https://t.co/fXOkUtl6IS My chapter in Tennessee has come to a close. To the @Titans fans: Thank you for all the love. The energy and support this past season is what led to an epic run.

"I'm looking forward to continue to play at an elite level for a organization that's a great fit for my family and me," he wrote.

Ryan spent the past three years with the Titans while starting all 45 games he played in this stretch.

"One of the top players still available on the open market who can add versatility and impact to a secondary somewhere," ESPN's Field Yates wrote.

The 29-year-old led the Titans with 113 tackles in 2019, adding four interceptions, four forced fumbles and 4.5 sacks.

He's just the fourth person to tally at least four picks, four sacks and four forced fumbles since 1993 when forced fumbles were first tracked, per Pro Football Reference.

Adding his four years of experience with the New England Patriots, which featured two Super Bowl titles, Ryan has a lot to bring to a new organization.

Tennessee will try to replace him with veteran Johnathan Joseph, who signed with the team in free agency. The squad also used its second-round pick on LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton.
