QB has no concerns about the length of contract discussions as talks begin over new deal.
Atlanta Falcons Quarterback Matt Ryan has no concerns about the time it may take for his new contract to be sorted out, and believes the situation will take care of himself.
The Falcons are expected to make Ryan the next $100m Quarterback at some point, and may even pay him near or above that of fellow 2008 draft pick Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens.
There is no question that Atlanta have made the 27-year old their face of the franchise, and will do everything in their power to make sure the signal caller is there for his entire career. The same goes the other way.
Matt Ryan has an incredible amount of talent around him on the high-powered and explosive offence that the Falcons produce, and it would seem mad that he would want to leave a team that is becoming a yearly challenger for a Super Bowl title.
Speaking to the Ledger-Enquirer, Ryan admitted that the time frame is not something he is worried about.
“I understand the nature of the business and how everything operates,” Ryan said.
“At the same time, my focus has always been to just try to prepare myself to just play and let all the other stuff take care of itself.
“I’m not really too worried about it. My sole focus this off-season is to prepare myself, to work really hard and to try to give ourselves another chance like we had last year.”
Ryan has thrown for over 18,000 yards and 127 touchdowns in his five years with the team, it will only be a matter of time before a deal is made, and a large one at that.
