Report: Matt Ryan Will Get More Money Than Joe Flacco


Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has had a quiet off-season, while several of peers have cashed in with mega contracts.

Ryan has always reiterated that he wasn’t worried about a new contract, and now we may know why.  Ryan may not know when it’s going to come, but when it does, he’ll be paid extremely well.

Pro Football Zone via Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports is reporting that contract talks for Ryan are on going, and he can expect to make more than Joe Flacco when it’s all said and done.

I’m not sure Matt Ryan will get the $22 million per year Aaron Rodgers received, but he is on par for a contract that rivals Flacco, Romo, and Stafford, somewhere in the $20-$21 million a year range.
