Instead, Ridley mentioned that he is more concerned about the fact that he needs to “go out there and be mistake-free.”
Ridley, 25, was expected to build on his successful 2012 campaign and solidify his role as New England’s No. 1 running back moving forward. However, Ridley struggled to hold on to the ball at times and saw guys like LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen cutting into his workload.
Blount wound up being the more consistently productive running back for the Patriots last season as he average five yards-per-carry and scored seven rushing touchdowns.
