Logan Ryan may not be playing for New England in 2017, but he will still share a backfield with a McCourty.
The former Patriots cornerback has signed with the Tennessee Titans, his agent announced Thursday. Ryan agreed to a three-year deal worth $30 million. Ryan will team up with Devin McCourty's brother Jason, who is the No. 1 cornerback in Tennessee.
While Ryan served as the No. 2 and No. 3 cornerback for the Patriots during the 2016 season, the 26-year-old cornerback finished with 92 tackles, 11 pass deflections, two interceptions and one sack. In the Patriots' 34-28 win over the Falcons in Super Bowl LI, Ryan recorded a team-high six tackles.
Ryan was a Patriots' third round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Rutgers. He amassed 243 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 13 interceptions in his four seasons in New England.
Former Lions tight end Eric Ebron is signing a two-year deal worth $15 million with the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Ebron was rumored to be a potential target for the Patriots, especially after new Pats running back Jeremy Hill tried recruiting him to the team.
The 24-year-old had 53 receptions for 574 yards and four touchdowns a season ago with Detroit.
Shea McClellin will be blocking kicks for somebody else next season.
The Patriots announced Monday they've released the veteran linebacker, ending his tenure with the team after two seasons. ESPN's Field Yates broke the news.
The Pats signed McClellin to a three-year deal prior to the 2016 season, but that was the only season in which he played for the team. McClellin missed all of last season due to injury. Prior to coming to New England, McClellin played four seasons with the Bears, who chose him 19th overall in 2012.
McClellin's biggest contribution with the Pats came when he blocked a Justin Tucker kick in Week 14 of the 2016 season against the Ravens.
