The Facts: Ridley, who was selected with the 26th overall pick in the 2018, draft is expected to have his fifth-year, $11.116 million option picked up by the team.
Diehards Line: Ridley caught 90 of 143 targets (62.9 percent) last season for 1,374 yards and nine touchdowns as the Falcons went 4-12. Ridley has caught 217 passes for 3,061 yards and touchdowns. He was named to the Pro Football Writers of America's All-Rookie team in 2018. With Falcons' GM Terry Fontenot taking calls on the possible availability of Julio Jones, it's clear the Falcons view Ridley as their future at their position.
