Today is decision day for the Atlanta Falcons and Matt Ryan, will the quarterback stay in Atlanta or get a much-deserved trade? Let’s be clear here Ryan deserves a trade only if the veteran wants one after his team decided to chase Deshaun Watson despite having the former MVP under contract.
If Ryan does want a trade things can get a bit tricky for both sides in this deal. The Falcons only have until four today to trade Ryan considering the quarterback is due a roster bonus. However, Ryan has a no-trade clause in his contract meaning Atlanta cannot simply accept the best offer. Ryan is going to have to agree to any potential trade to waive his no-trade clause.
