Mr.11 Posted May 23 Share Posted May 23 https://www.si.com/nfl/jaguars/duval-insider-plus/jaguars-notebook-5-observations-on-calvin-ridley-and-more-from-ota-no-1 Calvin Ridley is still Calvin Ridley When it comes to playing wide receiver, Calvin Ridley is a bad, bad man. This much we all knew heading into the week, but it is still notable to see just how at home the former Pro Bowler looked in his first organized team practice since the 2021 season. When players are in shorts and helmets, it is usually more telling when they struggle as opposed to when they thrive, but it was easy to say Ridley had a strong day on Monday. Ridley simply moves differently than any other wide receiver on the field. The pacing and tempo in his routes, the quickness of his feet, and his ability change up his approach to routes even when he isn't getting the ball all stand out. So did two impressive catches he made on Monday, including one play where he plucked a fastball from Trevor Lawrence out of the air with ease. My summary: Ridley seems to be making a really good impression on his new teammates, coaching staff, and everyone that's watched him in action so far. He may be quickly ascending to be Trevor's favorite target, which bodes well for the Falcons and their prospective compensation.
