Report: Patriots, Ridley haven’t had any contract talks

stevan ridleyAlbert Breer of the NFL Network reported on Wednesday night that the Patriots and Stevean Ridley’s reps haven’t talked about a contract extension as his current deal is set to expire next offseason.

Per Breer, a motivated Ridley is a little lighter and faster this offseason and is focusing on fixing his fumbling woes. With Blount out of the picture, Ridley is a good bet to lead New England’s backfield in carries for a third consecutive season.

The biggest with Ridley right now is that he fumbled the ball way too much in 2013.  He has to prove that he only had a down year and 2014 will be different.
