Sounds like we should have gotten more than a 4th round draft pick...

This season with the Eagles, Ryans has played 99.7 percent of the snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. That has resulted in 146 tackles and 16 tackles for a loss, per the stats kept by the team. As Sheil has brought to light, no player in the Andy Reid era has posted more tackles for a loss in a season.
Which makes me wonder why anyone thinks Ryans is going anywhere.

He's their Cushing. He will be the one that stays on the field, while the other guy will be the one replaced by a safety... actually, that guy would probably stay on as well, as most 3-4 teams don't remove their ILBs on passing downs. Most will go with a nickel, removing the NT. If they go to a dime then they'll take that other LB off the field, but again, most teams do not do that as often as we do.
