NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Late Thursday night, the Tennessee Titans landed the cornerback they have been after. They agreed to terms with former Patriot Logan Ryan.
His agents tweeted about the agreement just after 10:30 p.m.
Ryan was a part of the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots the last four seasons starting 40 games. He has 13 career interceptions, including two in 2016 with 92 tackles.
“I have a history with Logan (Ryan) there in my time with New England,” said Titans General Manager Jon Robinson. “He is a really smart football player that played a lot of different roles with the Patriots. He played outside corner and inside corner. He is an aggressive tackler, good run support player and savvy coverage player that has a knack at the top of the route and end of the route.”
Robinson continued, “He has been one of the more productive corners with 13 picks and 41 PBUs over his career there in New England. He has really good production on the ball. He is a good teammate, smart player and he is dependable and tough. He will be a nice addition to the secondary with all those guys we have coming back. I’m looking forward to him coming in and being a veteran guy and stepping up as a leader in the secondary and provide some good play for us.”
The Titans were reportedly in the running for A.J. Bouye earlier in the day but got outbid by Jacksonville who gave him a 5-year, $67.5 million deal.
Cornerback was believed to be the Titans biggest area of concern headed into the off season after they cut Perrish Cox late in the 2016 season.
