Ryan notched 94 tackles (68 solo), one sack, nine defended passes, one interception, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 16 games with the Giants in 2020.
Ryan linked with the Giants via a one-year deal last offseason, and he proved instrumental in revitalizing the team's secondary. The versatile 29-year-old suited up at a number of positions for New York in 2020, including free safety, box safety and slot cornerback. As a result of his strong play, he earned a new three-year deal in December which includes $20 million guaranteed.
Ryan agreed Friday with the Giants on a three-year, $31 million contract extension, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Coming off a highly productive season for the Titans in 2019, Ryan was widely viewed as one of the top free-agent defensive players this offseason, but he struggled to find a team willing to hand him a multi-year deal and ultimately landed with the Giants on a one-year, $7.5 million pact. The versatile defensive back has proven to be a shrewd investment for an improved New York secondary, logging 83 tackles, nine pass breakups, three forced fumbles, a sack and an interception through the team's first 14 games. For his efforts, Ryan will now be rewarded with a deal that contains $20 million guaranteed while keeping him with the Giants through his age-32 season.
Ryan collected nine tackles (seven solo) during Sunday night's 20-6 loss to Cleveland.
Ryan has been productive across the stat sheet, collecting 83 tackles, nine pass deflections, three forced fumbles, an interception and a sack in his debut campaign with the Giants. The two-time Super Bowl champion has been holding up well in coverage, containing opponents to a 57.4 percent completion rate with two touchdowns over 47 pass attempts thrown in his direction. Ryan tandems with Jabrill Peppers at safety as the 5-9 Giants aim to keep playoff aspirations alive with a Week 16 upset of the Ravens.
Ryan (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Washington.

Ryan (hip) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Ryan played all but two of the team's defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Buccaneers, but now he's battling a hip injury to start the week. His ability to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday signals that it may not be too serious of an injury, but we'll know more as the week progresses. Julian Love and Nate Ebner are in line for increases in usage if Ryan misses any time.
Ryan made nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 37-34 loss to the Giants.
Ryan led the team in tackles, and he has a firm grasp on the starting free safety position, as the Rutgers product has played every snap over the last three games. In total, he has 31 stops through five outings, adding three pass breakups and a forced fumble along the way. His IDP value is a bit inconsistent, however, as he posted just four stops in Week 4.

Ryan agreed Monday with the Giants on a one-year, $7.5 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Giants had a clear need for help in the secondary with second-round rookie Xavier McKinney (foot) out indefinitely, and the versatile Ryan -- who has experience at safety and as a slot corner -- is about as good of a replacement as New York could have hoped to find. Ryan was one of the top IDP options out of the secondary in 2019, compiling a career-high 113 tackles to go with 18 pass breakups, four interceptions, four forced fumbles and 4.5 sacks over 16 games with the Titans. He may struggle to replicate those numbers in New York, though his familiarity with first-year head coach Joe Judge from their time together in New England should at least ease Ryan's transition to his new team.
Ryan views himself as a safety rather than a cornerback going forward, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
Ryan's agent recently emailed all 32 GMs safety stats in order to compare his clients production to others at the position. While he has played primarily corner to date, he wants to provide more depth and versatility for whatever team he ultimately signs with. The 29-year-old is reportedly seeking a $10 million per year deal and hoping his ability to play multiple positions will help make that happen.

As a result of his resurgent performance, Ryan could be in for a big payday as he is set to hit free agency for the second time of his career.

Ryan has been instrumental to the team's unexpected postseason run, with his biggest highlight coming in the wild-card win over the Patriots, when he sealed the victory with a pick-six on former teammate Tom Brady's final pass of the game.
