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

The Titans have just secured the services of wide receiver Calvin Ridley, a surprise move that caught many off guard. The Jaguars and Patriots were believed to be the top contenders for his signature, but in the end it was the Titans who emerged victorious.

General Manager Ran Carthon admitted that the team’s initial plan to acquire Ridley was more of a pipe dream due to budget constraints. However, when a couple of 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 discussions on making a push for the wide receiver.

After sleeping on it, the team decided to go for it 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 the deal 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.
