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.

Bridgewater, 26, agreed to a one-year $7.5 million deal that is worth up to $12.5 million with incentives, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. 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.

Bridgewater, who was an unrestricted free agent, was expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints after declining Miami's offer on Tuesday.

The Dallas Cowboys haven't signed any big free agents in the 2019 National Football League offseason, but they might be playing a major role in the decision of the best quarterback on the market. Brees' choice also came down to the Saints and Dolphins - the irony of which was not lost on Bridgewater as he tweeted about his decision. Bridgewater would have at least competed for the starting role with Ryan Tannehill.
