He had no trust in him, presumably because of the pre-SB fumbling issues.
This will be his first offseason to work with the team (don't forget the lockout), BJGE is gone, and Woodhead is definitely not a feature back.
Ridley looked very good to me. Ran with conviction, not afraid of contact, good burst, quick decision making...I liked what I saw, and am looking forward to seeing more.
That being said, Vereen was the second RB taken in the draft, and seemingly the first on the Pats board (seeing as how they passe dup the chance to take the other RB...who's name is escaping me, went to NO and wasn't anything special year 1).
I could honestly see a failry even split between those 2, with Woodhead as the new Faulk (ie, 3rd down back). Maybe they bring in a vet for depth, but I see no reason to bring in a high profile guy...though I do love me some Stewart from Carolina.
