Who doesn't love a good reunion?

Former Patriot Logan Ryan has gone on to spend some time with four teams since departing New England in 2017 but has remained a consistent contributor no matter where he was.

Now that his time with the Bucs appears over, it's possible that two time Super Bowl champion could finally come back to where it all started. Not to mention, Ryan has expressed his appreciation for Belichick as recently as last month during an appearance on Good Morning Football, potentially opening the door for his return to the team.

After he left in free agency to sign with the Titans, Ryan spent the next three seasons gaining more experience playing all over the secondary. He continued that when he left Tennessee and joined the Giants, playing as a safety during his two seasons there.

Knowing how much Belichick appreciates a versatile player, his continued effort to improve and gain experience all over the secondary won't go unnoticed by his former head coach. It could even become a primary reason Belichick expresses any interest in bringing Ryan back.

At 32 years old, however, his age may be a deterrent when looking for someone to replace Jack Jones. But if trusted experience and familiarity are aspects that Belichick values, Ryan could become a leading contender to be signed this summer.
