SJ - March 7, 2022

Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley left the team during the season to take care of his mental health.  While away he bet on games for a five day period in November 2021.  The NFL has suspended him for the entire 2022 season.

Shortly after Ridley's suspension was announced it was reported that he bet on Falcons games.

Ridley wasted little time and addressed the suspension by saying he only bet a total of $1,500 and doesn't have a gambling problem.  He then joked about his one year suspension.

Let's hope Ridley spends the free time getting his mind right.  It would be a shame if we look back after all of this time off and say what could have been.
