Dolphins remain in play for Logan Ryan

Logan Ryan won’t return to Tennessee, and by all accounts, the Jets are favored to land him. But the Dolphins “remain in play” for the cornerback, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

Ryan and the Dolphins have had recent talks despite their riches at cornerback.

Ryan, 29, wants close to the $9.5 million he made last season for 2020, which may be unrealistic at this point in free agency.

He is No. 3 on PFT’s list of the top available free agents.

The Dolphins extended Xavien Howard‘s contract paying him $15 million a season and paid Byron Jones $16.5 million a season in free agency. They are the second- and third-highest paid corners in average salary.

They also drafted Noah Igbinoghene in the first round.

The Jets have a bigger need than the Dolphins with Pierre Desir, Quincy Wilson, Bryce Hall, Brian Poole and Arthur Maulet as their top options. But the Dolphins have Brian Flores, who was on staff in New England when Ryan played there.

  1. Philly is a better place for playing time. He’d be a starter on a very good defensive team as the a CB2.

  2. Typical Chris Grier thinking, focus intensely on one position and ignore 5 other positions..

  3. It’d be nice to have him but do we really need him? Seems Warford may be better choice.

  4. Seriously? Larry Warford is looking for about 7.5 Million and instead, we’re looking at ANOTHER cornerback?

  5. You left out the NY Jets’ Bless Austin, who played well in the 2nd half of last season as a rookie. Logan Ryan’s a good, versatile DB, the Jets have plenty of cap room, and I’d welcome him.

  6. If the Dolphins sign him then they must be looking to offload Howard who is a great player but injured too often.

  7. The fish better give him the 9.5 hes better then both of their corners they gave all that money too.

  8. Dolphins may not have Howard for the 1st 4 games. That’s why they are looking to him. But given the choice of playing for Flores or Gase, its a no brainer. Gase won’t even have the job next year, and Adams the best safety, may not even be there. The secondary will be swiss.

  9. Seems the Dolphins have forgot an important part of the offense…..the receivers. Hangnail Parker will play 10 games, so then they will be throwing to Williams and Grant?

  10. Trade Howard while his stock is at its highest because he will be suspended and who know if it happens again – – get him, trade Howard and get Warford – -plus Howard is hurt a lot

  11. Howard is such a dynamic player when he’s on the field it’s hard to say trade him. Key phrase was when he’s on the field. An argument can be made to go after Logan at 9.5 and trade X. If the Fins could swing that and pick up Warford along the way would be pretty impressive moves by Grier.

  12. Personally, I didn’t like the draft pick only because of Tua’s injury history, but he is very well liked by his teammates and has all the physical skills and leadership abilities to be a great quarterback in the NFL. We shall see.

    Probably just trying to run up the price on the jets.

    Have you noticed the Jets have a GM who seems to know what he is doing? Logan’s agent can try that. but the Jets won’t be buying if the price is above the limit they have already set. They don’t play that game anymore.
