Bridgewater, who is from Miami, met with the Dolphins at their team facility on Wednesday. To compound this development, Dianna Russini of ESPN has reported that while the Saints are still confident they will sign Bridgewater, a deal is not imminent.

If Payton stays with the Saints, the plan is for Bridgewater to eventually take over as the team's starting quarterback.

The Dolphins will likely release Tannehill with a June 1 designation in order to save $18.75 million in salary-cap space. The Dolphins would give Bridgewater a chance to start immediately and potentially earn a much more lucrative contract in the near future.

Miami intends to draft a future franchise quarterback in the 2019 or 2020 National Football League drafts, and hopes Bridgewater could bridge the gap.

Bridgewater was the last pick of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Prior to his injury Bridgewater was 17-11 as a starter with the Vikings in two impressive seasons to start his career.

Bridgewater also seemed to acknowledge the unusual symmetry his return has with Brees' arrival in New Orleans. But he ultimately chose to stay put in New Orleans, where he spent last season after the Saints traded a third-round pick to acquire him and a sixth-rounder from the New York Jets.
