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

Last month, news broke that wide receiver Calvin Ridley would be joining the Titans, surprising many as the Jaguars and Patriots were believed to be the top contenders for his services. General Manager Ran Carthon admitted that he was caught off guard by how things played out, noting that even the Titans hadn’t initially thought they could make a move for Ridley.

Initially, Carthon revealed that the team’s plan to acquire Ridley was just a pipe dream due to budget constraints. However, with a couple of Titans players leaving for other teams in the opening hours of free agency, Carthon, president of football operations Chad Brinker, and head coach Brian Callahan began discussing making a push for the wide receiver.

After sleeping on it, the team decided to go all-in on Ridley the next morning, and things moved quickly from there. 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 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.
