Perhaps best known during his season with the Jets as the running back Todd Bowles opted make his featured back in a week 17 must-win in Buffalo, a game that the Jets would lose 22-17 with Ridley finishing with 9 carries for 29 yards. On the season, Ridley ran the ball 36 times for 90 yards, an average of 2.5 YPC.
Ridley generated little interest as a free agent last off-season before landing in Atlanta with the Falcons where he appeared in 1 game, carrying the ball 3 times for 7 yards.
