It’s fair to say that Bridgewater hasn’t had the elite career that many people expected. But the quarterback deserves credit for maintaining his place in the NFL after he overcame a ton of adversity. He had a decent first two seasons with the Vikings, including a Pro Bowl appearance (via Clutchpoints).
But then he tore his ACL during a no-contact play and missed the entire 2016 season. Many people doubted that he’d ever play again as the severity of his injury came to light. He sustained a lot of damage. But Bridgewater stormed back and continues to feature on NFL rosters.
