Matt Ryan agrees to richest contract in NFL history, will increase Aaron Rodgers' value

Posted:

The NFL has its first $30 million quarterback. 

Thursday afternoon Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan signed a five-year extension including $100 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Earlier this off season Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins had previously signed the richest contract in NFL history, a three-year $84 million (full guaranteed) deal.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who is expected to sign an extension before the regular season begins in September, should make more than Ryan and could potentially make close to $40 million per year.
