Good morning and merry Christmas, New York Giants fans!

Today is a particularly merry Christmas for one Giant in particular, as the team has signed veteran DB Logan Ryan to a three year, $31 million ($20 million guaranteed) extension.

The news was first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Ryan himself quickly confirmed the signing, tweeting,

The Giants originally signed Ryan to a one-year deal back on August 31st, after the injury to Xavier McKinney left their secondary short handed. Fans, however, had been clamoring for the team to sign the veteran defensive back for much longer. Ryan’s name was frequently brought up throughout the various phases of free agency as the Giants sought to rebuild a leaky secondary.

Ryan has become an integral part of the Giants’ secondary since joining the team. His leadership, football IQ, versatility, and ability have allowed the the Giants’ defense to execute Patrick Graham’s scheme in ways they otherwise wouldn’t — not to mention weather injury and inconsistent play elsewhere in the secondary.

Looking back at Ryan’s play over the course of the 2020 season, perhaps we should count it a Christmas miracle that another team didn’t snap him up before the Giants’ hands were forced by injury.
