05:20 PM ET 05.22 | In the coming days, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is set to join the National Football League???s $100 million club. The Falcons want to lock up Ryan for the future. He's guided the team to five straight winning seasons and two NFC South titles. General manager Thomas Dimitroff has said they want to do Ryan's deal in a creative manner that will not severely hamper the team???s long-term salary-cap situation. The topic of Ryan???s contract came up on NFL Radio SiriusXM as commentators Tim Ryan (no relation to Matt) and Pat Kirwan discussed the pending contract extension. They used New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees??? five-year, $100-million contract and Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco???s six-year, $120-million deal as comparable deals.
