The Jacksonville Jaguars have scheduled a second meeting and workout with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, a source said.
He also is scheduled to visit the Houston Texans next week. The Texans and Jaguars were among the teams that sent representatives to Bridgewater’s pro day at Louisville.
Bridgewater played three seasons for the Cardinals, amassing 9,817 passing yards and a .684 completion percentage. In his junior season, he connected on 71 percent of his passes, threw for 31 touchdowns and had a 169.7 passer rating. He entered last season as the unquestioned top quarterback prospect in college football after a sophomore season that included 3,718 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and a completion percentage of .685.
The Texans have the first pick in next month’s draft, and the Jaguars have the third. Although it’s possible each team uses its pick elsewhere, both have a need for a franchise quarterback, having traded away the players they had hoped would assume that role.
The Jaguars shipped Blaine Gabbert, the 10th overall pick in 2011, to the San Francisco 49ers, and the Texans sent Matt Schaub — their starter for the past seven seasons — to the Oakland Raiders.Previously covered Texans for Houston Chronicle and Jaguars for Florida Times-Union
