As far as the guaranteed money, says NFL reporter, Ian Rapoport, it’s $59 million guaranteed and over the course of the first three years of his contract extension, it’s $63 million which is top among all quarterbacks. When you consider the fact that Matt Ryan is due $10 million this year, he is locked up with the Falcons for the next six years.

Ryan, who came so close to reaching the Super Bowl last year, struck a deal which now exceeds Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco’s $20.1 million average which Flacco received last March with the Baltimore Ravens with his six-year, $120.6 million deal, at that time making it the biggest deal in NFL history.
