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

News broke last month that wide receiver Calvin Ridley would be joining the Titans, surprising many as the Jaguars and Patriots were thought to be his top contenders. General Manager Ran Carthon was taken aback by how things played out, admitting that even the Titans hadn’t initially believed they could make a move for him.

Carthon revealed that the team’s plan to acquire Ridley was always a pipe dream due to budget constraints. However, with a few Titans players leaving for other teams in 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 speed of the deal was highlighted by 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 his team’s hard work and determination in getting the deal done and expressed hope that it would lead to a successful season under Callahan’s leadership.
