Ridley signed with the Steelers in December after running back James Conner suffered a season-ending injury. He notched 26 carries for 108 yards and a touchdown in the final two games of the season.

He began his career with the New England Patriots, winning Super Bowl XLIX, and has also played for the New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons.

Terms of their contracts were not released.
