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

This month, the news broke that wide receiver Calvin Ridley would be joining the Titans, much to the surprise of many. While the Jaguars and Patriots were initially thought to be in contention for his services, it was ultimately the Titans who landed him.

Titans General Manager Ran Carthon expressed his shock at how things unfolded, particularly since even his own team hadn’t initially believed they would be able to make a move for Ridley due to budget constraints. However, after a couple of key Titans players left for other teams on the first day of free agency, Carthon, president of football operations Chad Brinker, and head coach Brian Callahan began discussing a plan to acquire Ridley.

The team worked quickly to make the deal happen and by the next morning had secured Ridley’s services. 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 attributed much of their success in landing Ridley to the strong teamwork within the Titans organization and expressed hope that it would lead to a successful season under Callahan’s leadership.
