Calvin Ridley’s patience paid off in a big way as the NFL’s free agency period opened up this week.

After receiving interest from the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars, Ridley landed a four-year $92 million deal with the Tennessee Titans. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news.

The new contract also includes $50 million in guaranteed money for the former Alabama wide receiver.

After playing his first four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Ridley was traded to the Jaguars following a year-long suspension from the NFL for violating its gambling policy. In his one year in Jacksonville Ridley caught 76 passes for 1,016 yards and eight receiving touchdowns.
