Ran Carthon reveals: Calvin Ridley pursuit initially deemed a “pipe dream”

Last month, there were rumors circulating that wide receiver Calvin Ridley would be signing with the Titans. Many people were surprised by this news as they thought the Jaguars and Patriots were the front-runners for his services. However, it turns out that even the Titans hadn’t initially believed they could make a move for Ridley due to budget constraints.

General Manager Ran Carthon expressed his surprise at how things played out. He mentioned that the team’s plan to acquire Ridley was more of a pipe dream due to financial limitations. However, when several Titans players left for other teams in the opening hours of free agency, Carthon, president of football operations Chad Brinker, and head coach Brian Callahan began discussions on making a push for the wide receiver.

After sleeping on it, the team decided to go for it the next morning. The swiftness of the deal was highlighted by team owner Amy Adams Strunk calling Carthon to confirm if it had been finalized while he was on another call with Ridley congratulating him on the agreement.

Carthon credited the teamwork within the Titans organization for getting the deal done and expressed hope that it would lead to a successful season under Callahan’s leadership.
