Last week, Ridley announced on Twitter that he would be stepping away from football to focus on his mental health.
Ridley, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2018 out of Alabama. He’s currently entering the fourth year of his four-year, $10,900,732 contract that included a $6,007,804 signing bonus.
The Falcons exercised Ridley’s fifth-year option this offseason which will cost Atlanta $11.116 million fully guaranteed in 2022.
In 2021, Ridley has appeared in five games for the Falcons and caught 31 passes for 281 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
