Logan Ryan heads to Titans

With the top two cornerbacks in free agency off the market, corner number three can do a deal. And he is.

Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan has agreed to terms with the Titans, according to his agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod. No details have been disclosed.

Ryan’s path to the Patriots expired when they signed Stephon Gilmore. With Gilmore and A.J. Bouye under contract, Ryan was the next best corner on the market.

  1. Thanks for everything Logan!!! It was great having you in Foxborough!

    Hope you and former Belichick protege johnny Robinson do good things in TN!

  2. Best of luck in Tennessee, Logan! Thanks for all the quality, professional play that helped the Patriots to their last two Super Bowl victories!

  3. Logan is tired of working that extra month for half pay and I don’t blame him. Now his season will be over by Christmas every year. I think that’s an underrated part of playing for a team that goes deep in the playoffs every year. Once you have a couple rings why not go get paid by a team that never has any shot at the playoffs and get an extra month off every year?

    I see Tennessee and Jacksonville improving by adding talent. I see Houston improving by dumping a liability. I see the pillow-soft Colts responding by signing special teamer Barkevious Mingo. I think 8-8 might be their high water mark.

  5. An excellent player. He covered extremely well, tackled as well as or better than any corner, especially in the run game.

    He is a smart, talented player that will most assuredly be missed in New England. He deserves all the money he’s getting. Tennessee will not be disappointed.

  6. I have my doubts about him as the top corner on a team, but Titans are building a playoff contender and he should be fine under Dick LeBeau. John Robinson has been an excellent GM for them.

    I’ll never forget that crotch grab as you fell into the end zone against the Jets

    I suppose it is ok to think of something like this as memorable, but ya might not want to announce it to the world. Tee Hee. 😀

  8. You have had the privelege to play with Devon. Now it’s J-Macks turn.

    Thanks for everything, good luck, and continue to help abused dogs in TN as you did in NE.

    We will miss you around here.

  9. Logan’s move is a prime example of why, even before SB51, Belichick & Brady were already GOATS. All the great NFL dynasties of the past were dynastic because a great team could easily stay together before cap and FA, but such parity rules have meant the Pats team (both players and staffers) has had continual talent-drain. The Pats’ entire SB51 roster had just 10 left from their SB49 roster (32 of the team had never been to any SB).

  10. Rock solid number 2 corner for any team.

    Not an excellent cover corner but pretty solid.

    Above average ball skills but a willing and capable tackler.

  11. I knew the comments would include Pats fans talking about how great they have always been and all of their championships. I would assume these “fans” are 15 years old. Because when I grew up I never heard of their fans. I am 47.

  12. The Patriots deal for Stephon Gilmore looks pretty good now.

    Gilmore (a clear #1 CB) 5 years/$65 mil. ($13 mil/year average) – albeit $40 guaranteed.

    Logan Ryan (a clear #2 CB) 3 years/$30 mil.

    While it’s more complex than this, you can argue that the Patriots made a major upgrade from Ryan to Gilmore and it only cost them on average another $3 mil. per year.

    Butler’s situation is still up in the air, but if they have Butler back that is going to be a tough defense to throw on.

  13. Logan came up big in 2016 playoffs. Patriots have a history of letting their slot coverage guys walk (e.g., Arrington). Bill must feel he can find/draft guys to fill that position.

    Does anyone know if he qualifies for a compensatory draft pick next year? Does Gilmore subtract from the Patriots compensatory draft equation next year or did the Bills not have an option year?
