FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. The Atlanta Falcons finished up one minor signing and one fairly significant signing on Wednesday, the eve of training camp, while one major contract extension remains in limbo.

Falcons training camp kicks off on Thursday July 25th and all still seems to be quiet on the contract front with Matt Ryan. Will the Falcons get a deal done before the season or will they go the Joe Flacco route and wait until after the season? It's a big question.
So just how good is Matt Ryan? It's a question that comes up often and Matty Ice took one step towards...
