Patriots Cut Kyle Van Noy Ahead of Free Agency / Calvin Ridley Suspended For Season
NFL suspends Falcons WR Calvin Ridley for at least 2022 season for betting on games. There were a lot of trade rumors involving Ridley and a few teams including the Patriots and Browns. It’s an understatement to say this affects anything the Falcons wanted to do via trade. Two-years-ago Calvin Ridley was on the trajectory of being one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, and he was probably ready for a gigantic payday. After taking most of next season off, and now being suspended for 2022, the outlook of his career is in question.The Patriots released linebacker Kyle Van Noy, creating $4.1 million in salary cap savings. This was expected amongst many analysts and fans. This was clearly a cap saving move. New England has to free up money, expect more moves to happen - Contract extensions, cuts etc… Van Noy is far from being done in the NFL, but the 2019 version of Kyler Van Noy was much better for New England than the 2021 version. This is back-to-back season that Van Noy finds himself released before free agency. I'm sure he won't struggle to find a job somewhere.
