News: Ridley, Shane Vereen, and Brandon Bolden are all entering the final year of their contracts with the Patriots, ESPN.com reports. Impact: Given that reality, it's not surprising that the Patriots drafted the versatile James White in the fourth round of May's NFL draft. Stephen Houston, Jonas Gray, and Roy Finch are also around as depth options, but this coming season, it's not hard to imagine a scenario in which Ridley reclaims his role as the heavy-lifter in the Patriots' backfield, with Vereen's pass-catching ability likely ensuring him a key role in the team's offense as well. White figures to slot in primarily as Vereen insurance out of the gate, but he's already impressed early on in camp, so he could factor in as well. Of course, in order for Ridley to cement a key role in 2014, he'll need to re-prove his ability to hold on to ball after fumbling issues led to him ceding carries to to the bruising LeGarrette Blount (now with Pittsburgh) last season.(RotoWire, )
