Patriots running backs wear onesies for team unity (Picture)
Patriots running back Stevan Ridley is only in his second year with the team, but that doesn’t mean he can’t act as a team leader. The LSU product got his friends at California Christiania Republic to send him several onesies, and he convinced his teammates to put them on. From left-to-right in the pic above, you’re looking at Jeff Demps, Danny Woodhead, Shane Vereen, Brandon Bolden, Ridley, and James Devlin.
“It’s just kind of a small joke to try and get some smiles on faces around the locker room,” Ridley said, per the Boston Herald. “It’s a team thing. I tried to get my running backs coach (Ivan Fears) one but he wasn’t going for it. The running backs pulled together as a unit and like Bill (Belichick) says, it’s all about the team. I can’t be the only one, so I had to get the rest involved.
Teammates say Stevan Ridley looked like an angry Telletubby. I think they all look funny. But hey, when you’re underachieving for a season, why not try anything to get going?
