Falcons QB Matt Ryan fine with playing more mobile game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan threw 93.1 percent of his passes inside the pocket from 2012 to 2014, per ESPN Statistics and Information. That ranks sixth in the NFL. He is not likely to reach that level this season in a Kyle Shanahan offense.

And he doesn't care.

The OTAs have proven that Ryan will be moving out of the pocket and throwing on the run more frequently in 2015. Some might question whether that best fits his skill set, but the quarterback is not complaining.

"I think it's a good fit," he told ESPN. "Obviously, I've been able to move around at different times in my career. It wasn't a featured part of what we were doing ... I feel like I'm capable of doing it. I've got no issues with that."

Ryan has exceeded 4,000 yards passing in each of the last four seasons and has been remarkably consistent statistically. He has thrown for between 26 and 32 touchdowns in all of those years.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan says he's never felt better
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said a change to his offseason workouts has helped him improve his overall health, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I feel better than I ever have," Ryan said. "That is one of the things that has allowed me to kind of get back into throwing a little bit more and spending some time on the field is kind of a change in everything, kind of day-to-day life and how you work out and all of those kind of things have helped me feel younger."

Ryan added that he doesn't anticipate having trouble learning new offensive coordinator Kyle Shannahan's offense.

"There is a lot stuff you might just have a thing here [or] there that needs to be tweaked," he said.

Falcons could bring in Matt Schaub to vie for backup QB role
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Falcons coach Dan Quinn is not ruling out bringing back former Atlanta quarterback Matt Schaub to compete for the backup role behind starter Matt Ryan, per ESPN.

"Schaub is certainly somebody that we could [add]," Quinn said. "As we get through it, we'll let you know if we go down that road."

The 34-year-old Schaub was released by the Raiders in mid-March. T.J. Yates and Sean Renfree are the other quarterbacks on the Falcons' roster.

New Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan excited to work with Matt Ryan
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

New Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is ready to build a playbook for quarterback Matt Ryan. He posted his second-highest passing yards mark in 2014, throwing for 4,694 yards with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

"Matt Ryan fits everybody's offense," Shanahan said. "He's done a little bit of everything: drop back, play action. He's not done a lot of movement, but he has the athletic ability to do it. I'm really looking forward to working with him."

He will also have a deep threat in Julio Jones, who posted a career best 1,593 receiving yards on 104 catches with six touchdowns.

"We are going to make (defenses) defend the deep ball," he said.
