Matt Ryan arms raised

Falcons Back Wheelbarrow Up, Extend Matt Ryan

Oh that Thomas Dimitroff, what a tease he is. He waits all off-season and then on the day that Falcons training camp starts he finally gets the Ryan deal done.

It's a five year $103.75 million dollare deal with $59 million guaranteed. Or in other words, more money then you will ever see in your life. In terms of average salary Ryan now trails only Aaron Rodgers and in terms of guaranteed money he trails only Drew Brees.

Mike Smith and Thomas Dimitroff have built this team around Ryan and now they have made sure that he will have a chance over the next few years to try and take the Falcons to heights they've never been.
