Reports: Logan Ryan files grievance against Giants for $3M

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Logan Ryan filed a grievance against his former team, the New York Giants, over a portion of his 2021 salary he believes should have been guaranteed, The Athletic and ESPN reported Friday.

Ryan, 31, had $5.5 million of his salary fully guaranteed and $8.5 million guaranteed for injury. Ryan had surgery on his finger in the offseason, and the Giants released him after the surgery, per the reports.

Ryan believes that entitles him to the $3 million difference between the guarantees.

The veteran played 15 games (all starts) for New York in 2021, compiling a career-high 117 tackles, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and one sack. He was a defensive captain for the Giants.

After he was released last month, Ryan signed with the Buccaneers, re-joining Tom Brady after they were teammates in New England from 2013-16.

Ryan said in his introductory press conference in Tampa Bay that his release from the Giants “wasn’t my call.”

In nine seasons with the Patriots, the Tennessee Titans (2017-19) and the Giants, Ryan has totaled 705 career tackles, 18 interceptions, 95 pass breakups, 14 forced fumbles and 13 sacks while spending time at both cornerback and safety.

Giants S Logan Ryan tests positive for COVID-19

New York Giants safety Logan Ryan missed practice Friday due to COVID-19 protocols.

Head coach Joe Judge said Ryan, who is vaccinated, tested positive on Thursday but has not yet been ruled out for Monday night’s game at Tampa Bay.

Judge said the Giants’ medical staff is checking out possible close contacts to Ryan. As a precaution, the team’s unvaccinated players participated via video chat in Friday morning’s meetings.

Ryan, 30, is the Giants’ leading tackler with 72 stops in nine starts this season.

If Ryan can’t go, Julian Love likely will take his place opposite safety Xavier McKinney.

Linebacker Lorenzo Carter also missed Friday’s practice due to a non-COVID illness.

The Giants (3-6) have won two of their past three games entering Monday’s clash with the Buccaneers (6-3).

DB Ryan, Giants agree to three-year contract

Logan Ryan shared his Christmas present with the world on Friday, announcing he’s agreed to a deal to remain a member of the New York Giants.

“A Christmas Morning we’ll never forget,” he tweeted. “The @giants and I just agreed to a new 3 year deal. IM HERE TO STAY!!

“Merry Christmas! #TheMostVersatile #TogetherBlue”

NFL Network reported the deal is worth $31 million, with $20 million guaranteed.

The Giants had signed Ryan to a one-year, $5.05 million deal, plus incentives, after the Tennessee Titans opted not to retain the 29-year-old defensive back.

Ryan had four interceptions, 18 pass breakups, four forced fumbles, 4.5 sacks and 113 tackles last season, setting career highs in every category but interceptions (five in 2013). He made $10 million in 2019 in the final year of a three-year, $30 million contract with Tennessee.

This season, Ryan has provided a veteran presence to an improving Giants defense, which is 12th in the league in total yards (346.4) and ninth in points surrendered (22.2).

In 14 games (13 starts), Ryan has nine passes defensed, three forced fumbles, one interception, one sack and 83 tackles.

In early November, Ryan praised the team’s medical staff for offering guidance that potentially saved his wife’s life. After his wife, who was pregnant, told Ryan by phone of her symptoms, he consulted with a trainer about her condition. The trainer, Justin Maher, advised her to seek immediate treatment, and she had surgery for an ectopic pregnancy.

“That’s the type of organization we have here,” Ryan said at the time.

Giants S Ryan praises trainer for helping save wife’s life

New York Giants safety Logan Ryan lauded one of the team’s trainers on Wednesday for potentially saving his wife’s life on Tuesday.

Ashley Ryan wound up undergoing emergency surgery to deal with an ectopic pregnancy, where a fertilized egg grows outside the uterus.

Ashley Ryan had flown to Florida to vote in the election near the couple’s offseason home. She spoke with her husband after the Giants lost 25-23 to the visiting Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

“I was leaving the stadium around 1 a.m. and she was telling me about some pains she had in her stomach,” Ryan said. “I told her she wanted to sleep it off. She said she was in extreme pain but she would wait until the morning. I talked to one of our trainers about the symptoms and he said, ‘No, she needs to go to the (emergency room).’ …

“The egg was about to burst, so she ended up going to emergency surgery and they ended up saving her and preventing a lot of what could’ve been done. A trainer on our team, Justin Maher, telling my wife to go to the ER at 1 a.m. could’ve saved her life — or saved a lot of internal bleeding there. That’s the type of organization we have here.”

Ryan, back at practice Wednesday, added, “My kids are OK. My wife is recovering well. She is OK. This happened all yesterday. And (head coach Joe Judge) said, if you need to fly to Florida, don’t worry about football. That’s what Joe is as a man and as a coach.

“I’ll do everything I can to play for a coach like that and an organization like this because if that wasn’t the case, I don’t know if I’d be here today. And honestly, I’m extremely grateful for this organization and Joe and for everybody to understand things are bigger than football, especially this year.”

Ryan, 29, won two Super Bowl championship while playing for the New England Patriots from 2013-16. He then played 2017-19 with the Tennessee Titans before signing a one-year, $7.5 million deal with the Giants just before the start of the 2020 season.

In eight games, seven starts, this year, Ryan has 47 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.

Report: DB Ryan hires new agent; several teams interested

Free-agent defensive back Logan Ryan has a new agent and is expected to sign a deal before the start of the NFL season, according to a report Sunday.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Ryan is now working with agent Joel Segal, whose clients include defensive stars Patrick Peterson and Khalil Mack. Rapoport said Ryan has “several suitors.”

Ryan had 113 tackles, 4.5 sacks, four interceptions, 18 passes defensed and four forced fumbles for the Tennessee Titans last season.

Entering his eighth NFL season, Ryan said farewell to the Titans organization and fans in an Instagram post in May and said he wants to continue his career elsewhere.

“My chapter in Tennessee has come to a close,” he began his post.

“To the @Titans fans: Thank you for all the love. The energy and support this past season is what led to an epic run.

“To my Titans Teammates: I love all y’all. Being a leader and earning y’all respect is what meant most to me. Win or lose we stuck together and backed down from no one. “

He added he was “looking forward to continue to play at an elite level for a organization that’s a great fit for my family and me.”

The following week, Ryan reportedly was on the verge of a deal with the New York Jets, but that didn’t materialize.

Ryan spent the first four seasons of his career (2013-16) with the New England Patriots before signing a three-year, $30 million deal with Titans in March 2017. In 109 career games (85 starts), he has 494 tackles, 11 sacks and 17 interceptions.
