Falcons GM Fontenot not ready to give up on Ridley for 2022

ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot said Tuesday he's not ready to make 2022 plans to be without Calvin Ridley, the team's top wide receiver who missed the final 11 games of the season while addressing mental health issues.

Fontenot and his staff have launched their offseason which will include player evaluations and ranking needs for the NFL draft on April 28-30 and free agency. The Falcons have the No. 8 overall pick in the first round of the draft.

Ridley's immediate and long-term future with the Falcons remained uncertain for the final two months of the season after he was a last-minute scratch before the team's 19-13 loss to Carolina on Oct. 31.
