The Falcons announced the signing of top draft pick Matt Ryan today. Ryan is the second first round pick to sign, following No. 1 overall selection Jake Long’s agreement the week prior to the draft.
The move is a bit of a surprise considering that Ryan’s agent Tom Condon is notorious for having high profile holdouts when it comes to top quarterback clients.
UPDATE: Reportedly, Ryan’s deal is a six-year contract worth $72 million in total with $34.5 million guaranteed. The guaranteed money exceeds the reported terms of Long’s deal which included $30 million guaranteed.
