Atlanta Falcons Sign Matt Ryan To 5-Year Extension

Congratulations are in order for Matt Ryan who just signed a 5-year, $103.75 million extension that will run through the 2018 season, $59 million of which is guaranteed.

That is quite a bit of money, but considering the aging of Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Tom Brady, in a season or two Ryan could be widely considered a top-5 quarterback in the NFL.

He lacks superior arm strength and has issues in the pocket, but is a smart quarterback who most times can get the ball to his target.

Look for him to once again be a solid QB1 in any fantasy football league and consider him as a solid option after all of the top choices are off the board.
