Giants HC Joe Judge said Friday that S Logan Ryan will likely miss a 2nd straight game on the COVID list. It sounded like there was still a slight chance Ryan might be able to get in the 2 negative tests needed to make him eligible to return, but Judge conceded that the Giants are planning to not have Ryan available. S Julian Love played every snap against the Bucs in Ryan's absence.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Logan Ryan has agreed to terms with the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay still has its top 3 CBs from last year -- Carlton Davis, Sean Murphy-Bunting and Jamel Dean -- under contract. So Ryan's most obvious fit would be at safety, where the team watched Jordan Whitehead walk in free agency. We'll watch for confirmation, though, as Ryan could just settle in as a swing/rotational player. Mike Edwards is the potential incumbent candidate for the safety vacancy.
Giants DB Logan Ryan seemed to indicate via Twitter Thursday that the team is releasing him. It's a salary-cutting move for a guy who had a $3 million guarantee set to trigger, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Ryan spent the past 2 years as a full-timer for the Giants, seeing action at safety and corner. We wouldn't be surprised to see the 31-year-old land a gig elsewhere, but Ryan is no lock to do so.
Giants HC Joe Judge confirmed Friday that S Logan Ryan has tested positive for COVID. The team was awaiting 1 more test to confirm that, according to ESPN's Jordan Ranaan, but they don't believe it to be a false positive. That would knock Ryan out for Monday night's game against the Buccaneers. Julian Love seems the likeliest replacement should Ryan sit.
The Giants on Monday agreed to a 1-year deal with free-agent DB Logan Ryan. It's not yet clear where they'll play the former Titans CB, though the New York Post reports a source said, "Everywhere. He's a Swiss Army knife." Ryan has experience with HC Joe Judge and DC Patrick Graham from working with both in New England. And the Giants certainly have room -- and a need -- for Ryan throughout the secondary. He might not practice with the team until next week, but a significant Week 1 role seems likely. Ryan is worth a late shot in IDP drafts of at least moderate depth.
