DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Matt Ryan says he is not focusing on contract talks as he appears destined to become the NFL's next $100 million quarterback.
The six-year, $66 million contract Ryan signed with Atlanta as a rookie in 1998 expires after the 2013 season. General manager Thomas Dimitroff says the Falcons hope to finalize a new deal with Ryan before the season.
Drew Brees, Tony Romo and Joe Flacco have recently signed five- or six-year deals worth at least $100 million. As the most recent Super Bowl winner, Flacco became the game's highest-paid player with his $120.6 million deal.
Asked Monday at his Matt Ryan Celebrity Am Classic at TPC Sugarloaf if he hopes to have a new deal before the season, Ryan said ``I'm not too worried about it.''
