Matt Ryan, a former quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, has begun a new stunning chapter in his career. This is not a role as an NFL player, but one that is associated with the league.

Ryan entered the NFL after being selected by the Atlanta Falcons with the third overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. He was the team’s all-time leader in completions (2,124), quarterback victories (61), and passing yardage (23,920), leading the team almost like a real falcon. The Franchise selected him when they were in desperate need of a veteran quarterback, and he lived up to the expectations, guiding them to a 120-102 career record.

Matt Ryan is going to kick off a new chapter of his career

The 2016 MVP announced his new position as a studio and game analyst across all CBS Sports platforms on Monday in front of the NFL community. The quarterback shared the news with his fans on Twitter and appeared to be overjoyed about his new position.

“Excited to join the @NFLonCBS family! Looking forward to breaking down the game this season. P.S. – this is not a retirement post,” he wrote on Twitter.

The channel’s executive producer, Harold Bryant, expressed his excitement over hiring such a gifted veteran quarterback as their analyst and expressed the hope that Matt would use his 15 years of league experience to benefit their viewers and significantly contribute to the channel’s growth.

“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,”  Bryant said. “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. We look forward to Matt sharing his knowledge, insight and opinions with our viewers and bolstering our NFL coverage.”

After 14 years as the quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons, the 37-year-old was traded to the Indianapolis Colts last offseason. But, he never saw a green light in Indianapolis and after just one season he was released by the Colts in March.

Though carrying a job at the same time will probably be a hassle for Matt, an All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler,  as he hasn’t made up his mind to leave the profession of an athlete yet.
