teddy bridgewaterWell,  the Vikings won’t waste any time in having rookie quarterback Teddy Bridewater take the first-team reps with the offense.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told NFL Media’s Albert Breer in an interview for Friday’s edition of “NFL Total Access” that the team’s first-round pick will take first-team reps on Day 1 and compete for the starting quarterback job.

“Teddy’s been great,” Zimmer said. “He’s had a good command of the offense. I like his leadership. I like his determination. He’s throwing the ball well. He’s got good, quick feet. I think he’s a good athlete. So he’s progressing at a good pace.”
