Matt Ryan is 36 and has just two years remaining on his current contract. According to Colts owner Jim Irsay, they hope to have Ryan as their quarterback for three, maybe four years.
After several seasons of one year starters from Jacoby Brissett to Philip Rivers then Carson Wentz, Irsay wants Ryan in a Colts uniform past his current deal.
"Matt is different than Philip, this is definitely different than that," Irsay said. "It's not drafting Andrew Luck, but it's different than Philip. We knew Philip was going to be a one-year sort of thing and we view this as very possibly a three-year thing. Who knows. It's hard to put a number on it."
"We hope Matt can be here for four years, maybe," Irsay said. "We certainly have our radar out for a young guy that can be the long-term future."
I'm sure they thought Wentz was going to be the guy for more than one season too. I'm rooting for a complete disaster and for the Colts to be in the quarterback market again next offseason. I love a good plan being spoiled.
