Matt Ryan, Falcons Agree To Record-Setting New Contract

Falcons reportedly make Matt Ryan highest-paid player in NFL history

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan reportedly agreed to a five-year $150 million extension with the Falcons on Thursday.

Stafford set a new market with his five-year, $135 million deal last summer. He has passed for almost 42,000 yards and 260 touchdowns in his career, winning the MVP award in 2016. The good news for Ryan is the Falcons added yet another weapon at wide receiver in former Alabama standout Calvin Ridley in an effort to help the offense return close to its 2016 form. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial terms of the deal were not released. That surpasses the total compensation of the $84 million, three-year guaranteed deal that quarterback Kirk Cousins received from the Minnesota Vikings.

Cousins held that title for a few weeks.

It is expected that Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will soon join Rodgers in the $30M+ per year club, and will likely eclipse Ryan's record-breaking deal.

"This extension was our primary focus this offseason", said General Manager Thomas Dimitroff in a statement.
