Wideout Calvin Ridley, considered the best pass-catcher in the 2024 free-agency class, is joining the Tennessee Titans. Reportedly, Ridley and the Titans are in agreement on a four-year, $92 million deal.

Ridley, who played the last season with Titans’ division rivals Jacksonville Jaguars, will get $50 million in guaranteed money as part of the deal, according to his agents David Mulugheta and Reza Hesam.

Ridley missed the entire 2022 due to a suspension before returning to the field in 2023. Despite the time off, he still managed to catch 76 passes for 1,016 yards and eight touchdowns in 17 games with the Jags.

The move to the Titans comes as a surprise, considering recent reports indicated that a return to Jacksonville is the likeliest outcome for Ridley. The player expressed interest in remaining with the franchise, while the Jags also seemed keen on a reunion. Additionally, the New England Patriots reportedly made a strong push to sign him.

By acquiring Ridley, the Titans add another weapon for their promising second-year quarterback, Will Levis. Ridley will join the Pro Bowler DeAndre Hopkins and former first-round wideout Treylon Burks as primary options for Levis.

Prior to joining the Jags, Ridley spent four years with the Atlanta Falcons. He has 516 career receptions for 4,358 yards and 36 touchdowns as a pro.
