Ridley impressed new coach Doug Pederson during the first day of OTAs on Monday, Demetrius Harvey of the Florida Times-Union reports. "He's been here, he's been focused, engaged, doing the things we've asked him to do," Pederson said.
The 28-year-old was suspended for the entire 2022 campaign for violating the league's gambling policy and played in only five games during 2021 in order to focus on his mental health, but he now appears to be in top shape after being acquired by Jacksonville in November. Pederson also indicated Ridley has been active in the offseason program, which should put him in a strong position to establish an on-field rapport with quarterback Trevor Lawrence ahead of training camp.
