Tennessee Titans CB Logan Ryan, best known for Tom Brady INT, is retiring


Logan Ryan, who played three quality seasons with the Tennessee Titans and produced one of the most iconic defensive plays in franchise history, announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons on Tuesday morning.

Ryan, 33, played cornerback for the Titans from 2017 to 2019, intercepting four passes and breaking up 37 more in 45 regular-season starts. He also started in five playoff games in a Titans uniform, with his most notable contribution being a game-winning pick-six against the New England Patriots – his former team – on January 4, 2020, to give the Titans an upset and end the Tom Brady era in Foxboro.

“Thank you to the Tennessee Titans for taking me there, becoming a franchise player and supporting RARF,” Ryan said in his retirement announcement. “My animal foundation was born there. You guys got that and we did so much on and off the field with the playoff runs.”

Ryan played four seasons with the Patriots before coming to Nashville and spent the next four seasons with the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers. He finished his NFL career with 755 tackles, 19 interceptions and 98 passes defensed. He won two Super Bowls with New England, participated in an AFC championship with the Titans and returned to the Super Bowl last season with the 49ers, albeit in defeat.
