It's possible that there's a Louisville fan out there who is holding out hope that no matter what happens in 2013, Teddy Bridgewater will return in 2014 for his senior season. And I suppose that's possible, even if Bridgewater would likely be a first-round draft pick in the NFL next spring, but it's not likely.
It's even less likely when you find out that Bridgewater has taken out an insurance policy on himself.

Yeah, while that's a very smart move for Bridgewater to make, as it protects him in case something terrible happens, it's also a good indicator he doesn't plan to return to school next season. Athletes generally don't take out these kind of insurance policies unless they're planning to go pro in the near future.
I just hope that Teddy can resist the urge to throw himself down a flight of stairs in the meantime, because $10 million is a lot of money, and I'm pretty sure every college kid in the country would fall down some stairs for $10 million. I know I would have.
Hell, I'd do it right now.
