Report: Bridgewater to visit Foxboro Wednesday
April 2, 2014, 12:15 am

Johnny Manziel isn't the only top quarterback prospect meeting with the Patriots on Wednesday.

Teddy Bridgewater is also making a trip.

Bridgewater, a three-year starter at Louisville, had his best season as a junior in 2013 when he threw for 3,970 yards and 31 touchdowns with four interceptions. Bridgewater's Cardinals won the Sugar Bowl his sophomore year and the Russell Athletic Bowl his junior year.

The 6-foot-3 Bridgewater had what was described by many as a disappointing pro day a couple weeks ago, which could cause his stock to slip a bit.

It'll have to slip a lot for him to be available at the No. 29 position where the Patriots draft . . .

That's one reason why his visit - along with Manziel's - is interesting: Are the Patriots considering moving up in the draft to land one of these quarterbacks, if in fact one of them does slip enough to make them feel comfortable making a trade?

You can't rule it out, as the Pats have just two quarterbacks on their roster in Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett, with Mallett heading into the final season of his contract.

NFL Network was first to report the news.
