Former NFL MVP Matt Ryan is joining CBS Sports as an NFL analyst, the TV network announced Monday.
The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback will serve as both a studio and game analyst across all CBS Sports platforms.
“As one of the NFL’s marquee quarterbacks for the past 15 years, we’re thrilled to add Matt to our talented roster of NFL analysts,” CBS Sports executive vice president Harold Bryant said in a statement. “He has played the game at the highest level, including winning an MVP award and taking his team to the Super Bowl, and will bring a fresh perspective to CBS Sports.”
Ryan wrote on Twitter that he’s “excited” by the move, but added that he’s not necessarily hanging up his cleats.
Ryan played last year for the Indianapolis Colts, who acquired him via trade from the Atlanta Falcons during the 2022 offseason. Indianapolis released the 37-year-old after a disappointing 2022 campaign in which the veteran signal-caller tossed 14 touchdowns to 13 interceptions in 12 games.
Before joining the Colts, Ryan put on a show with the Falcons, with whom he spent his first 14 NFL seasons. The Boston College product ranks in the top 10 in league history with 62,792 passing yards and 381 touchdown passes.
The third overall pick in 2008, Ryan established himself as one of the best quarterbacks of his era and guided Atlanta to six playoff berths, including a Super Bowl appearance. He was named NFL MVP in 2016 after racking up 4,944 yards and 38 touchdowns. Ryan also led the Falcons to Super Bowl LI that season but fell short against the New England Patriots.
