Steelers Re-Sign RB Stevan Ridley

Running back Stevan Ridley has re-signed with the Steelers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). It’s a one-year deal for the veteran. 

At this point, Ridley has an extensive collection of NFL jerseys. Over the course of seven NFL seasons, he has suited up for the Patriots, Jets, Falcons, and Steelers with stops in between with the Lions, Colts, Broncos, and Vikings.

Ridley is best known for his run with the Pats, which included a stellar 2012 season. In that campaign, he amassed more than 1,200 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. Unfortunately, injuries have slowed him down ever since.

The 29-year-old will duke it out with James Conner, Fitzgerald Toussaint, and James Summers for a spot behind star Le’Veon Bell in 2018.

      And also i think most steelers fans could care less what they do with Bell.

      1st rnd pick now or one more prime year and let him walk.. Doesnt make a big diff.

      Just no one wants him signed long term. He had his offer, didnt take it, wasnt a smart offer in the first place…
      Have fun on a 5-win team. The end.

    I’m of the same school of thought. I recognize he’s an elite level RB, but historically the Steelers have been excellent at evaluating their skill position guys (see W. Parker, S. Holmes, M. Wallace, etc.). Bell could have 2-3 high end years left but he’s not taking a 2-3 year deal so I say let him walk. Spend the money elsewhere. He’s an off-season hiccup away from being suspended for a whole year.
