Free agent running back Stevan Ridley had a workout for the Jets.
Jets worked out RB Stevan Ridley, who was with them in 2015, source said. He has interest from a few teams, as he's worked to get healthy.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) May 11, 2017
Ridley played for the Jets in 2015 but didn’t impress in limited carries. It seemed like he had not fully recovered from a serious knee injury he had suffered the year before. Considering the fact Ridley has been released by three teams in the year since he left the Jets, it is worth wondering whether he will ever be the same.
That would be a shame since he was a pretty good runner during his earlier years in the league with the New England Patriots. He is a one-time 1,200 yard, 12 touchdown running back in this league.
It cannot hurt to take a look at him. If he ever regains that old form, he could certainly help an offense. The last time he was productive in the NFL was 2013. That is a long time ago by professional football standards.
