Ryan signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Titans on Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
The first day of free agency had been quiet for the Titans prior to the shrewd signing of Ryan, a 26-year-old corner who led the Patriots in tackles in 2016. In addition to being a sure tackler, Ryan has shown strong cover skills, racking up 25 pass breakups and six interceptions over the past two seasons. He figures to immediately earn a starting role in the Titans' secondary.
Ryan finished the 2016 regular season with a team-high 92 tackles to go along with two interceptions over the course of 16 games.
In his fourth season as a pro, Ryan set a career high in tackles and his IDP relevance has continued in the postseason, with the cornerback having racked up 16 tackles and a pick in two playoff games. The 2013 third-rounder is slated to become a free agent this offseason and is thus likely poised to to earn a hefty raise, either in the form of an extension with the Patriots or a deal with another franchise.
