Chicago Bears offseason quarterback trade targets: Matt Ryan

You cannot get much more consistent than Matt Ryan in today’s league. Say what you want about the guy or the situations he’s been in, but he’s been a very good quarterback in the NFL for over a decade.

The problem in Atlanta now, though, is that they very well could be close to rebuilding. Many have speculated whether or not the Falcons would listen to offers for Ryan and allow him to find another home.

The Bears would have to clear quite a bit of cap space, as his deal will hit the cap with roughly $40 million over the next couple of years. But, adding Ryan to the mix would immediately make the Bears a contender.

Ryan has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 20-plus touchdowns in 10 straight seasons now. The Bears would kill to have a quarterback throw for that number just once or twice in a span of a few years. What he’s been able to do over the last 13 seasons is nothing short of consistent.
