Matt Ryan net worth
Ryan, who was the third overall pick in the 2008 draft, threw 20 touchdowns for 3,968 yards in the 2021 season as the Falcons finished with a 7-10 record and third in the NFC South.
He previously held the record for the highest paid player in the league, until Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers eclipsed him.
Matt Ryan’s net worth in 2022 is believed to be around the $70 million, per Celebrity Net Worth.
That is far less than the estimated $200 million of the likes of Brady and Rodgers, and even Ben Roethlisberger, but clear of the next generation of QBs such as Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow.
What about his career earnings?
Over his 14 year stint in Atlanta, Ryan’s career earnings were around the $267 million (£208.4 million GBP) mark, as per Sportrac.
Just over $100 million of this was in base salary, with the rest coming in signing and incentive bonuses.
Upon moving north to Indiana, Ryan is expected to have base salaries of around $17 million and $21 million respectively in 2022 and 2023, with signing bonuses of $7.5 million a year, as per Over the Cap.
