Falcons WR Calvin Ridley suspended indefinitely through at least 2022 season for betting on NFL games


The NFL announced on Monday that it has suspended Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley indefinitely for betting on NFL games during the 2021 season. Ridley is suspended through at least the conclusion of the 2022 season. According to the NFL, Ridley placed bets during a five-day period in late November 2021, when he was away from the club's facility on the non-football illness list. The former first-round pick played in just five games in 2021 before leaving the club to focus on his "mental wellbeing."
