On Thursday, Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff told reporters that their “main focus” this offseason will be to sign QB Matt Ryan to a contract extension, per Kelsey Conway. Ryan is one year removed from an MVP season in which he took the Falcons to the Super Bowl and considering that he’s entering the final year of his contract, it makes plenty of sense for Atlanta to be aggressive this offseason in regards to hammering out a long-term deal. The time of the deal will be something to watch, as the Packers are also expected to sign Aaron Rodgers to a massive extension that could leave him as the team’s highest-paid player, so Ryan may want to wait and see the specifics of Rodgers deal before agreeing to anything.
