49ers sign Logan Ryan, waive Ty Davis-Price ahead of Seahawks game

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the San Francisco 49ers have signed veteran safety Logan Ryan, who most recently played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2022) and New York Giants (2020–21). Ryan played cornerback for his first seven seasons before moving to safety in 2020 with the Giants. He also has special teams experience.


According to the NFL transaction wire, which confirmed the Ryan signing, the 49ers also waived running back Tyrion Davis-Price, a former third-round draft pick. Davis-Price appeared in seven games through his two NFL seasons, rushing for 120 yards on 40 carries.

The 49ers were thin at the position after losing Talanoa Hufanga and George Odum to injuries. Hufanga suffered a season-ending ACL injury on November 19, while Odum sustained a torn biceps on November 23.

The New England Patriots made Ryan (5-11, 195) a third-round selection (No. 83 overall) out of Rutgers in 2013. Last season with the Buccaneers, he recorded 37 tackles, a tackle for a loss, an interception, three passes defensed, and a fumble recovery through nine games, including six starts, per Pro Football Reference.

Throughout his 10 NFL seasons, Ryan has racked up 742 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss, 26 quarterback hits, 19 interceptions, a touchdown, 98 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles, and 13 sacks. He has appeared in 149 games, with 121 starts.

The acquisition of Ryan potentially bolsters the 49ers' defensive lineup and addresses the void left by recent injuries while adding valuable experience to the team.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield. However, Kiper has the team going in another direction. He proposes adding a pass rusher to complement defensive end Nick Bosa on the opposite side.
