Bridgewater, 26, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft. He went 17-11 in two seasons as the Minnesota Vikings' starter before a broken leg changed the course of his career.
Bridgewater, who was an unrestricted free agent, was expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints after declining Miami's offer on Tuesday.
