The Indianapolis Colts have reportedly traded for veteran Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.
The need for a new quarterback started for the Colts at the end of the 2021 regular season and was cemented when they traded former starter Carson Wentz in early March to Washington.
Recently, the Falcons were in the running to trade for quarterback Deshaun Watson, which set in motion Ryan’s search for a new team. Although the Falcons didn’t come away with Watson, Ryan felt it was best to still move on.

Fallout from the Deshaun Watson situation, with Ryan starting over in Indy. Ryan gets a contract adjustment with more guaranteed money.
