Steelers signed RB Stevan Ridley.
With James Conner on injured reserve, Ridley joins Fitzgerald Toussaint as one of just two backs behind Le'Veon Bell. Were Bell to go down, Ridley would be thrust into work. The ex-Pat has just 39 carries since 2014. Tue, Dec 19, 2017 02:50:00 PM

Vikings released RB Stevan Ridley.

Ridley made it four days on the 53-man roster. He's been cut loose to make room for WR Michael Floyd, who is coming off suspension. Ridley has notched 39 carries since the end of the 2014 season.

Vikings signed RB Stevan Ridley.

Ridley worked out along with a handful of other free agents Wednesday. While he has had success in the past, Ridley has looked past it his last several stops. He is just a depth signing and not a real threat to Latavius Murray's workload.

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley worked out for the Vikings on Wednesday.

Troymaine Pope, Bobby Rainey and Josh Rounds were also at Wednesday's workout. The Vikings are looking to add a ball-carrier after losing second-round rookie Dalvin Cook to a torn ACL. Ridley has been a nomad in recent years, spending time with five organizations since leaving the Patriots after the 2014 season. Even if Ridley signs, he'll merely be a depth option behind lead back Latavius Murray.

Broncos released RB Stevan Ridley.

All out of gas at age 28, Ridley has been bouncing around the league since the Patriots gave up on him. He was unable to get past sixth-round rookie De'Angelo Henderson in Broncos camp.

Broncos signed RB Stevan Ridley to a one-year contract.

The Broncos needed a camp body with Devontae Booker (wrist) sidelined. Simply not the same player since tearing his ACL in 2014, Denver will be Ridley's fifth team since he wasn't re-signed by the Patriots. He won't make the 53-man roster.

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley worked out for the Jets.

A Jet in 2015, 28-year-old Ridley was on the Falcons' active roster for one game last season. He simply hasn't been the same since tearing his ACL in 2014.

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday.

As did Jonas Gray, LaMichael James, Dominique Williams and Boom Herron. The Seahawks need a back in the worst way with Thomas Rawls re-joining their parade of injured runners. Ridley spent a month on the Falcons' 53-man roster earlier this season.

Falcons waived RB Stevan Ridley.

With Tevin Coleman back healthy, Ridley is no longer needed as depth. He played three snaps for Atlanta, rushing three times for seven yards. Ridley, 28 in January, is very close to falling completely out of the league.

Falcons signed RB Stevan Ridley.

RB Terron Ward has also been promoted from the practice squad. It means Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is going to miss Sunday's game against the Packers. Ridley couldn't crack the Colts' wafer-thin running back corps this summer, and is unlikely to see a touch behind Devonta Freeman this weekend.

Colts released RB Stevan Ridley.

Ridley lasted all of six days with the Colts, but it is possible he is brought back after veteran salaries guarantee Week 1. Ridley's release is theoretically good news for undrafted rookie Josh Ferguson, although he could still lose his roster spot to Robert Turbin and Jordan Todman.

Colts signed RB Stevan Ridley.

It's an acknowledgment of how desperately little the Colts have behind 33-year-old starter Frank Gore. Ridley couldn't beat out Zach Zenner in Detroit, and was cut after taking the ball nine times for 27 yards (3.0 YPC) in two preseason games. We'd say he doesn't have good roster odds, but his "competition" is Bob Turbin, Jordan Todman and Josh Ferguson. There's a decent chance he'll crack Indy's dilapidated running back corps.

The Colts are hosting free agent RB Stevan Ridley for a visit.

The Colts are desperate for running back depth, where career JAG Bob Turbin is currently the favorite for No. 2 duties behind Frank Gore. Josh Ferguson has fallen onto the roster bubble, while Jordan Todman never seems to be able to nail down an NFL home. Ridley, 27, probably isn't the answer. He has looked washed up in stints with the Jets and Lions since a 2014 ACL tear.

Lions released RB Stevan Ridley.

The writing was on the wall after Ridley played behind Zach Zenner, George Winn, and rookie Dwayne Washington this preseason. By releasing him now, the Lions have at least given Ridley a shot to latch on somewhere else -- and perhaps offset some of the $250,000 guaranteed they owe him -- but he has not proven to be an effective back since shredding his knee in 2014. The 27-year-old could be nearing the end. With Ridley gone, Zenner is now locked in as the big-back complement to Ameer Abdullah.
Thu, Aug 25, 2016 09:00:00 AM

Stevan Ridley earned 14 yards on five carries and caught his lone target for five yards Friday in the Lions’ preseason win over the Steelers.

Ridley was the fourth Lions running back to see the field after Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner and George Winn. It was a pedestrian effort for Ridley, who managed a long run of just six yards. Ridley will have to do better than that if he wants to leapfrog Zenner for No. 3 duties this year behind starter Ameer Abdullah and Riddick, who will serve as the Lions’ passing-down back.
