- Bledsoe drops back for a pass during his playing days.
By the time he retired in 2007, Bledsoe finished with 44,611 passing yards and 251 touchdown passes—which currently puts him at 15th and 21st all-time among quarterbacks. He still holds the record for most pass completions in a non-overtime game with 45.
While he's not slinging touchdowns anymore, Bledsoe currently owns and operates Bledsoe Family Winery with his wife Maura, which just opened its new location here in Bend at the Box Factory, their first store outside of Walla Walla.
