Logan Ryan Talks Bucs Transition

June 1st, 2022

New Bucs DB Logan Ryan

With everyone healthy, the Bucs have impressive depth in their secondary.

A huge piece of that puzzle is versatile newcomer Logan Ryan, the former Patriots, Titans and Giants standout cornerback/safety, who also is a noted Rondé Barber stalker.

Ryan hopped on The Jim Rome Show today on CBS Sports Radio and shared how much he’s enjoyed and appreciated his transition to the Buccaneers in his 10th NFL season.

Ryan noted how he likes how Todd Bowles played safety in the NFL and he’s enjoyed the challenge of learning a new defense.

Coming from the Giants, Ryan said, he appreciates the Patriots-like vibe at One Buc Palace.

The Bucs are “a team with high expectations, Super Bowl expectations. That’s the standard,” Ryan said. “Take it one day at a time but [in New England] it was Super Bowl or it’s a bad year. I think that’s what it is in Tampa. Obviously when you’re playing with Tom Brady, that’s the standard that he brings. … I’m excited to get back to that.”

Ryan was adamant to Rome that Brady and Michael Jordan are the greatest leaders in sports history, and that it’s almost hard to describe the level on which Brady operates.

As for his play on the Bucs practice field, which is of greatest interest to Joe, Ryan said he’s learning everything. And with a Tampa Bay roster loaded with defensive talent, he doesn’t expect his role to be defined for months. “We will carve that out in training camp,” Ryan said.

Ryan is looking forward to being a do-it-all defensive back. “I think a similar role of multiple spots. Obviously some safety position. I think you’ll see me also in the slot, as well, and moving around as a blitzer and just [an] active player,” Ryan said.

    Damn !
    Did his parents bind his head between 2 boards while his skull was forming ?
    Or is there a distortion in the photo ?

    I don’t know about the shape of his skull/brain…..but it functions very, very well……this is one extremely smart player.

    Our back end has lacked experience for several years now

    Ryan brings a cerebral veteran presence to help AWII et al develop to that next level – I would bet Bowles wanted this last year and the debacle of the Rams loss finally made his voice heard

    The HC was an amazing SS in this league, he knows just how important the veteran reading and reaction time impacts play calling and adjusting on the fly on the field for the D

  7. Riskitbiskit Says:

    So y’all just going to knock a new player that will be a centerpiece of a possible championship team based on his looks? Got it 🤯

  8. Trey Long Says:

    Ryan was a stalwart on Belichick Super Bowl winning defenses. I’m happy he’s back with TB12

    This is a great get. So was

    Keanu Neal. Great job fortifying the secondary but it will all be for naught if they don’t do a better job fixing the pass rush.

    Love the attitude !


  12. IrishMist Says:

    Well he’s always been known as a cerebral player. Let’s just hope his new contract doesn’t go to his head.

  13. Goatfarmer Says:

    Bowles defense requires a PhD level intelligence to master. Unfortunately, dudes who have been hit in the head their whole lives may not qualify for MENSA membership/ The more brains we can put in the defensive backfield the better. Another reason to sign Suh back — dude is wicked smart.

  14. Goatfarmer Says:

    And yes I realize Suh plays DL. He knows what everyone is supposed to do.

  15. Dooley Says:

    I can remember back before the 2013 draft hoping the rockstar would draft Logan Ryan, but I’ll say we’re getting a much better version of Logan Ryan now as a seasoned vet 9 years later. Smart guy, you can tell that just hearing him speak and it’s even better cause he plays that way. We’ve had the Sapp visit, time to get Ronde out there to chop it up with our DBs.

    Where’s the Super Bowl played this year?
