Post Matt Ryan signs 6yr., $72 million dollar deal

Matt Ryan has signed a 6 year deal worth 72 million dollars, according to ESPNews.

From what I know he's the first rookie to sign. This is a big deal considering it took Quinn and Russell forever to get a contract done, so the question is now, will he start week 1?

I don't think he does, week 2 after Redman and Harrington show their inadequacy.

The rookie pay scale is so stupid. Falcons are smart for getting the deal done, and getting this kid into camp. Falcons are dumb because they just gave a rookie QB more money than Tony Romo (if I am not mistaken). Just plain crazy!

6 years with max value of 72M, assuming he hits all the triggers, with 34.75M guaranteed.

Amazing that he could make more money than Tony Romo, but that's the system for you.

Best news is that the Falcons and Ryan got this done so early, way to go for both parties. Especially for a QB, nice job.

there is no rookie pay scale, that would solve these problems.....

but anyway, good for the falcons. hopefully this starts of a trend of rookies signing quickly this year.

The Falcons were going to pay whoever they drafted huge money, it's not them it's the 3rd overall pick. Just like the Dolphins paid for Jake Long, and so on.

It is what it is. The important thing is that they got the deal done, unlike Russell and the Raiders last year, and can just move forward with football.

Good for us and Ryan. However that quite a bit of money, and this is a guy I was very back and forth on. I'm a wee bit nervous. Can't get much worse though.

You'll see a glut of players signed today, but anyone who doesn't sign today will probably enter into a protracted contract battle, due to the CBA.

I would say this is more of the teams doing, I think if you get offered the largest rookie contract in the history of the NFL, you take it. Although it is rediculous.

Thank God we finally have a rookie without the big head. Excellent move by Ryan and the Falcons - the Vick era is dead and they can move on week 1 with Ryan under centre. If only more rookies took this attitude and actually proved themselves on the NFL field before holding out for the big bucks.

Hopefully Geo is right about the incentives deal. Thats alot of money.

But I am pretty ridiculously happy that he has signed already. I guess all things point to him starting day 1. I am loving the fact that he will not be holding out.

A lot of money, but his progression will be helped and he should have a legit shot at starting from day one.

This is why the old CBA had to go. The NFL needs to get their act together and implement and NBA style rookie pay scale.

the only problem is that they would have to make some concessions to the players union to get that in the new CBA and the whole reason they nixed the old one was because they felt they were already making too many monetary concessions....

It would have been tough for Ryan to hold out with that type of money on the table. The Falcons made it a pretty easy decision for him.

Not really. Arthur Blank just agreed to pay him as much as $72 million. What's Ryan gonna do, say "no thanks" in the hopes that St. Louis signs Chris Long to a six-year, $85 million deal?
