The former University of Regina Ram and Sheldon-Williams Spartanbegan his career in 2004, when the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers selected him 24th-overall in the Canadian College Draft. He eventually signed with the Green Bay Packers in 2006, where he played for two seasons before joining the Seattle Seahawks in 2008.
In a decade with Seattle, Ryan appeared in 159 games and averaged 44.8 yards per punt. He also has a Super Bowl ring after the Seahawks defeated Denver 43-8 to win Super Bowl 48 on February 2, 2014.
In the NFC championship game that year, Ryan threw a touchdown pass in a play to start a Seattle comeback as they defeated the Green Bay Packers
