Logan Ryan

Logan Ryan is a 29-year-old corner who was selected in the third round by the New England Patriots in the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent the first four years of his career in New England, but his last three seasons have been with the Tennessee Titans as their slot corner.

Ryan spent near 65 percent of his snaps playing in the slot and found decent success. He was able to intercept the ball four times in 2019 and allow an 88.7 passer rating to opposing quarterbacks, but he also gave up five touchdowns to his coverage.

Ryan is starting to get to the backend of his career and shouldn’t command the eight-figure salary that he was getting when he was in Tennessee, which is a big reason why the Titans didn’t bring him back this year. He should come at more of a discount and be able to fill the starting slot role for the Vikings if they’re interested.

His ability to get in the backfield and make a play on the ball carrier and quarterback is something Mike Zimmer would love to add to his defense. Ryan had a combined 113 tackles last season with four forced fumbles and eight quarterback hits.
