New York Jets v New England Patriots

Former Patriots RB Stevan Ridley will sign a one-year deal with the New York Jets, according to NFL.com

Ridley spent the 2014 season on the IR, due to blowing out his knee in October against the Bills.

He played his first four seasons with the Patriots after the team drafted him in the 3rd round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

During his 2013 campaign Ridley carried the ball 178 times for 773 yards and 7 touchdowns in 14 games. He had 62 yards receiving on 10 catches. He also had 4 fumbles. During the team’s two playoff games he carried the ball 19 times for 69 yards and 2 touchdowns.

In his short 2014 season, Ridley carried the ball 94 times in 6 games for 340 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also had 4 receptions for 20 yards.

His best season was in 2012 when he carried the ball 290 times for 1,263 yards and 12 touchdowns. He did fumble the ball 4 times, but only lost 2 of them. He also added 33 more rushing attempts for 152 yards and 1 touchdown with 1 fumble during the team’s 2 postseason games.

He’s appeared in 52 games for the Patriots during his 4 years in Boston. He’s rushed it 649 times for 2,817 yards and 22 touchdowns. He fumbled it 8 times with 5 of them lost. He’s caught 23 passes for 146 yards and 1 fumble.

Ridley was a fun player to watch also a frustrating one, but thanks for the memories and best wishes!
