The Jacksonville Jaguars — along with the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers — have reportedly expressed interest (if not reach out to) free agent cornerback Logan Ryan of the New England Patriots.

Logan Ryan is a guy who thrives in man coverage. If you’d like to read more about him as a coverage defender, check out this film breakdown we did of him last month. In his two years as a starter with the Patriots, Ryan intercepted six passes and defended another 25, along with a forced fumble and 131 tackles. All in all in his four year career, Ryan has 13 interceptions, 42 passes defended, four forced fumbles, 202 tackles, and one pick-six touchdown.
While guys like A.J. Bouye will likely look for contracts similar to what Janoris Jenkins got last year in free agency — five years, $60 million — Ryan will likely be offered contracts in the $30-$45 million range. Considering the Jaguars currently have $74 million in cap space, the Jaguars shouldn’t hesitate to spend in free agency to improve this roster, and Logan Ryan should be high on their list.
