Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is entering the last year of a $72 million contract, and could be the next quarterback to join the $100 million dollar club with his next contract. Baltimore Raven's QB Joe Flacco's new contract is a comparable for Ryan's next deal, according to Andrew Brandt of ESPN. "It's yet another comparable and data point for Matt Ryan," said Andrew Brandt, ESPN's NFL business analyst and former chief negotiator for the Green Bay Packers. "The gold standard was Drew Brees, at least on the average at $20 million (per season). Now, you have $20.1 million. It's certainly a place they could look at as the freshest data point."

Cleveland Browns QB Brandon Weeden said he is looking forward to competition in training camp. "I expect competition. That's the way professional sports are. Unless you're Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees or these guys, you might as well expect for somebody to try to come take your job," Weeden said "That's part of the business. But it's also the fun part. You get to compete and try to be a winner."

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees initially laughed when asked about the possibility of the team pursuing San Francisco 49ers WR Randy Moss in the offseason; however, the quarterback pointed out that when Moss worked out for the Saints during his 2011 retirement, the coaches told him that Moss "can still run." Moss has not been happy with his role in the 49ers offense this season.

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz never thought about making a quarterback change in the team's Week 15 game.
