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."

"We can do better in so many different ways. In a lot of cases it is just subtle things. It's a subtle thing here and there that might get you one extra first down, or allow you to convert maybe one more time in a short-yard situation or in the red zone. Or give you one more big-play opportunity per game that could change a game, or win you one or two more games. As we know, if you can do something that wins you one more game, you have home-field advantage instead of having to travel for the divisional round."
