Wide receiver Calvin Ridley has something extra to celebrate on July 4.
Ridley’s agents announced that he has agreed to terms on his rookie deal with the Falcons. Ridley Matt Slauson Jersey , who was selected with the 26th overall pick, has a four-year deal with a team option for a fifth season.
Ridley caught 224 passes for 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns over three seasons at Alabama, which helped make him the second receiver off the board in April.
The rookie is expected to join Julio Jones in the lineup for the Falcons early in his career Jack Johnson Jersey , although it remains to be seen if Jones will be joining Ridley early in training camp. Jones did not attend offseason work with the Falcons and is looking for a reworked deal of his own.
With Ridley signed, there are now 15 unsigned picks around the league. Eleven of those players were first-round picks.
Yes, we know that Toronto is one of the Original Six and that playing for such a historical, legendary team comes with certain expectations. And yes Youth Jaleel Scott Jersey , we know that living and playing in Canada might not be every NHL player's first choice. But for those who do live and play the nation's favorite sport in the nation's most populated, most exciting city? They better give us a damn good show.
Seriously, though. It's not really a surprise that an ESPN poll showed that hockey players' no-trade clauses show that they want to live/play ABC. Anywhere But Canada.聽And can you blame them? The average temperature in January and February is -3 degrees Celsius/27 degrees Fahrenheit. The stereotype is that all Torontonians ever do is complain. Crime rates are not great - it ranks 14th on the list of most dangerous cities in the country. Housing is crazy expensive, with affordability reaching its lowest point ever this year.
But! Toronto is a city that eats Customized Arizona Cardinals Jerseys , sleeps, and breathes its Maple Leafs. There was even a story about one Torontonian who had the Leafs emblem engraved on his tombstone. One site listed Toronto as the city with the second most loyal fanbase, only just tailing Montreal. Granted, they are a temperamental bunch who have been known to throw hissy fits (and food) when the boys in blue don't play up to standard Adidas Jonathan Drouin Jersey , but they did have a 13-year sellout streak. 13 YEARS!
So what the heck? With support like that, why on earth did these 15 guys hate being a Leaf so very much?
