One of the main struggles on the Colts defense was in the secondary. Rookies Rock Ya-Sin and Khari Willis had their moments, but ultimately did not perform very well of the course of the whole season. Bringing in a veteran of Logan Ryan‘s caliber does what Warford would do to the offensive line: solidify the unit and improve the group for the future.
Ryan is coming off of the best season of his career; he led the Tennessee defense to the AFC Championship on the back of his 4 interceptions and 113 tackles. He was regarded as one of the better corners in the league and could be the key in the Colts’ defensive back end’s success next season. One of the key factors in the team’s struggles last season was defending the pass. and Ryan’s skills in both man and zone coverage would give the unit a huge boost.
He’d likely ask for upwards of $15 million per year given his 2020 season. If the Colts are to shell out that type of money for Ryan and are certain he can be their top corner next to Xavier Rhodes, it’d be one of the more formidable units in the NFL.
Any one of these signings would likely mean the team would eat up at least half of their remaining cap space for the season. But any of the players would be worth the money.
