The Tennessee Titans pulled off an 18-point comeback win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Wild Card Round this past weekend to advance to the AFC divisional round against the New England Patriots.
And one particular Titan will make his return to Gillette Stadium on Saturday to face his former team.
Cornerback Logan Ryan had an impressive four years with the Patriots and was part of two Super Bowl-winning teams.
While with New England, Ryan formed a special bond with teammates Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon and said that he is looking forward to facing his old teammates and “brothers for life.” He even mentioned that they wished him good luck via text messages before every game this season.
“It would be cool, obviously a lot of fun: familiar faces, playoff game,” Ryan said. “I probably talk to Devin and Duron every day; we’re still in the same group chat. They wish me luck before every game, and I always root for them to do well.”
As for his departure with New England after last season, Ryan says that there are no hard feelings.
“They went their way, I went mine, and there is no bad blood there,” Ryan said. “You win two Super Bowls, play with Hall of Fame players, play for Hall of Fame coaches, and then going to a place like Tennessee, which wanted me. I wanted to help change something in the [defensive backs] room, chance the culture. We believe in each other, and I’m enjoying the ride.”
