Calvin Ridley: Back to Himself?

Jaguars WR Calvin Ridley has spent over a year away from football since his suspension in 2021, but if training camp videos and reports have been any indicator, it doesn’t appear the time off has been affecting him the way it would most people.

In his last 33 games played dating back to the 2019 season, Calvin Ridley has garnered at least 8 targets 21 separate times. He’s also had less than 6 targets in a game just four times in that span – in other words, Ridley has seen at least 6 targets in 27 of his past 31 games played. All while competing with Julio Jones and dealing with a past-his-prime Matt Ryan at QB.

One could argue that his target competition, while there’s plenty of it, doesn’t match the quality he worked against in Atlanta. And with Trevor Lawrence set to take the next step at QB, Ridley should continue to push those numbers upward and see plenty of targets in the Jaguars offense in 2023.
