Quarterback is the most important position in football, unless you’re the Cleveland Browns then it’s a revolving door of suck. The Atlanta Falcons know this and just invested an insane amount of money into their quarterback.
The Falcons signed Matt Ryan to a 5 year extension worth a reported $30 million a season and $100 million guaranteed. The 32 year old is two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance and now the highest paid player in the league.
Matt Ryan has agreed to a 5 year extension with @AtlantaFalcons that makes him first $30 mill per year QB w $100 mill guaranteed, per league and team sources.

This deal just took the Aaron Rodgers market to insane new heights. The price of cheese is about to rise in Wisconsin.
