AFC Notes: Ryan, Jets, Texans

Since signing his three-year, $30MM contract with the Titans earlier this offseason, cornerback Logan Ryan has already used a chunk of that money to pay off his brother’s student loans. As Marissa Payne of the Washington Post writes, the former Patriots defensive back paid off the entirety of the $82,000 left on the loans.

“My man got accepted to college, graduated with honors, and now works as an engineer,” Ryan wrote on Instagram. “He did everything the right way and still lives with a ridiculous amount of student loan debt. The system is broke and makes no sense!! I’m Fortunate and blessed to be able to take care of that for him.”

The 26-year-old joined Tennessee this offseason after spending four seasons with the Patriots. The former third-rounder hasn’t missed a regular season game during his four-year career, and he’s averaged more than three interceptions and 10 passes defended per year. Roster Resource has Ryan slotted in as the Titans’ starting cornerback with Adoree’ Jackson.

Let’s check out some more notes from around the AFC…

  • Undrafted rookie lineman Chris Bordelon has a chance to make the Jets regular season roster, writes Connor Hughes of NJ.com. The Nicholls State product can move around the offensive line, and his versatility might earn him a reserve role with the squad. Hughes also lists wide receivers K.D. Cannon and Gabe Marks, fullback Anthony Firkser, cornerback Xavier Coleman, and linebacker Connor Harris as other undrafted rookies who could crack the 53-man roster.
  • Texans rookie offensive lineman Julién Davenport could be in line for a large role this season, and coach Bill O’Brien already likes what he’s seen from the fourth-rounder. “I like Julién,” O’Brien told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “He’s a rookie, so they’re all learning. It’s tough in no pads. I think the true test for a lineman is when the full pads are on in camp, but so far he’s smart, he works hard, he’s got a good skillset for that position. So far, so good, but again the true test for lineman is when they put pads on.”
