Arthur Blank would like to sign Matt Ryan to an extension before the season

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank told Andrew Siciliano of the NFL Network that he would rather sign quarterback Matt Ryan to extension before this coming season.

“It’s important to us to get it done when it makes sense to get it done, and I can’t before the season,” said Blank. “Personally that would probably be my view, but really you have to let the principle….and I’m one of them, but certainly Matt and our team leadership make that decision.  And the agent as well.”

The Falcons would be smart to hammer out an extension now.  The longer they wait, the more Ryan’s price will only go up.
