2. Cutting Logan Ryan

Cutting Logan Ryan was a move that people are still talking about. He was voted captain on the team last season and it’s hard to argue that the locker room and coaching staff really respected him on and off the field. Ryan played with a lot of heart and always gave an outstanding effort for New York.

Though he didn’t have any interceptions for the Giants last season, he did have the most solo tackles in a campaign over his nine-year career with 77. Ryan was all over the field last year making plays. He had a knack for finding the football and being a disrupter. He had two forced fumbles in 2021 and had three in 2020.

His veteran leadership will truly be missed and somebody is going to have to step up and play the other safety position along with Xavier McKinney, who had a breakout season for Big Blue last year. Ryan wasn’t cut to create cap space, as the move only created around $800,000. The team just didn’t have him in the plans for the future. He’ll be suiting up next season for Tampa Bay.
