In the days leading up to the Super Bowl in February, Falcons owner Arthur Blank and General Manager Thomas Dimitroff were both asked about quarterback Matt Ryan’s contract.

Dimitroff said that a new deal for Ryan, who is signed through the 2018 season, would be on the team’s radar “in the near future” and Blank said Ryan “needs to be compensated well and he will be.” Ryan said, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN, that hearing that “feels really good” and having that support makes contract concerns a non-issue for him even as Derek Carr’s new deal and Matthew Stafford’s expected one raise the pay scale for quarterbacks.
