PRO: The Titans entered the 2017 NFL free agency period looking to add leadership and experience to their secondary. The club found just that when they signed two-time Super Bowl Champion Logan Ryan as an unrestricted free agent on March 11, 2017. The 5-foot-11-inch, 195-pounder collected 13 total interceptions in four seasons (2013-16) with the New England Patriots and his first campaign with the Titans, a total that ranked 10th in the NFL among all cornerbacks. The Rutgers product was originally drafted by the Patriots in the third round (83rd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.
• Ryan set a career high in 2017 with 15 starts during the regular season.
• Ryan is a two-time Super Bowl champion, having captured the title with the New England Patriots in 2014 and 2016.
• In 2016, Ryan posted 92 tackles, two interceptions, a sack, 11 passes defensed, three quarterback pressures and a forced fumble. He started all three postseason games and collected 22 tackles, an interception, a sack, four passes defensed and a quarterback hit.
• In 2015, Ryan collected 82 tackles, a team-high four interceptions and 14 passes defensed.
• In 2013, Ryan led all rookies and finished tied for the AFC lead with five interceptions.
• Logan and his wife, Ashley, are the founders of The Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation (ryananimalfoundation.org). RARF works with animal welfare organizations to promote adoption and provide grants and educational opportunities.
• Every month on the 26th—the day corresponding to his jersey number—he posts a photo on social media with a dog that is in need of adoption along with the hashtag #ryansmonthlyrescue.
• During Super Bowl weekend in February 2018, RARF partnered with Animal Planet in the first-ever Dog Bowl, which featued adoptable adult and senior dogs.
• During the 2018 offseason, Ryan and several other Titans defensive backs spent extensive time training in the Nashville area. Ryan also spent some time working with former running back Eddie George and George’s long-time boxing coach.
• In 2017, while taking wedding photos in the St. Lucian town of Soufriere, Logan and Ashley came across a group of stray dogs. One dog in particular followed them through the streets and impacted the newlyweds. Determined to help the dog, the couple donated to HelpAWS (@helpaws), a St. Lucian-based dog rescue, and encouraged all friends and family to donate rather than give wedding gifts. After the couple posted a photo on social media, HelpAWS found the particular dog, named her Logan, and part of the donation paid for her spay.
• During the 2017 and 2018 offseasons, Ryan and N.Y. Giants cornerback Eli Apple funded and hosted their #ThursdayNightLights Football Camp at Eastern High School in Vorhees, N.J., where they both attended. The free event for kids was filled with football, celebrity guests and music.
• In June 2017, Ryan surprised his big brother, Jordan, by paying off his student loans for his 29th birthday. Logan cut a check for $82,000 to the American Education Services to cover Jordan’s loans from earning his engineering degree from Drexel University. “My man got accepted to college, graduated with honors, and now works as an engineer. He did everything the right way and still lived with a ridiculous amount of student loan debt. The system is broke and makes no sense. I’m fortunate and blessed to be able to take care of that for him.”
• When Ryan decided to leave Rutgers and enter the NFL Draft after his redshirt junior season in 2012, he made a promise to his parents that after his rookie year, he would return to school and earn his degree. Ryan kept his promise and graduated in the spring of 2014 with a degree in labor relations and a minor in psychology. “I committed to Rutgers, not only as a football player, but as a student, so I was going to make sure I finished that end too. It’s a big accomplishment in my life. I held my word to my parents and stuck with it and I’m fortunate. It took a lot of work, but I was able to go back and finish and walk in graduation.”
