Some of the beat writers in attendance at OTA's could not help but notice running back Stevan Ridley looked good today.
Stevan Ridley looks to be cutting and moving well in position drills, coming off knee injury. #jetsota— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) May 27, 2015
Stevan Ridley is moving very well in drills, recovering from ACL surgery #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) May 27, 2015
This is encouraging news as Ridley is coming off a torn ACL and a torn MCL. He is something of a wild card for the Jets. Ridley is young at 26. He has low usage with under 700 career touches from scrimmage. He also has a 1,200 yard rushing season under his belt. Ridley might be an important contributor on offense.
He also might not be a lock to make the team. The trade for Zac Stacy means there is a conceivable way Ridley could be a camp cut, particularly because he adds little in the passing game. He might need a strong showing. It is nice to see there are at least some encouraging signs in his recovery.
