Falcons' Matt Ryan: Extension talks planned
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ryan and the Falcons are expected to discuss a contract extension this offseason, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Ryan has two years remaining on his current contract, but after an MVP-caliber 2016 season, his representation is anticipated to pursue a deal to secure his long-term future in Atlanta. According to the report, Ryan's potential extension with the Falcons could make him the NFL's highest-paid player. With those negotiations not slated until this offseason, Ryan will be able to focus on the task at hand, which is attempting to secure the Falcons' first Super Bowl victory in franchise history on Feb. 5 versus the Patriots.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Makes up for lackluster rushing with receiving touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards, and caught four of five targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship win over the Packers.

Atlanta's running game was bottled up for most of this one, but Freeman still managed to find the end zone through the air from four yards out. While he got 14 carries to Tevin Coleman's 11, it was Coleman who scored the game's only rushing touchdown by a running back from three yards out. Their timeshare has worked well enough to get to the Super Bowl, so expect both young running backs to be heavily involved in Houston.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Sends team to Super Bowl with two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jones (toe) hauled in nine of 12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Packers in the NFC championship game.

Jones took practice off on Wednesday and Thursday to rest his injured toe, but looked 100 percent healthy en route to his second-best yardage total and first multi-touchdown effort of the season. He did a terrific job of staying inbounds on his three-yard touchdown with three seconds left in the first half, then took his team's second offensive play of the second half to the house from 73 yards out to make it 31-0. With 15 catches for 247 yards and three scores in two games this postseason, quarterback Matt Ryan's top aerial weapon is building momentum heading into the Super Bowl.

Falcons' Matt Ryan: Dispatches Packers with five total touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ryan completed 27 of 38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns while rushing three times for 23 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship game victory over the Packers.

Ryan led the Falcons to 17 points on the first three possessions, capping the opening drive with a two-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu and the third with a 14-yard scramble for his first rushing score since Week 1 of the 2012 season. He later added two more touchdown passes to Julio Jones and another one to Devonta Freeman during a stretch of four consecutive scoring drives. The 31-year-old veteran came into this postseason with a 1-4 playoff record and 9:7 touchdown to interception ratio, but has been magnificent over the last two games, tallying eight total touchdowns and remaining turnover-free while guiding the franchise to its second Super Bowl appearance.

Falcons' Taylor Gabriel: No injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gabriel (foot) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's NFC championship game versus the Packers after fully practicing Friday.

Gabriel was limited both Wednesday and Thursday to rest his ailing foot, but his full practice Friday cleared any uncertainty regarding his status. The speedster will be available as usual to face a mistake-prone Green Bay secondary, and he should take confidence from catching all three of his targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's previous meeting with the Packers this season.
