How Ran Carthon Turned a “Pipe Dream” into Pursuing Calvin Ridley

Shock and Awe: How the Titans Secured Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley in a Dazzling Free Agency Move

The Titans’ surprise signing of wide receiver Calvin Ridley last month has left many in the football world scratching their heads. Initially, it was thought that the Jaguars and Patriots were the leading contenders for Ridley’s services. However, after key players left for other teams on the first day of free agency, discussions arose among General Manager Ran Carthon, Chad Brinker, and Brian Callahan about making a move for the wideout.

Carthon revealed that even though they had initially viewed Ridley as part of their plan, they had initially seen it as more of a pipe dream due to financial constraints. However, with key players leaving, they realized they needed to act fast if they wanted to secure Ridley’s services. After sleeping on the decision, they ultimately decided to push for Ridley the following morning, leading to a swift agreement.

Team owner Amy Adams Strunk even called Carthon during negotiations, showing their commitment to securing the deal. Carthon credited the teamwork within the organization for making the deal happen and expressed hope for a successful season under Callahan’s leadership. The quick and unexpected acquisition of Ridley reflects the Titans’ willingness to adapt and pursue opportunities that arise, ultimately aiming for success on the field.
