Former #Patriots RB Stevan Ridley is signing with the #Jets, source said.

According to Rapoport, Ridley also had offers from the Redskins and Dolphins, but one of the deciding factors for him was the opportunity to play in OC Chan Gailey’s offensive system. Gailey has made several bum running backs look very good.  If you look at CJ Spiller under Chan Gailey he was a Pro Bowl running back.  If Gailey can help Ridley learn how to hold onto the ball, the Jets could have found themselves a very solid weapon. 

Ridley’s market was slow moving until the past few weeks when he visited with the Redskins, Jets, and Dolphins.
