The Falcons & Golds seem to have concluded a deal to send Matt Ryan to Indianapolis, which, according to several reports, could end Ryan’s 14-year career in Atlanta and leave the team in search of a new franchise quarterback.
Prior to Atlanta’s desperate attempt to trade with Teshan Watson, the Golds had been the rumored landing ground for Ryan for weeks, and they were still the most logical landing spot in the quarterfinals as a play-off-caliber team at the AFC. We have no word on what the compensation will be or when it can be done, but both sides seem to be close.
Scoopage: The Golds are now trying to trade with Atlanta for QB Matt Ryan @nflonfox. Not finished yet but trying to make the final
– Jay Glazer (ayJayGlazer) March 21, 2022
Pat McAfee, a longtime Golds racer, says he still has strong ties with the company and the deal is all over. He also says it could only be for a third-round player.
After cycling through Philip Rivers (who was still good) and Carson Vents (who melted at the end of the year), the Golds hope to finish their quarterback carousel on Ryan shortly. He will land on a team that is not among the AFC elites, but can advance one step with a quality season and someone consistent like Ryan at the helm of the offense. Ryan is not at the peak of his strengths, but he’s still a good quarterback, and are in perfect shape in the cycle of making the Golds team to bring him.
Meanwhile, the Falcons hope to get as much compensation as possible for Ryan. All offseason seemed to go one more year ahead with Ryan — they were ready to free up space to restructure his contract — but now they will go this year and find several quarterbacks to do so. This year. It remains to be seen whether they will be able to develop a player who can take control of the offense in the long run at 2022 or whether they will have to wait until 2023 to be considered a strong quarterback class, but suffice it to say this team. This year saw not one but two projects smoke for the post.
Eventually, if this trade happens, they will move on from the quarterbacks they drafted with the third overall Big Pack in 2008, who has been the team’s starter ever since. Ryan tops the team leaderboard in every notable passing division and, frankly, there will be no shortage of career highlights to come out when the Falcons say goodbye to him. I can not imagine many people with the right, Ryan himself, thought it could be like this.
The Falcons should have known that after Watson’s business attempt, first as a “longshot” and then as a finalist, they would move Ryan if they won or move him if they failed. A player who has spent many years with you, even partially pushed out, is hard to walk after. After Watson selected Cleveland, the Falcons discovered themselves, and now a team is slowly trying to find a new franchise quarterback that seems to be rebuilding. Let’s see if this deal goes through today.
Below is the original story.
The Atlanta Falcons Have dug themselves into a pit with its most recent setback. The team was successfully used by Deeshan Watson for more money Cleveland Browns. For other teams in Watson, like the Panthers and Saints, their search for a quarterback continues. For the Falcons, who left Cleveland to return to the Watson race because they did not know what Ryan would do, it was not yet clear what Ryan could do.
Obviously there are two options: (1) trade before Ryan guarantees a $ 7.5 million option at 4pm on Monday or (2) keep Ryan in 2022 and pay him more. Even without Watson landing, Watson’s catastrophic cost appears to be high for the Falcons. Ian Rapoport had the latest.
The # Hawks Over the past few days, QB has been focusing on Matt Ryan, according to sources close to the matter. If Ryan is on the list at 4pm he will receive a $ 7.5M roster bonus from ATL, so today is the deadline for decision making. It could be a trade-off or a return to ATL, perhaps sweeter.

This is a major change since the appearance of the Balkans earlier this month Uninterested in business Ryan. The pessimistic teams then found the footprints. Now it is clear that Atlanta is in a bad place no matter what teams Ryan has. It can’t compete this year because it has burned its relationship with Ryan. His value has plummeted.
If the Falcons had Ryan, that “sweet” would be millions of dollars. The problem with Atlanta is that there is no backup plan without Ryan. Your Honorable Backup / Initial Level Quarterbacks are signed. Some quarterbacks in the draft are expected to launch in year 1. Starting a rookie without blocking or passing catchers is the best recipe for ruining that rookie’s life.
The whole situation is confusing. There are no good opportunities in Atlanta. It could have kept Ryan, but it would have admitted a major financial apology. If it does not retain Ryan, there are no good chances to replace him, which will basically be the default in the multi-year restructuring.
Ryan’s future will be known on Monday at 4 p.m.
