During an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football,” free-agent CB Logan Ryan said he was still “open for business” despite reports he was nearing a deal with the Jets, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini.
Ryan acknowledged there was some mutual interest between himself and the Jets but he couldn’t confirm anything.
“That would make sense, for sure, but … I’m trying to do what’s best for my family,” he said. “There are a lot of rumors out there. I can’t confirm any of it because I’m obviously still not signed yet. I’m open to it. We’ll see what happens.”
Ryan has had a long wait as a free agent with his candidacy coming down to New York or the Dolphins after closing the door on his former team, the Titans.
Back in March, Ian Rapoport also reported Ryan was looking for at least $10 million per year in a deal from a team, which is the same amount he made last year.
Ryan would immediately step into a starting role with the Jets, who made improving the secondary one of their top goals this offseason, and his versatility should play well with Jets DC Gregg Williams.
Ryan, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2013. He has played out his four-year, $2,773,252 contract with the Patriots before agreeing to a three-year, $30 million contract with the Titans in 2017.
Ryan made base salaries of $10 million and $9.5 million the past two seasons.
In 2019, Ryan appeared in all 16 games for the Titans and recorded 113 tackles, 4.5 sacks, four interceptions, four forced fumbles and 18 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 62 cornerback out of 113 qualifying players.
