Logan Ryan

While Eli Apple played against the Cardinals, he has had a few concerns with his health throughout the season. On a similar note, P.J. Williams and Patrick Robinson have both missed time. Obviously, adding a corner is more about the depth than the talent.

The Saints aren’t going to get a Patrick Peterson for a value that they deem acceptable. But, Logan Ryan, who is on a Titans team that certainly won’t make the playoffs, could be a quality and under-talked about target.

Ryan has played in all eight of the Titans games and has totaled at least eight combined tackles in five of the eight. He’s a veteran corner that played four straight seasons with the Patriots without missing a single game to start his career.

CBS Sports’ Cody Benjamin also noted Ryan as a target for New Orleans.

"This isn’t about a dire need as much as it’s about taking advantage of an opportunity — in this case, the Titans selling. New Orleans is already well-rounded, but they’re also banged up at cornerback and seem bent on making a serious title push."

He’s 100% correct. The Saints could use additional depth, and Ryan should be a relatively cheap option. If a fourth-round pick is the price, the Saints should at least consider pulling the trigger on the deal.
