In response to joepatsfan111111's comment:
I say yes. he will be cheap if cut. there is no RB market.
Ridley can be the power type between the tackles RB 15 carries a game and then give CJ2K 7-10 carries a game and he'll boom some big ones eventually.
he also is a dangerous screen catcher.

Titans very likely to release RB Chris Johnson next week after failed trade attempts. Would draw strong interest as FA as DeSean Jackson did
Yes, but it's up to Chris Johnson. It's that simple. 1 year deal, welcome. If not, no thanks.
This was the kind of an RB I was talking about in the Blount thread, where I found it odd that BB didn't make more of an effort for a known commodity in Blount, which would lead an intelligent person to believe BB has something cooking either with a team in cap hell like Tenn after Johnson took them to the cleaners a few years back off the lockout, or BB has a trade for a CB in place.
Ideally, the only way to upgrade from Blount would be to get a pass catching RB if they are to improve in the skill set from Blount.
Bolden is a good hammer of sorts, IMO, when healthy and he can catch the ball.
Ridley, same deal. Vereen does not do that, nor would Chris Johnson, but at least with Johnson and a Vereen, you could have some perimeter speed and RBs who could all run behind zone blocking here as well.
Blount could as well, but his flaw was pass receiving. They simply would never throw to him.
