Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) -New Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater can't wait to start playing for his new team.

At one point during the pre-draft process Bridgewater was the number one ranked quarterback coming out, his stock dropped after he had a poor pro day when he didn't wore his usual throwing gloves.

Minnesota saw enough of the signal caller thru private workouts and visits to trade up to take him and Bridgewater says he's got plenty of motivation...

Teddy Bridgewater/Vikings Quarterback: “You can bet that. I talked with coach Zimmer a while back when I came here and he told me he loves guys that play with a chip on their shoulder. So after having that conversation with him and just experiencing last night, I'm glad to be a Viking, but you can best believe I'll play with a chip on my shoulder. I try not to compare myself to anyone because everyone is gifted and blessed with different skill sets. So I just try to do some things that other quarterbacks have been doing in the past and do some things that quarterbacks are still doing today that makes them successful..”
