This collaboration with a young quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and a star receiver in Antonio Brown just makes me smile. The Minnesota Vikings have a franchise quarterback on their roster and the Steelers have a franchise wide receiver on their roster.
Both athletes have been training together this offseason. This truly makes me happy to see a second-year quarterback learn the game with a “veteran” receiver in Antonio Brown. Together they should make each other better in many ways.
Bridgewater improved greatly in his second year with the Vikings. His statistics were:

Bridgewater just wants to improve every aspect of his game. The statistics from this year show that he is slowly becoming a better quarterback. He has been working out with several teammates and young players in Florida this summer.

This training will not only help Teddy Bridgewater but will also get Antonio Brown some help with another quarterback that is not Ben Roethlisberger. When Big Ben went down for four games in 2015, Brown struggled greatly. Hopefully the training with Bridgewater can help Brown learn some routes that will make him more comfortable if Ben does ever go down again for a short time.
