The Colts guaranteed Ryan's Base Salary of $12,706,000 for the 2022 season, and guaranteed $12,000,000 of his $21,706,000 Base Salary for 2023.   Btw the Colts have a $18,706,000 cap-hit for Ryan in 2022 ($12,706,000 guaranteed Base Salary + $6 million prorated bonus).   If the Colts were to cut Ryan before the 2023 begins, they would have a dead-cap hit of $18,000,000 for 2023 ($12 million guaranteed amount + remaining $6 million prorated bonus). If the Colts do not cut Ryan in 2023, then they are looking at a cap-hit of $35,206,000.

"Matt Ryan’s contract is the main reason he won’t play for the Colts again this year

Sam Ehlinger officially becomes the starting quarterback of the Colts. If he fails or gets injured, Nick Foles will take over. And if Foles gets injured, the quarterback will be anyone but Matt Ryan.

Ryan is done. He’s out. He won’t play again, for reasons rooted in his contract. Put simply, once the team decided (and it was clear from coach Frank Reich’s comments that owner Jim Irsay made the decision) that Ryan won’t be the quarterback in 2023, it was time to pull the plug on 2022.

Ryan’s contract already pays him $12 million in base salary next year, fully guaranteed. But millions more would become fully guaranteed if Ryan suffers an injury that keeps him from passing a physical by the third day of the 2023 league year in March, when the payments that are currently guaranteed for injury become fully guaranteed.

Specifically, Ryan has $7.205 million in additional 2023 salary guaranteed for injury, and a 2023 roster bonus of $10 million, which is also guaranteed for injury. That’s $17.205 million that the Colts would potentially owe Ryan (in addition to the $12 million) if he emerges from the 2022 season with an injury that prevents him from passing a physical by the middle of March.

That’s why Ryan won’t be playing again for the Colts in 2022. He could, in theory, be traded before next Tuesday. His performances through seven weeks of the current season, however, will surely cause any/every team to shy away from Ryan and his contract, regardless of whether a starter suffers a season-ending injury this weekend.

The question then becomes whether the Colts would cut Ryan after the trade deadline. He may ask to be released. The Colts may wait for the right moment to dump him, thinking that a potential quarterback-needy team may claim his contract on waivers.

Again, it’s unlikely. He is, by all appearances, done. No every quarterback will have his arm beyond his fortieth birthday. For the 37-year-old Ryan, too many of his throws now look like what John Madden used to call the last shot out of a Roman candle.

Ryan has had a great career. He was an MVP. He did everything in his power to win a Super Bowl. He recently passed Dan Marino to become No. 7 on the all-time passing yardage list.

Matt Ryan has a solid case for Canton. At this point, however, continuing to play could eventually hurt his cause. And so, as it was when the Vikings benched Donovan McNabb for Christian Ponder in 2011 and later released McNabb, it may simply be over for Ryan.

Even if it is, he’ll still make $12 million next year to not play pro football. The Colts, at this point, are simply hoping to be sure he doesn’t get $17.205 million more.

I still don't get why the thought remains if Matt is QB, he will get a ring. This season should have destroyed that narrative. He needs help just like the rest. Same thing happened with Tennessee when Julio was traded there. People foolishly put them directly in the Super Bowl without taking into consideration all of the negative things that can happen during a football season. 

Speak brother. Ryan will win his first ring like how Brady will win his 8th…as a backup to Patrick Mahomes lol

That’s not even close to being accurate lol. I mean come on man😂😂the numbers don’t back it up. And by numbers I mean actual sacks and pressures. It’s not close. The Bears and Bengals o line were horrible at pass protection last year 

If you've watched any of the colts games this year you would see that yeah they've been that bad.

There have been times where he's been getting sacked when he hasn't even completed his dropback.

And the numbers actually do hold up because they actually have a lot of the most quarterback hits all year..

If you would have told me in March that MR career would be over about 7 months later I would have called you crazy. What a sad way for such a great guy to go out. I don't think anyone will give him another chance and at this point it's probably best he rides off into the sunset with his family. 

I hope to see him someday on one of these pregame shows. If Vick can do it, Ryan certainly can.

Matt is a robot.... you've watched enough post game pressers to see that ...I love the dude but he has no personality for TV...

Name one person that is "entertaining" in their post game pressers. They are there because they have to be. They say the right things and keep it moving. Only time its entertaining is when someone has an outburst or says something stupid. Ryan is pure class so people take that as "being a robot".

Go watch Ryan interview with Pat Mcafee this past offseason you will see the more fun spirited side of him

Yeah it does. Irsay is an ***hole. 

I mean they are 3-3-1.

They are not even close to being out of contention. And he (Ryan) isn't their biggest problem.

It will be interesting to see what kind of coach he ends up getting next year.

The top coaching candidates are going to see stuff like this it may be a bone of contention for them.
