The Vikings aren’t sure when or if quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be back on the field this year after last summer’s major knee injury, which likely made it easy for them to make a decision about their option on his contract for 2018. The option, which would set Bridgewater up to make more than $12 million, is guaranteed for injury only and the uncertainty about Bridgewater’s status makes it unsurprising to see Tom Pelissero of USA Today‘s report that they’ve told Bridgewater they are passing on the option. There was a previous report that the team was unlikely to exercise the option.
