Logan Ryan Agrees to Deal With Patriots, Becoming Third Rookie to Sign

The Patriots are continuing to make progress with the eight rookies on their roster.

Cornerback Logan Ryan, who was selected in the third round, became the third Patriots player to sign with the team on Thursday. Ryan confirmed the deal with an excited Tweet about his new deal.

Ryan, a standout the past two seasons at Rutgers, joins a crowded cornerback group that includes veterans Kyle Arrington, Marquice Cole, Alfonzo DennardRas-I Dowling and Aqib Talib. Ryan also joins his fellow Rutgers rookies, linebacker Steve Beauaharnais seventh round) and safety Duron Harmon (third round) as the first three under contract.

His contract should be similar to Harmon’s four-year, $2.7 million deal, as they were picked just eight slots apart. Ryan should get a bit higher in total value and something similar to Harmon’s $533,600 signing bonus.
