Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons

I’m not sure how likely this is, given that the dead cap from trading Ryan next offseason will be well over $20 million, but it’s possible.

On the other hand, I think the hire of Arthur Smith indicates the Falcons are going all-in on Matt Ryan for the next few years, but if something major happens in 2021, Ryan could be available next offseason, and the Broncos should show interest.

Ryan, at the very least, will receive Hall of Fame talk.  The former MVP has been consistent and efficient in his time in the league and has not really shown any signs of slowing down.

As QBs get older, one of many things that could happen is their arm can lose some velocity.  If that’s the only thing the Denver Broncos would theoretically have to worry about, I’d bet on Matty Ice.

Ryan won’t wow you with throws as Aaron Rodgers would, but he’s someone who’s seen it all, from winning an MVP to losing a heartbreaker in the Super Bowl.
