The New Orleans Saints released quarterback Tom Savage Saturday, five months after he was signed to compete for the top job backing up Drew Brees.
After spending the first four seasons of his career with Houston, Savage signed a one-year deal this offseason as a veteran complement to the unproven Taysom Hill behind Brees. But the Saints’ surprising trade for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made keeping Savage unnecessary.
After this move, it seems the Saints have found a suitable quarterback for when Drew Brees finally moves on. Teddy battled injuries since joining the league in 2016 but isn’t expected to play anytime soon.
This time should clear the way for a great season of recovery and rehab for the Quarterback. While we do realize Drew Brees has a full two years left on his contract, one can only sit and wonder what is next for the Saints after the departure of Drew. Maybe it’s time for Teddy to shine!
What do you think of this signing? Do you see Teddy leading the Saints into battle after the next two years?
