Here's What Colin Cowherd Said About Matt Ryan's Trade to the Colts

Colin Cowherd: “I think this is great for the Colts. He’s the perfect remedy for Carson Wentz, who was wildly talented but was ‘up-down, up-down, up-down’…you know exactly what you get with Matt Ryan. Atlanta is going to pay a lot of the salary so he’s only going to be a $24 million cap hit, that’s it for Indy. That’s incredibly manageable. Matt Ryan is steady, great at the line of scrimmage, very nice distributor…he is a declining, older quarterback, but they just got to the playoffs two years ago with Philip Rivers, and Matt is better than Philip Rivers. This is terrific for the Colts. A grown-up. When you say ‘Matt Ryan, great o-line, Jonathan Taylor, good defense’, that feels like a playoff team. It would absolutely be a playoff team in the NFC, who knows if they can make it in the AFC. This morning I feel like they can win the division with that group. That’s great for the Colts and you only gave up a third-round pick. Secondly, it’s a win for Matt Ryan. He finally gets an elite o-line and a star running back. He leaves a wonky division and goes to a wonky division. This is not a loss for Matt Ryan. He gets his money and he gets better protection. Atlanta was a mess for him. Calvin Ridley was suspended for a year and they just lost Russell Gage to Tampa. He loses a tight end, but they were a mess at wide receiver. He just escaped that thing and went to a playoff roster.” (Full Video Above)
