Around the NFL: Calvin Ridley

Calvin Ridley hasn't been practicing for Atlanta, and yesterday we found out why. He recently underwent foot surgery, and is recovering from it. The Falcons maintain the procedure was minor (of course they do). I'm not going to be alarmist, but I think virtually any foot surgery needs to be taken seriously. He's expected to be fine for training camp, but it's definitely something to monitor.   more »

Factoid: Calvin Ridley

I'm participating in another slow draft, and when my pick came up at the end of the fourth round, 45 players in, the highest-ranked player on my board was Calvin Ridley. I took him, as the 16th wide receiver selected (he's in our top 10 at the position), leaving me to wonder if Atlanta's No. 2 can finish with No. 1 production.   more »
