Running Back Steven Ridley gets New York Jets logo tattooed on forearm

Running Back Steven Ridley gets New York Jets logo tattooed on forearm

After signing a one-year contract with the New York Jets on Wednesday, running back Steven Ridley apparently felt he had to commit to his organization even more.

So, he got a Jets tattoo on his right forearm.

Keep in mind he hasn’t even played a game, let alone practice for the Jets yet.

Did I mention he only signed a one-year deal?

Ridley’s right forearm also seems to be home to another tattoo, one of a New England Patriots logo, the Jets rival and Ridley’s former team.

New England didn’t seem too eager to re-sign Ridley this offseason when he became a free agent.

The 26 year-old only played in six games last year for the Patriots because of an ACL tear in a week six win over the Buffalo Bills.

In his four years in the NFL since he was drafted out of LSU, Ridley has racked up 22 touchdowns on 2,817 rushing yards, and has posted a career 4.3 yards per carry average.

We will just have to wait and see if Ridley’s tattoo ends up being a regrettable decision, or an artistic way to covey his dedication to first year coach Todd Bowles and Jets fans.
