  • Stevan Ridley: Released by Broncos
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ridley was released Friday by the Broncos, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver Ridley most recently carried the ball 11 times for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' preseason finale against the Cardinals, but it appears as though the team feels secure enough with its running-back depth to let the veteran tailback go. While he has a poor injury history, Ridley should still continue to get looks from other NFL teams, given his talent and experience.

  • Ridley rushed for 40 yards on 14 carries and added seven yards on three catches in Saturday's preseason win over the 49ers. For the second straight week, the yards-per-touch totals weren't great for Ridley, but he notably recorded more than twice as many touches as any other Bronco on Saturday. Likely competing with Jamaal Charles for a single roster spot, Ridley's performance in recent weeks has allowed him to build a lead in the job battle that the more accomplished of the two veterans could have trouble closing.

  • Broncos' Stevan Ridley: Continues to impress
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ridley was cutting well during Denver's first joint practice in San Francisco, Troy Renck of Denver 7 ABC reports. Ridley wasn't flashy in the Broncos' preseason matchup against the Bears, but garnered first-team reps and has reportedly impressed in camp. With a number of young options on the team, Ridley is likely competing with Jamaal Charles for one roster spot. Charles is the bigger name of the two, but is reportedly still shaking off rust and won't play until the third preseason game. Ridley has an opportunity to game some momentum relative to his veteran counterpart this week in San Francisco that Charles might have trouble catching up to with limited time remaining.

  • Broncos' Stevan Ridley: Gets some time with the ones
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ridley rushed for 17 yards on eight attempts in Thursday's preseason win over Chicago. The stats don't look pretty for Ridley, but when he got them might. Ridley first entered the game when many of Denver's starters were still on the field. The veteran has reportedly impressed in practice and a few yards and a cloud of dust might be more appetizing than what Jamaal Charles -- who did not play Thursday as he recovers from last season's knee surgeries -- is currently offering. A key stat as the regular season approaches is that Ridley's cap hit is half that of Charles', per Over the Cap. If Denver is just looking for a veteran to fill in until Devontae Booker is healthy enough to play, Ridley may make more sense from a financial perspective.

  • Ridley is showing impressive burst and cutting ability in camp, Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan reports. Lammey and many others can be forgiven for selling Ridley short, as the veteran back hasn't topped four yards per carry or 400 yards in a season since 2013. Last year, he managed just three carries for a Falcons team that loves running the ball. Now, showing that he still has gas in the tank and making Denver's final roster are two very, very different things. C.J. Anderson is the starter, and young De'Angelo Henderson and fullback Andy Janovich are appealing because they can contribute on both offense and special teams. If the Broncos carry just four backs, it might come down to Ridley versus Jamaal Charles, and even then, the winner might just be keeping Devontae Booker's seat warm for when the second-year back returns early in the season.
