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

Calvin Ridley’s decision to sign with the Titans came as a surprise to many, including the team’s general manager Ran Carthon. Initially, the Jaguars and Patriots were thought to be the front-runners for his services, but in the end, it was the Titans who emerged victorious.

Carthon admitted that the team’s plan to acquire Ridley was initially just a pipe dream due to budget constraints. However, with a few key players leaving for other teams on the first day of free agency, Carthon and head coach Brian Callahan saw an opportunity to make a move for the wide receiver.

After sleeping on it, the team decided to go for it and things moved quickly from there. The swiftness 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 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.
