Free agent LB DeMeco Ryans mentioned during an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio that he’s been in contact with a few teams, but says that he’s yet to receive an offer.
“Heard from a few teams that are interested but to me there is no real interest until a contract is on the table,” Ryans said.
Ryans added that he’s hoping to play with a good quarterback and organization if he gets the opportunity.
“I take every opportunity as it comes and will weigh if it’s a good fit for me. Want to play with a good quarterback and good organization,” Ryan said, per Sirius XM NFL Radio.
Ryans mentioned a few months ago that he would still like to continue his NFL career, but admitted that he may not get the opportunity.
“Either way, I’m happy spending time with the family,” Ryans said, via AL.com. “It’s just a blessing for me to be able to play 10 years in the NFL and have a great career. I have no regrets about it, so it’s great either way. If I could play again, that’ll be great. If not, that’s great as well.”
Since Ryans became available back in February, there hasn’t been any reported interest in him.
Ryans, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Texans back in 2006. He spent six years in Texans before he was traded to the Eagles in 2012.
Ryans was in the final year of his a two-year, $7.5 million contract when he was released in a move that freed up $3.5 million in available cap space for the Eagles several months ago.
In 2015, Ryans appeared in 14 games and recorded 49 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and five pass defenses.
