Teddy Bridgewater shares Joakim Noah's dislike of Cleveland

Teddy Bridgewater ended up being drafted with the final pick of the first round at Radio City Thurdsay night, with the Minnesota Vikings giving the quarterback a chance in the pro league.

Many thought he may be disappointed with seeing his name fall down the board in the run up to the Draft and would have jumped at the opportunity to link up with any of the teams looking for a QB with a higher pick.

Apparently not however, with Bridgewater telling Dan Patrick that he specifically did not want to end up in Cleveland:

"I actually told my agent that's not the place where I wanted to be," the former Louisville signal-caller revealed on Patrick's show Tuesday.

Bridgewater's quarterback rival in the 2014 class, Johnny Manziel, of course ended up being taken by the Browns with the 22nd pick and Cleveland coach Mike Pettine recently laughed off suggestions he had considered opting for Bridgewater prior to the big day.

It looks then that both parties have ended up happy with the situation, with Johnny Manziel likely glad too to have found a home after seeing his own name fall last Thursday.

Bridgewater's comments towards Cleveland are in a similar vein to those of Chicago Bulls NBA star Joakim Noah who told everyone back in 2010 that "Cleveland sucks":

""You like it? You think Cleveland's cool? I never heard anybody say I'm going to Cleveland on vacation. What's so good about Cleveland?" Noah said ahead of a Bulls-Cleveland Cavaliers game.
