Report: Calvin Ridley suspended for at least 2022 NFL season for gambling on games

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley reportedly has been suspended for at least the 2022 NFL season for gambling on games during the 2021 season.

Ridley played in just five games for the Falcons last season. He was away from the team for an extended period of time for personal reasons. He apparently gambled on NFL games during a five-day period while he was away from the team.

This is a major blow to Atlanta’s offense. The team had hoped to pair Ridley and Kyle Pitts together on offense after it traded Julio Jones away prior to the 2021 season. Now, the Falcons will have to move forward without Ridley for at least the 2022 campaign.

In five games last season, Ridley caught 31 of his 52 targets for 281 yards and two touchdowns. In his career, Ridley has amassed 248 catches for 3,342 yards and 28 touchdowns.

He was Atlanta’s No. 26 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
