His average of $2.72 million makes him a decent earner for average wide receivers in the National Football League.

Ridley might be older than a lot of players but he is still on his rookie contract. That means, he is due to receive a bumper pay rise on the next contract he negotiates for himself. Out of his $10.9 million, he made sure to get $8.45 million of it fully guaranteed by the Falcons. If he manages to meet all his other incentive targets, he will have made enough to shop himself around the league for an amazing offer.

If Ridley manages to stay healthy and perform at the level he is currently, he could easily surpass the $50 million mark in net worth soon. The idea is to save more than you spend which most young athletes don’t understand.

But Ridley is a bit older, more mature and has to worry about taking care of his family, especially his wife and young daughter. He will need to stay away from luxury purchases like many of his NFL colleagues but can still enjoy a good life with the money he has made till now.

Calvin Ridley Football Career

Calvin Ridley played in the same league as Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown and Oakland Raiders cornerback Trayvon Mullen, while attending high school. He was a five-star recruit, despite playing only three games due to Florida’s age restrictions. He earned a scholarship to the University of Alabama to play under Nick Saban.

Ridley did not have to wait for playing time and won the National Championship in his first season against Clemson. He led the SEC in receptions with 89. He won his second championship in his junior year, recording four receptions for 32 yards to help force overtime in the 26–23 victory.

The 27-year-old chose to forego his senior season and declared for the NFL draft. The Atalanta Falcons drafted him 26th overall to hand him his debut against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Shockingly, Ridley announced in 2021 that he was stepping away from football due to mental health reasons. He finished the campaign with 31 receptions for 281 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.

Here are his career highlights –

  • Second-team All-Pro (2020)

  • First-team All-SEC (2017)
