Like Taylor Swift did before big announcement, Teddy Bridgewater deletes all of his Instagram posts

This has to be the tease to the big news, right?!
Publish date:

A week ago, Taylor Swift mystified her fans by deleting all of her tweets and Instagram posts. She deleted everything with the purpose of letting her fans know something big was coming. 

On Thursday, she dropped a highly anticipated new song. 

Now, it appears Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is taking a page from Swift's playbook. 

On Friday, Bridgewater deleted all of his previous Instagram posts and replaced it with a new one – a photo of blackness with the caption "Loading..." at the bottom left. 

"Fresh start. The light at the end of the tunnel does exist," Bridgewater wrote in his post. 

Wednesday will mark the one-year anniversary of Bridgewater's much-discussed knee injury, and he hasn't played in a game since. 

Does Bridgewater's Instagram post signal the end of rehab and the beginning of his comeback on the field? It's a question that needs to be asked, especially since rumors were swirling all week that Bridgewater was expected to be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list. 

The Vikings play their first home game of the preseason on Sunday night against the 49ers. Perhaps it will mark the return of Bridgewater, too?

Stay tuned.
