UNDATED (AP) — Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension. A person familiar with the situation says Ryan’s extension is for $103.75 million, with $59 million guaranteed. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms of the deal had not been announced.

The 28-year old Ryan is entering the sixth and final season of his original rookie contract and will earn a $10 million salary.
