Source – Logan Ryan agrees to a 3-year extension and $ 30 million to stay with the New York Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The New York Giants and safety Logan Ryan have agreed to a new three-year extension that will link him to the team until 2023, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The deal is worth $ 30 million with $ 20 million guaranteed, according to the source. The terms of the deal were first reported by the NFL Network.

The two sides, led by Giants assistant general manager Kevin Abrams and agent Joel Segal, worked until Christmas Eve to close the deal, according to the source. Now it is a beautiful gift for everyone to be finished on Christmas Day.

Ryan, 29, won overtime with his strong game this season. He signed a one-year, $ 5 million contract with the Giants in late August, which included an additional $ 1.5 million in incentives, and admitted that his familiarity with new coach Joe Judge was an important factor. The change was made in part because the Giants had just lost rookie security guard Xavier McKinney due to a foot injury that required surgery.

Ryan entered without problems and is in second place in the Giants with 81 tackles. He also has a sack, interception and three forced fumbles, making it a key player in a defense that has made great strides this season by becoming one of the best units in the league.

The versatility and leadership that Ryan displayed were critical to the Giants. Ryan received the defensive headset and made the call when middle linebacker Blake Martinez left a game earlier in the season. This is not a common responsibility for free security. He was also an influential voice in the dressing room.

This year did not come without Ryan experiencing ups and downs. His wife, Ashley, needed emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy last month. Logan Ryan credited Giants’ assistant athletic trainer, Justin Maher, with the potential to save his wife’s life, and especially praised Judge and the way the organization supported them in difficult times.

“And this is the kind of organization we have here. Honestly, I wasn’t going to talk about it. My kids are doing well. My wife is recovering well. She is doing well. It happened yesterday,” said Ryan at the time. “AND [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. “

Ryan spent the first four years of his career just leaving Rutgers in the New England Patriots, where he worked with Judge and current Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham. He then spent three productive seasons with the Titans of Tennessee.

His first year with the Giants (5-9) will be the first losing season of his career. But New York is still in the NFC East race and Ryan has been adamant that they are going in the right direction, perhaps increasing his desire to stay with the team.

“I think this team is close,” said Ryan earlier this week. “‘Close’ is a relative term. I just think we need to beat the Ravens [on Sunday]. … The pattern is to come out here and win this game. I’ll tell you something, the fans who are listening or whoever is listening, I’m getting ready to go out and win the game because that’s all that matters to me and that’s what is at stake ”.

Ryan is ranked 34th among all security guards this season, with a score of 67.2 by Pro Football Focus. He allowed only 256 yards, two touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 85.0 as the closest defender this season, according to NextGen Stats.
