Matt Ryan Officially Retires From NFL

Quarterback Matt Ryan officially announced his retirement from professional football on Monday as a member of the Atlanta Falcons, the team that drafted him third overall in 2008 out of Boston College. Ryan spent 14 of his 15 NFL seasons in Atlanta, winning Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2008 and an MVP award in 2016. In his lone trip to the Super Bowl in the same season he won his MVP award, the Falcons blew a 28-3 lead at halftime to lose to the New England Patriots. He made just 12 starts for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022 and threw for 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The 38-year-old four-time Pro Bowler ends his career as Atlanta's all-time leader in passing yards (59,735) and passing touchdowns (367). Ryan ranks seventh all-time in passing yards (62,792) and ninth in TD passes (381) as a future Hall of Famer.

Matt Ryan Unlikely To Play Again

Free-agent quarterback Matt Ryan, who announced he's joining the broadcast booth for the 2023 season, said it's unlikely that he'll play in the NFL again. "All the stars would have to [align]. I've just learned in the 15 years I've played, to not shut any doors," Ryan said. The former MVP made it clear he wasn't retiring earlier this week, but the chances of him joining another NFL team at this point are slim to none. He earned four Pro Bowl selections in his 14 years with the Atlanta Falcons and led his team to one Super Bowl appearance. As a 38-year-old for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022, Ryan had a career-low 14 touchdowns in 12 games and was eventually benched. If he were to officially retire, the Colts could come after some of the $12 million guaranteed they owe him after cutting him.

Matt Ryan Joins Broadcast Booth, Says He's Not Retired

Free-agent quarterback Matt Ryan announced on Twitter that he's joining CBS Sports as an analyst this year, but that he's not retiring from the game. Ryan will be in the broadcast booth in 2023, but he's not closing the book on his NFL career after falling flat for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022. The 37-year-old former MVP completed 67 percent of his passes last year for 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 12 games before he was benched. It wasn't entirely his fault, though, as the Colts' offensive line didn't give him much of a chance to be successful in the pocket. Even if Ryan does sign with another NFL team down the road, it won't be in anything more than a backup role.

Colts Release Matt Ryan

The Indianapolis Colts released quarterback Matt Ryan on Tuesday, according to a source. The Colts moved on from Ryan well before releasing him on Tuesday, as he was benched midway through his first and only season with the team. It wasn't all the 37-year-old's fault, but he didn't exactly play very well, either. In 12 starts for the team, he completed 67 percent of his passes for 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The Colts' offensive line did him no favors, and Ryan had virtually zero chance to succeed with hardly many clean pockets to throw from. The move to cut him will save the Colts over $17 million on the 2023 salary cap. The four-time Pro Bowler will look for work elsewhere if he wants to continue his playing career, but Ryan looked pretty washed up in 2022.

Colts Unsure On The Future Of Matt Ryan

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan might not be on the team for much longer. The expectation is that the team will cut Ryan ahead of his $35.2 million salary becoming guaranteed on March 17th. The Colts would save $17.2 million by cutting Ryan, so that is likely what they will do as they head towards a rebuild. Despite that, general manager Chris Ballard says the team is uncertain on the future of Ryan. It's hard to believe that the Colts would keep Ryan after his performance last season. Ryan threw 13 interceptions and had a season-high 15 fumbles last season. This team is heading into a rebuild and have the 4th overall pick in the upcoming draft. The expectation is that they will cut Ryan and save that money for free agency. The 37-year-old should be able to find a job elsewhere as a possible bridge quarterback.

Matt Ryan Open To Playing Next Season

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan mentioned that he is open to returning for the 2023 campaign. The 37-year-old is due $12 million next season, but the Colts can save that money by cutting him before March 17th. Ryan has said there is still good football left in him, but the stats show a different story. The veteran signal-caller threw 13 interceptions and had a season-high 15 fumbles last season. It's tough to imagine him finding a starting spot somewhere after that horrendous season. Although, it's possible he takes a backup job just to continue playing in the NFL.

Matt Ryan Inactive For Week 17

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan is a healthy scratch for the Week 17 matchup against the New York Giants. The veteran quarterback won't even be active as Sam Ehlinger will serve as the backup to Nick Foles. For some reason, head coach Jeff Saturday continues to ride with Foles after he threw three interceptions last week. The Colts aren't playing for anything, but pride this weekend. The Giants defense is looking like a strong streaming option with Foles under center on Sunday.

Matt Ryan Unlikely To Play Again This Year

The Athletic's Zak Keefer writes that it's unlikely Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan will play again this year after being benched for Nick Foles in Week 16 for the Monday night matchup versus the Los Angeles Chargers. Ryan has gone from the team's unquestioned starter, to being benched, then back to being the starter, and now he's third on the QB depth chart behind Foles and Sam Ehlinger. If the Colts choose to release him after the year, he'll count $18 million against the salary cap in 2023. If Ryan stays, he'll count $35 million against the cap. The 37-year-old and the Colts blew a 33-point lead in Week 15 to the Minnesota Vikings, eliminating them from playoff contention. It hasn't been all Ryan's fault in 2022, but he struggled mightily with a 67 percent completion rate, 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and a league-high 13 interceptions in 12 starts.

Colts Benching Matt Ryan For Nick Foles

The Indianapolis Colts are benching quarterback Matt Ryan in favor of Nick Foles for the Week 16 game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night, according to a source. After blowing a historic 33-point lead in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings last Saturday, interim head coach Jeff Saturday has seen enough of the veteran Ryan. The 37-year-old didn't do anything to impress in Week 15, throwing for only 182 yards and one touchdown in the overtime loss. Foles played two offensive snaps in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars but didn't attempt a pass. The 33-year-old will get his first start of 2022 as the Colts look to bounce back from a devastating loss. He'll be nothing more than a desperation low-end QB2 for fantasy managers, and the Chargers defensive unit will become a bit more attractive as a streaming option this week.

Matt Ryan Has A Rough Game In Week 15

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan amassed 182 yards off 19-for-33 passing during the Week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He also threw a touchdown, finding Deon Jackson in the first quarter. However, Ryan wouldn't throw another touchdown for the remainder of the afternoon, with the Colts defense accounting for two scores in this one. Since the 37-year-old reclaimed his starting job, he hasn't done much, tossing for one touchdown or less in four of his previous five games. Ryan should remain under center for the rest of the 2022-23 campaign. That said, that won't make him a reliable fantasy quarterback by any means against the Chargers in Week 16.
