Teddy Bridgewater buys mother pink escalade

NFL prospect Teddy Bridgewater’s mother said she had to carry around her son’s birth certificate when he was eight years old.

No one believed he was that young, that tall and that good of a football player.

This week, Bridgewater will be sure-fire top ten pick in the NFL Draft.

Bridgewater’s journey to the NFL Draft is depicted in an online mini-documentary released Tuesday by Cadillac.  The doc, “Teddy Bridgewater: A Promise to Rose,” was directed by Spike Lee.

It centers on Bridgewater’s rise to stardom, stemming back from his days at Miami Northwestern Senior High School in Miami and then to Louisville.  His family and friends are also heavily featured, and the doc culminates with Bridgewater fulfilling a promise he made to his mom back in the third grade: purchasing her a brand new pink Cadillac Escalade.

Bridgewater’s mother, Rose Murphy, had been diagnosed with breast cancer, so Bridgewater chose the color pink to honor her.

With a little help from  Cadillac and NFL money on the horizon — he finally made it happen.
