Report: Falcons discussing contract extension for QB Ryan

The SportsXchange

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan spent Sunday trying to be the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game, be he and the Falcons have already begun talks about a contract extension, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday.

According to Glazer, that deal will take on the look of a "mega-contract."

The 2013 season will be the final year of Ryan's six-year deal worth $66 million. He is scheduled to be paid $10 million next season, but, according to the report, the Falcons may want to discard the final year of that deal and reward Ryan with a new contract.

Speculation is that a new multiyear deal for Ryan could be worth about $100 million.

Ryan has a 56-22 regular-season record as Atlanta's starting quarterback, including 13-3 in 2012.
