According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets are expected to sign free agent cornerback Logan Ryan.
BREAKING: Jets believe that they will sign former Patriots & Titans defensive back Logan Ryan to a one-year deal, per sources.
Smart move by Joe Douglas.

Ryan, a two-time Super Bowl champion with the Patriots, would provide a versatile piece for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Ryan, 29, is coming off his best season with 18 passes defensed (third most in the NFL), 4 ½ sacks, four interceptions, eight quarterback hits and 113 tackles in Tennessee.
It’d be a savvy move for Douglas, who would immediately upgrade a suspect secondary. The Jets added cornerbacks Pierre Desir (free agency), Quincy Wilson (draft-day trade) and Bryce Hall (Draft) to go along with rookie safety Ashtyn Davis (draft) this offseason. They also re-signed Brian Poole and Arthur Maulet.
Ryan would give the Jets a much needed boost in a secondary that is loaded with question marks. It will reportedly be a 1-year deal.
