with an OC that designs and calls plays that compliment his strong points he'll do well. That's in either league, it's all on the OC and I'm not so sure McAdoo is the guy.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves now! Hardly a proven commodity here, guess the Giants QB situation is worse than it seems. Maybe get Eli some help with a better o-line.

I like bridge, but he’s a project. Throws like tebow.

You ask that ridiculous question every time you read something you don't like.

Bridge throws like Tebow??? I think Bridge has great mechanics. He releases high, fairly quickly (Tebow is as slow as it gets), and throws VERY hard.

(in southern accent) Don't the G Men know Kevin Glenn is our starter and that Brandon is our backup? lol

Gerry Teigrob said...

Well CJ wants Bridge to re-sign with us. But then again your opinion is of kittld value.

Axtually Bridge is much better than Glenn has ever been. Glenn is done as a starter...just stick a fork into him! It's all about Bridge now and not about Glenn anymore. He will play a backup role but that's about all. Bridge is our go to guy!
