Logan Ryan & Older Brother

Family First: Logan Gives Back to Older Brother

Logan Ryan has made a living in the NFL off interceptions and tackles. He has spent the last four seasons playing for the New England Patriots where he has compiled 13 interceptions and 243 tackles including helping the team win 2 Super Bowl champions. Recently, Ryan, who is only 26 years old, cashed in on his achievements to the tune of three years, $30 million by way of the Tennessee Titans this offseason. Like many professional athletes, he chose to give back to those he cares most about.

Ryan surprised his older brother by presenting him a check for $82,000 to pay off his student loans. His brother, 29, went to Drexel University, graduated as an honors student, and now currently works as an engineer. "He did everything the right way and still lives with a ridiculous amount of student loan debt," Ryan wrote in his announcement, which was originally posted to Instagram. "The system is broke and makes no sense!! I'm Fortunate and blessed to be able to take care of that for him."

Ryan is not shy when it comes to being vocal about what he cares about as in the past he as been known to also post about some of his other favorite causes like animal welfare, where he had customized cleats made to show support.
