What’s next for the New York Giants?
Posted On July 2, 2021
The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins have made a late push for the veteran cornerback to return to the roster, according to a report.
Sources close to the situation told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport on Thursday that the two teams have agreed on a deal that would keep the player on the team for one year, with the veteran slotting in at cornerback for the remainder of the season.
The Jets’ top brass also believes they have a deal in place to keep the veteran with the franchise for at least another season, sources told Rapoports.
Rapopors report came a day after the team signed former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan to a five-year, $41 million deal.
Ryan, who was released last week, made $9 million this season.
According to Rapopres report, the Jets are hopeful that the Dolphins, who lost defensive tackle Branden Albert to free agency, can land the veteran.
Ryan was a first-round pick by the Patriots in 2005 and had seven interceptions last season, which led to his first-team All-Pro nod.
The Dolphins were unable to re-sign Albert, who also struggled in Miami after being signed to a $13 million contract in March.
