The NFL released an awesome video Wednesday of New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater and the Saints pulled off a shocking win over the Seahawks this past Sunday, and the former Vikings draft pick was the man responsible for leading the way with Drew Brees out. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Following the major victory, Bridgewater had to fight back tears as he addressed the team and told them to “never take it for granted.”

Watch the awesome video below.

Damn, I thought I was going to need a tissue for myself during that speech. What a journey it’s been for Bridgewater.

Due to an injury suffered while he played for the Vikings, it looked like there was a very real chance he might never play again.

He bounced to the Jets, went to the Saints, and now led them to an unbelievable win over a very good Seattle Seahawks squad.

Teddy Bridgewater’s perseverance throughout his NFL career is truly something to behold. The man has stuck with the Saints, despite being able to probably get more playing time elsewhere, and now he’s reaping the rewards.

He seems like a hell of a good dude, and that’s the exact kind of person I’d want in my locker room.
