Now the league’s highest-paid player, Matt Ryan wants a championship

Matt Ryan figures he has two goals — win as many Super Bowls as possible and earn as much as possible. He’s still waiting on the first Super Bowl title, but the Falcons quarterback is set for life after signing a five-year, $150 million contract that makes him the league’s highest-paid player.

“I’ve always felt like that your job as a player is to go earn every dollar,” Ryan said Monday, via D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Have that mindset that every day you wake up: It’s about working as hard as you possibly can. I guess it’s more incentive for me moving forward for me to play my best football as I continue to mature in this league.”

Ryan, who turns 33 later this month, has posted a 95-63 regular-season record since the Falcons made him the third overall pick in 2008. The four-time Pro Bowler has taken the Falcons to the playoffs six times, winning the NFC title once and nearly Super Bowl LI.

He had a championship… all he had to do was hand off a few more times and leave the field for the punt team.
28-3 lives on!

Re: Now the league’s highest-paid player, Matt Ryan wants a championship

Falcons owner Arthur Blank called Ryan “an elite quarterback,..."

6th in yards
8th in %
8th in yds/att
Had < 2/1 TD to INT
15th in passer rating

Apparently Arther Blank doesn't know what the word "elite" means.

Well played sir!


That said, the whole "highest paid player in the league" thing only lasts until the next big name signs their contract. Enjoy it while you can Mr. Ryan.
