With the news of many NFL players opting out of the 2020 season due to health concerns, teams will be looking at the available free agents to fill the roles left behind. Luckily, there are many talented veterans still available and looking for teams. Among these free agents is cornerback Logan Ryan.
Ryan enjoyed a terrific 2019 season, totaling four interceptions, 4.5 sacks and 113 tackles. The talent is obvious, so he should find a home sooner rather than later. These are the three most likely destinations for Ryan this season.
3. Minnesota Vikings
The Minnesota Vikings have more question marks on the defensive side of the ball than any other season under Mike Zimmer. Most of these questions are about the cornerbacks, with them cutting Xavier Rhodes and letting both Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander walk this offseason. They could use a veteran presence and more talent at cornerback. Ryan provides both.
2. Indianapolis Colts
If Ryan feels slighted by the Titans, he may want to stay in the division and play them twice a year. The Indianapolis Colts give him this opportunity, as well as a chance to contend in the AFC. The Colts have a solid overall team, but they did struggle against the pass last season, giving up 248.9 passing yards per game (No. 23 in NFL). Signing Ryan would be a big upgrade for their defense.
1. Tennessee Titans
While the team supposedly did not show much interest in Ryan at the start of free agency, a reunion could still come to fruition. Ryan has played his last three seasons with the Tennessee Titans, intercepting four passes in those three seasons. After losing in the AFC Championship in 2019, Ryan may feel like he has unfinished business with Tennessee.
