Teddy Bridgewater might be on his way back to the Vikings with a stronger arm and higher football IQ.

After mandatory minicamp practice Tuesday, second year wide receiver Laquon Treadwell said Bridgewater looks "like he was never hurt."

"He looks great, really great. It's like he was never hurt," Treadwell said. "That's his God-given talent, and he's a worker, he's a fighter. He showed us a lot just off the small time we've seen him. For him to bounce back so fast, that's a blessing."

Treadwell said Bridgewater's arm seems stronger than it was before he blew out his knee last August.

"Just the way he gets the ball out. He's getting the ball out before you're breaking," he said. "He told me he spent a lot of time studying film. A lot of things he was messing up on he looks 10 times better this year."

More from Treadwell: "He's out here working hard, he's looking night and day. Even better from last year if you ask me. He's strong-minded, he's just ready to overcome that obstacle."

Bridgewater still hasn't been cleared to practice and there's no timetable for his return.
