Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan is entering the last year of a $72 million contract, and could be the next quarterback to join the $100 million dollar club with his next contract. Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco's new contract is a comparable for Ryan's next deal, according to Andrew Brandt of ESPN. Its yet another comparable and data point for Matt Ryan, said Andrew Brandt, ESPNs NFL business analyst and former chief negotiator for the Green Bay Packers. The gold standard was Drew Brees, at least on the average at $20 million (per season). Now, you have $20.1 million. Its certainly a place they could look at as the freshest data point.

But it's also the fun part. You get to compete and try to be a winner.'
