Logan Ryan slipped in a backhanded compliment when congratulating Jason McCourty for joining the Patriots

Former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan thinks Jason McCourty will fit right into New England’s secondary, but his reasoning has nothing to do with the 30-year-old’s defensive style.

After the Browns announced they had traded McCourty to the Patriots, Ryan first gave McCourty a shoutout for finally teaming up with his twin brother, Devin, before pointing out a distinct feature the two share with another Patriots defensive back.

“Add in Duron Harmon and you got the baldest DB core to ever do it lol!!! Congrats Jmac! Great Fit!!” Ryan wrote.

Ryan played four seasons with Devin and Harmon in New England before signing with the Titans in 2017. Ryan, Harmon, and both McCourtys all also played college football at Rutgers.


Other Patriots, past and present, got a kick out of Ryan’s dig. Fellow defensive back Patrick Chung, special teamer Nate Ebner, and retired linebacker Rob Ninkovich all expressed their amusement on Twitter.
