With the start of the NFL season roughly 10 days away, there are still some really talented veteran free agents available. One of these players is cornerback/safety Logan Ryan. Ryan put up great numbers with the Tennessee Titans last season, totaling 113 tackles (career-high), 8 QB hits (career-high), 18 passes defended (career-high) and 4 interceptions.

These numbers are part of the reason why it's somewhat perplexing Ryan does not yet have a job, especially considering his positional versatility. With that in mind, let's take a look at three potential landing spots for the former Titans DB.

The Houston Texans surrendered the fourth-most passing yards per game last season, so their secondary is certainly in need of an upgrade. Entering the season with Gareon Conley as the CB1, only in his fourth year, signing a guy like Ryan could add some crucial veteran leadership in that secondary unit. While the Texans tried to address their defensive line in the draft and free agency, which should help the secondary in turn, bringing in a guy like Ryan could help bring it all together.

2. New York Giants

The Giants have needed help in the secondary for years now. Despite spending a ton of draft capital on a slew of cornerbacks over the last three years, none of them have been a smashing success. And DeAndre Baker, the former first-rounder who was doing the best of them all, has a very muddled future with pending felony charges. They did sign James Bradberry this offseason, which should be a big step in the right direction, but for a team that had a No. 27 ranked defense, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA, and surrendered the fifth-most passing yards per game, they could use all the help they can get.

1. Cleveland Browns

While the Browns had a solid pass defense last season, they have already been hit hard with the injury bug in 2020. Safety Grant Delpit is done for the season, and Greedy Williams and Kevin Johnson are dinged up as well. Logan Ryan also shares an agent with Delpit, so there could be a world where that connection fits perfectly with the loss of the rookie safety.
