Talk about a coincidence for Calvin Ridley.
Outside of watching actual NFL games, the NFL is driven by off the field activity, whether it be the NFL Draft, controversies throughout the season, but one of the most fun times of the NFL season the free agency period and the activity at the trade deadline. And with a ton of trades taking place Tuesday before the 4:00 p.m. ET deadline, plenty of action took place. In fact it was a record year for trades at the deadline.
Wide receiver Calvin Ridley was dealt by the Atlanta Falcons to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
In case you forgot, Ridley is serving a suspension by the NFL for betting on NFL games during the 2021 season. One specific game he bet on wasThe Atlanta Falcons to cover the spread against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now that’s ironic.
The best part about the Jaguars trading for Calvin Ridley is that Ridley is currently suspended for betting on the Falcons to cover against the Jaguars last season.

The irony doesn’t stop there. It was the Hard Rock Sportsbook in Miami that reported Calvin Ridley. So, this move to Florida sure is going to be something, right?
Anyways, the Jaguars got a stud receiver. They’ll just have to wait until Ridley’s suspension is over before they can start betting on him.
