Falcons Extend QB Matt Ryan’s Contract: NFL News at YouWager

Matt Ryan has signed a five-year contract extension with the Atlanta Falcons that makes him one of the NFL’s highest-paid players.

YouWager bettors can be sure that this extension does not put any pressure on the star quarterback.

Expectations are quite high for a franchise that came up 10 yards short of advancing to the Super Bowl in the previous football season.

The 28 year-old’s deal could be worth up to $103.75 million and averages $20.75 million per year. Ryan will make $63 million in the first three years of his new deal with the Falcons.

The Pennsylvania native has led the team to five straight winning NFL seasons; the franchise never had back-to-back winning seasons before his arrival. Atlanta is positive that Ryan will lead the Falcons to even greater heights.

This new contract places Ryan on a similar scale to Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning – all QBs who have won Super Bowls. Atlanta is positive that Ryan is much alike all those quarterbacks.
