Ryan is expected to sign a one year deal with the team. The terms of the contract have not been disclosed at this time, but Logan Ryan was looking to make at least $10 million a year, which is on par with what he was making in Tennessee the past three seasons.
He is likely going to play outside opposite Pierre Desir, keeping Brian Poole in the slot where he plays his best. For the first time in a couple of seasons, the New York Jets have a formidable group of cornerbacks to go along with their top tier safety duo of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams should have a pretty good unit this season, considering they played extremely well after multiple of their star players missed extended time due to injuries.
The former third-round pick out of Rutgers was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2013 and won two Super Bowls with the team before signing with the Tennessee Titans in 2016. The Titans signed Ryan to a three-year, $30 million contract and has started every game he was eligible to with the team.
In 2019, Ryan reached multiple career highs with 113 tackles, 4.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. He also tied the second-best interception total of his career with four. Most notably Ryan will be known as the last player to catch a pass from former teammate Tom Brady during his time with the Patriots. Ryan intercepted Brady and returned it for a touchdown during the final moments of the AFC Wild Card Game between the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots.
