Stevan Ridley wrote a heartfelt goodbye message to the Jets and let the football world know his next destination: Detroit.
“New York, I hate that I couldn’t do more for you this past year, but the opportunity ya’ll gave me after my injury to do what I love the most … I can never put a price on,” the free-agent running back posted on social media Friday.
A former third-round pick of the Patriots in 2011, Ridley’s promising career in New England was derailed by ball security issues and a torn ACL he suffered during the 2014 season.
One would think Ridley would have a chance to take over the role left by Joique Bell as a between-the-tackles rusher on the Lions. Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick remain from last year, but are similar in playing style – pass catching backs with outside speed.
