Logan Ryan would fit in nicely for the Chicago Bears

At this point, even Logan Ryan should come at a discount. Crazy how some big names are still available in free agency. Ryan is coming off a superb season with the Tennesse Titans. Ryan was targeted 167 times over the last two years. During that time he has allowed 66.6 percent of those passes to be completed. I would prefer this number to be lower, but he did finish with four interceptions last year. He had none in 2018.

Ryan is not elite despite having a strong 2019 campaign. This is honestly why he is still available. Ryan wants to be paid for his 2019 performance. If you look back throughout his career (especially in New England), he has proven to be above average and a better option than Toliver. Despite giving up five touchdowns last season, he only allowed an 88.7 quarterback rating.

When watching Ryan’s film, he tends to be too aggressive at times. He would fit in with Chuck Pagano’s blitzing mentality though as he has had 4.0 and 4.5 sacks over each of the last two seasons. Even though he can be overly aggressive, that could work in his favor should the Chicago Bears front seven return to its 2018 form as expected. Ryan may cost a little too much, but this close to the season he should not cost more than a couple million dollars on a one-year deal.
