If the Miami Dolphins want to add Logan Ryan to their revamped secondary, they will reportedly have to pay a substantial price to make it happen.  

Per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Ryan's agents have told the Dolphins the veteran cornerback is seeking a deal worth more than $10 million annually. 

Ryan is one of the few remaining high-end players still available since free agency began on March 18. The 29-year-old played every defensive snap in 17 of 19 games for the Tennessee Titans last season, including the postseason. 

On March 19, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Ryan told him he will entertain all offers and would consider a short-term deal but wouldn't take less than the $10 million he made with the Titans in 2019. 

Per Sam Monson and Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus, Ryan has had above-average coverage grades between 62.0 and 76.2 as a slot defender in each of the past seven seasons.

The Dolphins have already heavily invested in their secondary this offseason. Byron Jones received the largest deal ever given to a cornerback at five years and $82.5 million. They also signed safety Clayton Fejedelem and brought back Adrian Colbert. 

Ryan has appeared in 109 games for the Titans and New England Patriots in his NFL career. He set career-highs with 113 combined tackles, 4.5 sacks and 18 pass breakups last season.
