Matt Ryan Gets $34.75 Million Guaranteed

This might be part of the reason the owners opted out of the current deal.  It is ridiculous to give any player, especially a quarterback, who has never played a game in the NFL that kind of money.  Matt Ryan's total deal is 6 years, $72 million. 

The NFL really needs to go to a structure similar to what the NBA has for it's rookies.  If you are picked in this spot you get X amount for X number of years.  That way you can spend the big money on the proven guys when they are headed to free agency.
