LATEST: Detroit Lions Quarterback Retiring After Heartbreaking Loss To 49ers

The Detroit Lions’ historic postseason run came to an end this past weekend when they suffered a tough loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game.

Head coach Dan Campbell made several dubious decisions to go for it on fourth down, and Detroit was unable to execute adequately in the second half despite holding a commanding 24-point lead at the intermission.

Many in the NFL world were shocked to learn after the game that the veteran quarterback for the Lions is likely to retire this year.

Detroit Lions Quarterback Retiring

Teddy Bridgewater, a quarterback for Detroit and a journeyman in the NFL, is anticipated to have played his final NFL game following his 2014 draft selection. In 2023, Bridgewater served as Jared Goff’s backup and has played for multiple teams. In addition to the veteran quarterback’s earlier declaration that 2023 would be his last season, a picture of Bridgewater and his head coach leaving the field together surfaced on social media.

REFLECTION ON CAREER

I was young and I was trapped in this lifestyle thinking that I was a football player 24-7, and when I got hurt I realized that I’m only a football player for three hours on a Sunday afternoon. Outside of that, I’m Theodore Bridgewater, so it just put everything into perspective and it really helped me not even have to think about not being a starter (anymore).
It’s like, ‘Man, I still got purpose.’ And my purpose is bigger than the game of football. football is just a platform that I have.

STATS

Throughout his career, he has accumulated 15,120 throwing yards, 75 touchdowns overall, and three seasons with more than 3,000 yards passing.
