You would think Atlanta Falcons stud quarterback Matt Ryan would feel some type of way about all these $100 million contracts getting passed out and none of them are for him. Ryan watched Joe Flacco and Tony Romo cash in at the onset of the NFL off-season.  Reports suggest that Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford will get big contracts as well. So the question now is, where does that leave Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. Ryan’s rookie contract expires after next season, and as he told USA Today, he’s “not too worried” about a new deal at this time. Ryan said Monday that the timetable “is not something I worry about.” “I understand the nature of the business and how everything operates,” he said at his Matt Ryan Celebrity Am Classic at TPC Sugarloaf. “At the same time, my focus has always been to just try to prepare myself to just play and let all the other stuff take care of itself. I’m not really too worried about it. My sole focus this offseason is to prepare myself, to work really hard and to try to give ourselves another chance like we had last year.” Ryan finally got the Falcons over the playoff hump and to the NFC Championship.  The Falcons were 11 yards from the Super Bowl, and Ryan has unfinished business in Atlanta. “I want to be here in Atlanta,” he said. “I love this place. I love the organization and I’m sure it will take care of itself.”
