Vikings decline QB Teddy Bridgewater's fifth-year option
- Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater ranked second in the NFL during the 2015 season in accuracy when the pocket was kept clean (82.8 percent) as well as when he was under pressure (72.8 percent).
- His passer rating of 103.4 when throwing the ball within 2.5 seconds or less of the snap was 10th in 2015.
- The much-maligned offensive line was worse at pass blocking efficiency in 2015 (71.4) for Bridgewater than it was in 2016 (75.5).
- Bridgewater has the best average adjusted accuracy, which takes into account dropped passes, throw aways, spikes and yards in the air, of the 2014 quarterback class and third-best in the NFL over that span.
