Bridgewater, 26, was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft.
It was clear early in the 2019 negotiating window that few opportunities were out there for Bridgewater, so returning makes sense.
Bridgewater also seemed to acknowledge the odd symmetry his return has with Brees' arrival in New Orleans. Bridgewater is also from Miami.
The Dolphins confirmed the meeting later Wednesday.

The bribes allegedly came through Singer's admissions consulting company, Edge College & Career Network. Those include Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman and TPG Growth founder Bill McGlashan.
A source has told The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr. that Bridgewater is well aware that there's no guarantee Payton will still be in New Orleans after the upcoming season. After signing with the New York Jets and playing well in last year's preseason, he was traded to New Orleans.
According to multiple reports, the Dolphins attempted to land Tyrod Taylor before he signed with the Los Angeles Chargers.
Bridgewater is apparently willing to wait to find the ideal long-term fit, even though he has started just one game over the past three seasons.
