Atlanta Falcons GM Tom Dimitroff was a guest on "Late Hits" with Alex Marvez and James Miller on Sirius XM radio Thursday, and touched on the need to sign quarterback Matt Ryan to an extension.
Ryan is schedule to be an unrestricted free agent after this season. “Right now there’s nothing new on the contract,” Dimitroff said. “Understand that he will be here. We will get this done and we would prefer to have this done sooner than later.”
Now that the NFL Draft is out of the way, we should expect some talks between the team and Ryan's agents. “We have a very good working relationship with CAA (and Ryan’s agent Tom Condon) and I’m confident that this will, when the time is right, move expeditiously to get his done,” Dimitroff added.
