The Atlanta Falcons are reportedly trading veteran quarterback Matt Ryan to the Indianapolis Colts in the latest bombshell trade in the NFL.

The Falcons had been in the mix to trade for Deshaun Watson, but the Cleveland Browns made a huge deal on Friday to acquire the controversial quarterback. Had Atlanta added Watson, it would have made Ryan expendable, though it’s clear now that the team is moving on from the veteran anyway.

Over the course of his outstanding career in a Falcons uniform, Ryan threw for 59,735 yards and 367 touchdowns, leading the organization to one NFC title.

Ryan, who turns 37 in May, will look to provide the Colts with some solid production at the quarterback position.
