NFL rumors: Where CB Logan Ryan could play next; What to expect from the 2020 schedule announcement
National Football League (NFL) franchises are not done yet in building their roster for the upcoming 2020 games. One of them, except for Tennessee Titans, could have a new cornerback in Logan Ryan.
NFL free agency rumors: Logan Ryan confirms exit from Tennessee
Ryan has been one of the talked-about free agents in the NFL right now. And discussions about his next destination will spread even more now that he officially announced he is not going to play in 2020 wearing a Titans jersey.
The two-time Super Bowl champion thanked the Titans fans on Tuesday in a heartfelt Instagram post. Addressing his teammates, Ryan wrote, “I love all y’all. Being a leader and earning y’all respect is what meant most to me.” Moving forward to the next chapter of his career, Ryan promised to play “at an elite level” for a team that would work best for him and his family.
It should be noted that fans and analysts have been expecting Ryan to move on from Titans as he entered the free agency this offseason. While it is still unclear where he would play next, two NFL teams stand out in the rumor mill – the Giants and the Jets.
New York Daily News reported that the Jets have had “internal discussion” about acquiring Ryan off the free agency market. The team is purportedly set to fortify its offense for the 2020 season, but it also reportedly eyes welcoming the veteran cornerback as a significant addition to reinforcing its defense.
Following Ryan’s announcement on Tuesday are rumors suggesting he could sign with the Giants. Pro Football Focus previously suggested that the Giants is one of the best landing spots for Ryan that would also benefit the team. The same report argued that Ryan could be the reinforcement the Giants need to support cornerbacks DeAndre Baker and James Bradberry on the outside.
NFL 2020 schedule: What could change this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic
NFL fans might want to tune in on the announcement of the 2020 regular season schedule of the league on Thursday, May 7, at 8 p.m. ET. This is not a typical event as the NFL has to consider how the COVID-19 pandemic could pan out in the coming months and how the games could be adjusted without having to ultimately postpone the season.
Instead of announcing one rigid schedule, NFL officials could present fans with several possibilities on how a full 17-week program could take place. It was earlier reported that the NFL 2020 season might begin a few weeks later than usual. Fans can watch the announcement on the NFL Network, the NFL mobile app, and NFL.com.
