98.5 The Sports Hub staff report
Logan Ryan is, in his own words, “completely open for business.”
Ryan addressed rumors that he could be signing with the New York Jets as a free agent in an interview with Peter Schrager during Good Morning Football on Thursday. The former Patriots and Titans cornerback, a Berlin, N.J. native, acknowledged the rumors that the Jets and Dolphins are competing for his services. But while he couldn’t confirm or deny the rumors, he explained why the Jets would be a fitting destination for him.
“The Jets – I mean, it makes a lot of sense, because I’m from the area, I went to Rutgers, 20 minutes from there, so I’m familiar with New Jersey, I’m blue-collar, that’s how I grew up,” Ryan said. “I came out of Rutgers in the third round to New England and had to do my job and continue to do that. So that would make sense for sure. But I’m just trying to do what’s best for my family. Obviously there’s a lot of rumors out there. I cant confirm any of it because I’m obviously still not signed yet.
“So, we’ll see. I obviously want to get a deal done whenever, and I’m open to it. So we’ll see what happens there. But I’m also open to pretty much 30 other franchises except for the Titans, that’s the only one I’ve ruled out thus far. So I’m completely open for business.”
Ryan is fresh in the minds of Patriots fans after he intercepted Tom Brady to seal the Titans’ 20-13 wild card win in Foxboro back in January. The pick-six would turn out to be Brady’s final pass attempt as a Patriot.
The rumors and reports indicate that Ryan may ultimately return to the AFC East.
