Logan Ryan received a $ 31 million Merry Christmas from the Giants.
Ryan announced on Twitter that he had signed a three-year extension on Christmas morning, and the deal is worth $ 31 million, with a $ 20 million guarantee, as previously reported by NFL Network.
Ryan also did not have to test the waters again after the final rince, 29, after a disappointing spin through free agency. He came on a one-year market-for-value, $ 5 million contract just before the regular session after being unsigned through training camp.
But patience came out right.
New Jersey Natives and Rutgers Products Become indispensable in the right position, Going from corner to corner – where he played four seasons for the New England Patriots and three for the Tennessee Titans – for safety. Months of negotiations with the Giants heated up after Ryan replaced agents and the Giants underwent foot surgery for second-round pick Xavier McKinney.
Ryan, who had a former relationship with New England coach Joe Judge, quickly established himself as a vocal leader of the defense, with other high-priced free-agent additions (Blake Martinez and James Bradberry) and a franchise Face included who can count on ownership headlines. He has three forced fumbles and an interception as a Pro Football Focus No. 34 ranked safety.
Asked recently if he would be interested in re-signing, Ryan said, “Definitely. I make jerseys. It is a blessing for me to come here. Personally a lot of things had to happen for me in free agency to get into this situation. I feel like I’m in the right place at the right time. “
According to overthecap.com, Ryan’s $ 20 million guarantee is among the ninth safest. The contract is similar to the deal signed with the Titans (three years, $ 30 million) in 2017 as a free agent.
Therefore, the Giants would advance through the deepest part of the slot, box and field, with the versatility to rotate the Jabrill Papers (signed through 2021), Ryan and McKinney. The secondary has been the key to the Giants’ key defense, allowing Ryan’s ability to allow coordinator Patrick Graham to creatively hide pre-snap looks.
The contract could also be a sign of safety for Dave Gatelman, as it would be NFL malpractice for a general manager to make a long-term decision on free agents two weeks before the season was over.
Gatelman entered the season on the hot seat and was allowed to play meaningful games in December after the Giants won four-game, 1-7. Meeting the stated season goal of John Mara. Assistant General Manager Kevin Abrams is heavily into managing the salary cap and bargaining contracts.
How will Rains contract affect the rest of the offers?
If the COVID-19-affected NFL salary cap falls to $ 176 million per team, the Giants are projected to earn about $ 10.8 million. Defensive linemen Leonard Williams and Dalvin Tomlinson will be looking for big multi-year contracts, and the Giants need an upgrade at wide receiver and pass-razor.
