Matt Ryan hopes to still be going strong at 43

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is the second-youngest starter in the NFC South. But thatís only because two of the others are in their 40s.

Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP, enters his thirteenth NFL season at the age of 35. How much longer does he want to play?

ďIíd like to chase those guys,Ē Ryan said on #PFTPM, regarding Brees and Brady. ďI feel good. My body feels good. Iím still as excited about this as ever. I still feel like Iím playing really good football. And I feel like my best is still in front of me. Iíll take it one day at a time for sure. Iím doing everything I can to ensure that I can play as long as I can go. And so Iím excited about that. Hopefully, I can be 43 and sitting here having this same interview with you about being excited for an upcoming season.Ē

Given the fact that plenty of franchise quarterbacks have finished their careers elsewhere (and that it seems to be coming for Aaron Rodgers), has Ryan considered the possibility that his desire to play with outlast the teamís desire to have him play for the Falcons?

ďIíll get there when I get there,Ē he said. ďAt this point I havenít had that feeling. I havenít had that come up or that situation in front of me. But everybodyís career arc is different, right? And everybodyís career goes in different directions. And so one of the things Iíve think Iíve learned along the way is to worry about today, worry about this year and this season and worry about the next one next year. And go from there. So weíll cross that bridge if and when we get there.Ē
