Last week on MCM Radio, Terry predicted that the first player the Titans would sign in free agency would be Logan Ryan from the Patriots. Yesterday, Matt Bowen of ESPN called the Titans the best fit for Ryan:
Given the need in Tennessee for productive cornerbacks, and the role of the secondary in Dick LeBeau's defense, I can't think of a better match than Ryan landing with the Titans in free agency. LeBeau wants aggressive cornerbacks, guys who will challenge routes, drive on the ball and win with physicality. Ryan has 13 interceptions in four pro seasons, he is a technician in coverage and he's going to tackle. Yes, the Titans could pay up for Bouye or make a run at Stephon Gilmore, but the best fit? It has to be Ryan, given his tape, the coaching he received in New England and his overall ability to finish plays. That's an upgrade for the Titans in every area.
Jon Robinson wasn’t with the Patriots when they drafted Ryan, but Robinson still has plenty of contacts in New England to help him with an evaluation.
The Titans wouldn’t be done with upgrading their secondary if they signed Ryan, but it would be a really good start.
