Logan Ryan says he is ‘open for business’ despite Jets reports
Logan Ryan is one of the top free agents remaining on the market, and there were rumblings earlier in the week that the veteran cornerback is on the verge of signing with the New York Jets. From the sound of it, that is far from official.
During an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” Thursday, Ryan was asked about the New York Daily News report claiming the Jets expect to sign him to a one-year deal. Ryan said he would be open to playing for the Jets as someone who grew up in New Jersey, but he insists he has not agreed to a deal with any team yet.
"The Jets… it makes a lot of sense… but I'm open for business."

“That would make sense for sure, but like I said I’m trying to do what’s best for my family and everything like that,” Ryan said. “Obviously there’s a lot of rumors out there. I can’t confirm any of it because I’m still not signed yet. We’ll see.
“I obviously want to get a deal done, and I’m open to it. I’m also open to 30 other franchises besides the Titans. That’s the only one I’ve ruled out so far. I’m completely open for business.”
Ryan said recently that he would have been willing to return to Tennessee on a one-year deal at $9.5 million like he made last season, so the Jets or any other team would likely have to pay him somewhere around that number.
Ryan would be a great addition to New York’s secondary at a time in the offseason when starting-caliber players are difficult to find. Ryan had 113 tackles, 4.5 sacks and 4 interceptions for Tennessee last season. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the New England Patriots after being drafted by them in the third round in 2013.
