Beginning November 3, the NFL Players Podcast, an evolution of the NFL Legends Podcast, will launch with new episodes every Wednesday.
Hosted by New York Giants captain Logan Ryan, Legend and Walter Payton Man of the Year recipient Charles “Peanut” Tillman and Pro Football Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams, the NFL Players Podcast is a candid, unscripted podcast sharing the stories and personal journeys of NFL players – as told by the players.
Earlier this year, iHeartMedia, the number one podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac and the NFL announced an exclusive podcast partnership to launch the NFL’s podcast network, which included the distribution of NFL Media’s existing podcasts.
“In an effort to further elevate the voices of players and tell their stories on and off the field, we’re excited to provide them with a platform through the NFL Players Podcast,” said TRACY PERLMAN, NFL Senior Vice President of Player Operations.
“This series was developed in collaboration with players and Legends, with some of our best, acting as hosts of the show. It’s truly for the players, by the players.”
The NFL Players Podcast will be the trusted source for the NFL’s players’ community to share their personal journeys.
Through sharing stories about their career and life after their playing days, this podcast will present a true portrait of the players’ community.
“Over the years, I’ve learned a lot and I have a story to tell,” Ryan said. “I want to share my experience with other players and legends, along with the fans.
I hope this is going to be a voice for the players to tell their stories about their families, the grind, and the realities of playing in the NFL
