Tennessee Titans WR Stealing Show at OTAs

NASHVILLE – Optimism is a crucial theme for the Tennessee Titans under first-year coach Brian Callahan. The team’s optimism comes from its belief in Callahan’s strategic approach to scoring and his ability to lead the team to success.

Titans general manager Ran Carthon spent the offseason rebuilding a roster that had experienced back-to-back losing seasons, a clear indication of the team’s determination to turn things around under Callahan’s leadership.

Carthon’s strategic move to acquire former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Calvin Ridley has sent shockwaves through the NFL. This bold move is a resounding statement of the Titans’ unwavering commitment to building a formidable team around their second-year quarterback, Will Levis, fueling a sense of anticipation among fans and enthusiasts.

Ridley has been working hard on the practice field at the Titans facility.

The team is currently going through its offseason training program. During a recent Organized Team Activity session, Ridley demonstrated his skills with a number of impressive catches, demonstrating his agility and precision. These standout plays caught the media’s attention, and Titans insider Jim Wyatt, who was asked which Titan had been most impressive during the OTAs, specifically mentioned Ridley’s exceptional performance.

“I did OTA observations at the two open practices and I led with him both times,” Wyatt wrote. A lot of guys have looked good, but Calvin looked explosive off the line of scrimmage, and he’s a smooth route runner. I see him up close and personal for the first time, having previously seen him from the press and on TV. It will be fun to watch him this fall.”

Ridley, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound receiver, totaled 76 receptions for 1,016 yards and eight touchdowns for the Jaguars in 2023, appearing in 17 games. Callahan is curious to see how Ridley plays this season.

“Everything we thought he would be. You know, it’s always exciting when you sign a guy in free agency and you hope, but you don’t always know,” Callahan said. You rely on what you hear and what you see. It’s always good when the guy comes into the building and you see that he is everything you would expect him to be. He is a great professional.”

Ridley has 324 career receptions, 4,358 yards and 36 touchdowns in 66 games, including 52 starts.

“He’s a phenomenal person to be around. He’s incredibly talented. You see his speed and his burst when you see him on the field. I think he’s really going to help us,” Callahan said after Wednesday’s practice. “He’s a professional. He prepares, he works hard, he loves to play football, and those are the things you hope for when you sign free agents. So far he has delivered on all those things for us. And again, There is still a lot of work to do, but I am very happy with him.”
