Does Ryan restructure his contract?

24 posts in this topic

Merry Christmas everyone! 

If Im correct, Brees / Brady restructured their contracts past offseason to allow front office to go aggressive in F.A.

Do yall believe Matt Ryan consders that option? For a year or two go ALL IN for Falcons?

Does anyone have cap #s for Falcons for upcoming season to see how much leverage we have?

No need to...his contract affords us the ability to sign players still.  Now in two years he might need to though.

Hopefully by that time we'll have a Lombardi

His contract have us an additional $4M this season already. His cap hit isn't jacking up until 2020. 

Plus you really don't restructure 1 year in. 

So we gotta clinch Lombardi before then. Gotcha!

Mack & Matthews are worth every penny! 

 

Mathews yes, Mack probably. Rest of the OL is garbage. Levite’s is gone so that will save some space. Fusco was disaster and schraeder even bigger disaster.

Mack probably?! Hes an absolute STUD! Hes the heart and soul of our offense....its the most cerebral and toughest position to play and hes mastered it for sooo many years. A true class act!

Rest ALL pieces on oline needs to toughen up and improvise in run blocking schemes. Thats where we lack big time. Even if we had Gurley he wouldnt be able to do ****.

No, Brees didn't restructure his contract. He signed a 2 year extension.  He has a bigger cap hit than Ryan this year and next. He's the 7th highest paid QB this year with a 24 mil cap hit, with a signing bonus he doesn't have to give back if he retires and has a cap hit of 35 mil next year. Brees is currently scheduled to have the highest  QB cap hit next year.  That's not excessively team friendly.

Brady didn't restructure until he was 38 years old. When Brees and Brady were Ryan's age, they were the highest paid QBs too.

Ryan has the 15th highest cap hit for a QB this year, will be 13th in cap hit next year. He's not hurting the team.

Nope. The team Salary cap will probably go up twice by then anyway, and we'll see his cap hit as a percentage of the total team cap will probably be about what it is now.

Mack got bullied for most of the season. He picked up last two games. Mathews was the only guy who played consistently at high level. I am all with Mack but he took a step back this season.
