Calvin Ridley is still a topic in the NFL. Many are wondering if this wide receiver will continue his career, but the most important thing right now is his mental health “We love the young man,” Blank said, as quoted by falcholic “He has had a great history in Atlanta.
We’d love him to stay in Atlanta. Whether or not he wants to do that — he may decide that he wants a fresh start someplace else." "We don’t know that. I don’t know that. I don’t have information to indicate that, but we’ll see how that plays out.
“We’ve been totally supportive in every way that we can be, both emotionally and financially in working with him as well as his agent. We’ll see, but I’m mostly concerned about him as a human being”.

His condition is still unknown, but everyone is hoping that Ridley will return to the field as soon as possible, because they really need such a player “At some point, there will be a sunset for him,” Blank told AtlantaFalcons.com on Wednesday, “but exactly when that is I really can’t tell you because I really don’t know”.
However, everyone on the team hopes that things will turn out as they should and that Calvin Ridley will continue his career in his team. “(Ryan) loves the game. He loves the Falcons. He loves the city and he wants to stay here,” Blank said.
“That’s a decision the coach and general manager will make. But we have no reason to think he won’t continue to be playing quarterback for us. Of course, his health is currently the primary thing, and support will not be lacking from the team and teammates “Great franchises have a successful transition from one quarterback to the next,” Blank said.
“We want to make sure we’re focused on doing the same thing. Coach understands that and so does our general manager”.
