Titans land Calvin Ridley: GM Ran Carthon details how signing star WR went from a ‘pipe dream’ to reality


This offseason, the Tennessee Titans gained a star wide receiver in what was one of the most notable deals during the 2024 free agency frenzy. While it was widely believed that Calvin Ridley was deciding whether to stay with the Jacksonville Jaguars or head to the New England Patriots, it was actually the Titans who ended up signing the former first-round pick.

The 29-year-old signed a four-year, $92 million deal that includes $50 million guaranteed, but just how did the Titans end up to be the dark horse that won the race? General manager Ran Carthon gave some insight on how the deal got done, admitting that at first the idea was a long shot.

“To actually have the opportunity to even consider him was something that we had a part of our plan, but in our mind, really, it was more of a pipe dream. Can we afford these guys and get Ridley?” Carthon said.

He said it started with a conversation with assistant general manager Chad Brinker. Laughing, Carthon said he “won’t go into the details of how that conversation started. … It was one of those things where we agreed to talk the next day, let’s just say it that way.”

From there, he spoke to head coach Brian Callahan, then owner Amy Adams Strunk. 

“We came in the next morning and everybody kinda had that look like, ‘Let’s do it, let’s try,'” Carthon explained.
