As Teddy Bridgewater was making the rounds through the ESPN “carwash” today, it was reported he has taken out a $10 million insurance policy to protect himself in case of severe injury. This falls in line with what many projected high draft picks do, but the interesting part is these policies are typically taken out during the prospect’s final season on the collegiate level. While Teddy technically has two years of eligibility remaining, if he just stays in the neighborhood of where he’s currently projected to be drafted (top 3 in almost all mock drafts), he is a lock to leave Louisville after this season.
This is a no-brainer for Teddy and his family. Assuming he has the type of season we all think he will, the only thing that will prevent him from being one of the first few names called on the first night of the 2014 NFL Draft is a catastrophic injury. There is no reason not to take out an insurance policy to protect himself.
Remember, in 2006 Michael Bush was well on his way to being a first round draft pick (and Heisman finalist in my opinion), but that ended in the 3rd quarter of the first game of the season.
