NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans general manager Jon Robinson got to know cornerback
He liked him so much he convinced Ryan to join him in Tennessee.
The Titans have agreed to terms with Ryan, a starter for the Super Bowl champions in 2016 and a key member of their secondary the past few seasons. The deal is pending a physical.
“He has been one of the more productive corners … over his career there in New England.”
A third round (83rd overall) draft pick by New England in the 2013 NFL Draft, Logan started all 16 games for the Patriots last season, and finished with 92 tackles, 11 passes defensed and two interceptions.
In four NFL seasons, Ryan has recorded 243 tackles and 13 interceptions while playing in 64 straight games, with 40 starts. He tallied five interceptions for the Patriots in 2013, when Robinson served as director of college scouting with the Patriots.
Logan gives the Titans a top-notch cornerback in the secondary, and an experienced leader from a winning culture.
Logan (5-11, 195), who played at Rutgers, was the 16th rated cornerback by Pro Football Focus in 2016, and the fifth-best cornerback in tackle efficiency.
“He really had a similar, kind of a production resume at Rutgers,” Robinson said of Ryan. “He had really good production on the ball in New England. He is a good teammate, a smart player. He is dependable, he is tough. He’ll be a nice addition to the secondary with all those guys we have coming back that played quite a bit.
“We’re just looking forward to him coming in and being a veteran guy, stepping up as a leader in the secondary and providing some good play for us.”
