Saints’ Teddy Bridgewater wants to face Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey
Bridgewater has an opportunity to face Ramsey on Sunday, when the Jaguars host the Saints. However, he may not play, due to a back injury that kept him out of Week 5. If the Jaguars corner does, Bridgewater is ready, and knows the skill set he brings, as he watched him at Florida State.
“He’s an outstanding player,” Bridgewater said on Wednesday, via John Sigler of Saints Wire. “I’ve been following him since he was in college at Florida State so I know all about him. Like you said, when he’s out there, he brings that swagger to that defense, that confidence. If he’s playing this week, we’re looking forward to that matchup. We know that it’s going to be a fun one with him and our wide receivers and their entire secondary.”
Bridgewater and Ramsey are both confident guys. But, they show that in a different light. Ramsey exudes confidence, with his louder, more emotional demeanor. Bridgewater is quiet and lets his game do the talking.
“He is just a confident guy,” Bridgewater continued. “A lot of people see it as arrogance sometimes, but for me just being a true competitor, I see it as confidence. You love seeing guys exude that kind of confidence. Like I said, since he was at Florida State, he’s been a confident guy who believes in himself as we all should. You work hard, you train hard for one reason, to show that you can play this game and to help your team. He’s one of those guys who you just have to root for just from the confidence that he exudes and the transfer to the football field.”
Though Ramsey playing in Week 6 would make Bridgewater’s job more difficult, he welcomes it.
