That hoped died Tuesday when the Titans the numbers being assigned to their new players and 2nd round pick Kristian Fulton was award Ryan’s #26. There is no louder way to say a player is not coming back that reassigning his number.

Ryan has been silent since free agency began in March, but a short time later put out his goodbye to Nashville on social media.

“To the Titans fans: Thank you for all the love. The energy and support this past season what led to an epic run.

To my Titans Teammates: I love all y’all. Being a leader and earning y’all respect is what meant most to me. Win or lose we stuck together and backed down from no one. (Hyenas)

To the Animal Welfare Community: My foundation @rarf was founded and blossomed in TN. All those working hard to support our four legged friends I’m forever grateful.

I’m looking forward to continue to play at an elite level for a organization that’s a great fit for my family and me.

Everybody stay Safe and Positive during these crazy times.26 out #MMCNB
