3 Players that could follow Matt Ryan to the Colts
By Nick Halden
The Matt Ryan era in Atlanta is officially over as the Falcons dealt Ryan to the Colts in exchange for a third-round pick. The quarterback was sent to the Colts in exchange for a third-rounder which is a bit shocking when you look around the league and consider all the blockbuster trades that have happened around lesser quarterbacks.
Atlanta’s inability to get even a second-round pick while taking on the biggest dead-cap hit in league history makes this trade a slam dunk for the Colts. The Colts get a franchise quarterback and a leader while the Falcons get a third-rounder and a terrible cap situation.
For the first time in a decade and a half Atlanta will now be searching for a quarterback and an answer at the most important position on the field.
