Richie Grant on Desmond Ridder: 'He's one of the hungriest guys in the building'


Falcons’ safety Richie Grant stopped by Dukes & Bell Wednesday following team OTAs. Grant expressed optimism about the team and their future following a very productive offseason. He also spoke on Desmond Ridder’s expectations as QB 1.

“That’s probably one of the hungriest guys in the building. The man does not leave the building. He’s grinding and trying to get prepared to lead this team. We know he’s going to come out and perform because of the work he’s putting in now,” Grant explained.

Ridder will face an immediate test Week 1 opposed by No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young and the Carolina Panthers.
