Call it a carousel.
Call it derailed.
Call it whatever you want to call it but this has been the wildest offseason in league history when it comes to signal-callers.
We’ve seen Aaron Rodgers get the bag and will be paid an average of $50 mil per season over the next 3 years.
We’ve witnessed the GOAT Tom Brady retire and then unretire a little over a month later.
We’ve watched Denver toss everything including the kitchen sink for Russell Wilson.
The Browns went all-in for Deshaun Watson, a guy that didn’t take a snap-in 2021.
Carson Wentz got traded to a former division rival in the Washington Commanders.
And today we saw the Atlanta Falcons all-time passing leader, Matt Ryan get traded to the COlts for a Third-round pick!
A third? Only a 3rd?!
There are reports that Falcons fans are livid after the team received such little compensation for someone that threw for just under 60,000 passing yards, was a former MVP, and had a Super Bowl appearance. Sure, he lost a 28-3 lead to Tom Brady and the Patriots in the big game. But consider this a steal for a Colts team that has all the pieces other than QB.
The Falcons wanted to move on quickly from Ryan and bit the bullet after losing 40 mil in dead cap by trading him, the most in NFL history.
The Colts will be poised to make a playoff run and have the Offensive line running game, and defense to show for it.
Ryan’s former number 1 WR Julio Jones also happens to be a Free Agent.
Could we see the duo reconnect in Indy?
Who is the favorite in the AFC?
