Two-Time Patriots Super Bowl Champion Announces Retirement

Veteran defensive back Logan Ryan call it career. The two-time Patriots Super Bowl champion announced his retirement on Tuesday, thanking everyone he has ever worked with. Ryan had a great 11-year career filled with great memories and two championship wins. He is grateful for his NFL experience and everyone he connected with over the years.

The New England Patriots used their 83rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to get Ryan.

“Shoutout to the New England Patriots,” Ryan said. “Thank you for drafting me, believing in me, making me a two-time Super Bowl champion.”

Ryan played with five different teams. He was part of the Patriots, Tennessee Titans, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and San Francisco.

It’s interesting to note that Ryan’s longest tenure came with the Patriots. He spent four years with the team and had an opportunity to become a champion.

Ryan was on the Super Bowl winning team that helped the organization win the first title in ten years. The Patriots celebrated an amazing win over the Seattle Seahawks. Two years later, the Patriots did the same, but this time it was spectacular. Ryan and his teammates found the strength to overcome a 25-point deficit and defeat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime.

In his NFL career, Ryan delivered 755 tackles, 19 interceptions, 98 pass breakups, and 15 forced fumbles in 154 games.

Some fans may remember Logan’s interception of the last pass Tom Brady had as a Patriots quarterback. It was a good move and Ryan’s pick-six helped the Tennessee Titans secure their 20-13 win in the AFC Wild Card Round in the 2019 NFL season.

NFL analysts would agree that Ryan wasn’t an elite player, but he was definitely a key piece of every team he played on.

Ryan last played with the 49ers. He made five regular-season appearances with the team and played 78 percent of their defensive snaps in Super Bowl LVIII.

Ryan’s retirement announcement was surprising and he did add fuel to the fire, teasing fans that there’s “a lot in store.” Will he come back just like Brady did?
