Bridgewater is expected to visit the Dolphins training facility on Wednesday night, according to a league source, one day after he rejected a two-year, $10 million offer to become the team's starting quarterback.
Bridgewater appeared to reference the anniversary of the Brees signing in a report shortly before the signing was reported.

That may not have been the case had Bridgewater signed in Miami.
The Dolphins are in need of a quarterback this upcoming season and Bridgewater is a Miami native.
After coming back from a gruesome knee injury that almost derailed his career, the former first-round pick finally has a chance to break the bank. The Dolphins would give Bridgewater a chance to start immediately and potentially earn a much more lucrative contract in the near future. But he ultimately made a decision to stay put in New Orleans, where he spent last season after the Saints traded a third-round pick to acquire him and a sixth-rounder from the New York Jets.
