Logan Ryan, a longtime Patriot cornerback, signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Tennessee Titans this offseason, and one of his first moves was to take care of family: specifically, paying off $82,000 in student loans his brother had accrued. Ryan presented his brother with a novelty check on his 29th birthday:
“Surprised my big bro and paid off his student loans for his 29th Bday!!” Ryan wrote. “My man got accepted to college, graduated with honors, and now works as an engineer. 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.. Love you big bro you deserve it!!”
(Side note: take a look at the check’s memo for a little more truth about what Ryan really thinks about student loans.)
Ryan had 92 tackles in 2016, the most of any cornerback in the league. A two-time Super Bowl champion during his four years with New England, he’s expected to be a major contributor to a young but upward-trending Titans team.
