According to a report from ESPN, the Miami Dolphins are making a "late push" to land the former Louisville star. On Tuesday, Bridgewater reportedly was ready to turn down more money from the Dolphins to return to New Orleans and serve as the heir apparent to 40-year-old Drew Brees.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network first reported the move, noting that the Saints created $10.8 million in cap space to put towards re-signing backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The Saints have been relatively quiet this offseason, letting running back Mark Ingram go in free agent, while signing Latavius Murray, and kicker Will Lutz to a five-year extension.

While Saints fans were expecting to welcome Bridgewater back to the team, it looks like another National Football League team is making a play for him.

Miami is expected to release seven-year veteran Ryan Tannehill, who led the Dolphins to a 42-46 record as a starter since being drafted as their first-round pick in 2012. Tannehill is expected to be traded or released at some point. Yet, with his future in New Orleans up in the air, Bridgewater is taking a visit to Miami. But he suffered a devastating knee injury during a practice before the following season and lost his starting job.
