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?
