Everyone made the same joke about Patriots possibly adding Calvin Ridley

The New England Patriots have been linked to free agent wide receiver Calvin Ridley. The signing hasn’t even happened yet, but fans are already cracking jokes about the potential move.

The Patriots have reportedly offered Ridley a contract but remain in competition with his last team, the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Ridley is more than a year removed from his 2022 suspension for betting on NFL games. Fans saw the humor in Ridley potentially joining a roster that already has Kayshon Boutte, a Patriots receiver who was arrested in January for charges related to online gambling.

Boutte was selected by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He played in just five games for New England as a rookie, making two catches for 19 yards.

Gambling issues aside, Ridley could potentially be a strong addition to what was an uninspiring Patriots offense last season. Ridley played in all 17 games for the Jaguars, leading the team in receiving yards (1,016) and receiving touchdowns (8).

The Patriots, who hold the third pick in the upcoming NFL draft, are expected to select a new quarterback for next season. Ridley could prove to be a worthwhile gamble for a New England team in need of offensive playmakers.
