FLOWERY BRANCH Takkarist McKinley Men Jersey , Ga. (AP)s to seal the five-year contract extension that made him the NFL’s highest-paid player.Ryan brought his infant twin boys, Marshall and John, to Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank’s office on Friday, when the deal was signed.”Tough negotiators,” a smiling Ryan said Monday.The twins, born on April 8 following a complicated pregnancy for Ryan’s wife, Sarah, and the new contract are reasons for Ryan to have an optimistic new focus on his future.The extension announced on Thursday is worth at least $100 million , a league record, and could be worth as much as $150 million.Ryan has been the figurehead of the Falcons during their most successful 10-year run in franchise history. He says he sees the contract as an incentive for the future instead of a reward for leading the team to six playoff seasons, including the Super Bowl run in 2016 Color Rush Takkarist McKinley Jersey , when he was named NFL MVP.”We’ve had some really good teams,” Ryan said. ”But I think the best is in front of us and that’s what has me so excited about my future here and our future as an organization, that we have a lot of really good pieces in place.”Ryan said when he was drafted in 2008 it was his hope ”to be the quarterback that a franchise leans on for a long time, 15, 20 years. That’s kind of still where my head is at.”Before the extension, Ryan, who turns 33 on May 17, could have been a free agent after the 2018 season.The threat of Ryan entering free agency could have been the biggest story of training camp. That was a distraction Ryan and the Falcons were eager to avoid.Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff described the extension as ”our primary focus this offseason.”Now Ryan can focus on football instead of finances as he prepares for the 2018 season.”I’m happy with the timing of it,” Ryan said. ”I think the organization is very happy with the timing of it. Certainly when we get back to training camp it’s 100 percent about football. … I always felt confident it was going to get done in a smooth way and in a timely manner and I feel like it did.”There was little question the Falcons would keep Ryan, who has helped to reshape the perception of the franchise.Before the Ryan era, the Falcons had only eight playoff seasons in 42 years Authentic Takkarist McKinley Jersey , and none in back-to-back years. With Ryan, the Falcons have made the playoffs in six of 10 years, including the 2016 Super Bowl run.The contract extension brings continued stability for an offense that also returns wide receivers Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu and running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Dimitroff gave the offense a boost by making wide receiver Calvin Ridley its first-round draft pick last month.Like Jones, Ridley is from Alabama.”I guess I’m an honorary Alabama quarterback now,” Ryan said. ”…I’m very excited about Calvin coming here.”Ryan’s new deal topped the total compensation of the $84 million, three-year guaranteed deal that quarterback Kirk Cousins received from the Minnesota Vikings.Someday, Ryan will be able to show his twins a photo taken by the Falcons of the day they were in the room when he signed the extension.”It was a special day for our family,” he said. ”I was excited that they were there. That will always be a great memory for us but also a really cool picture for me to be able to show them when they get older. They won’t remember it, but I’ll tell them I was OK at one point.”—Polls reveal that Saints fans are the biggest homers in the NFC South by a wide margin As part of our ongoing FanPulse efforts here at SB Nation, fans of each NFC South team were asked who they thought the best team in the division was. I thought the results were worth sharing because of what they reveal about each fanbase’s psyche at the moment. (Sign up here to take our weekly Falcons survey)The Falcoholic Painfully, most of the fans polled here agree that the Saints are the best team in the division Takkarist McKinley Jersey Boys , something that’s impossible to quibble with based on record and healthy talent. A brave 28% of fans polled think Atlanta’s the best team despite their ugly record, injury issues and terrible defense thus far, while a further 15% went for an up-and-down Panthers squad. As is proper, only 1% thought the Bucs were anything other than a paper pirate.How about the rest of our divisional blogs, though? Cat Scratch ReaderOh, this is a little bit more homer-y. Nearly 70% of Panthers fans polled think they’re the best team in the division, compared to 32% for the Saints and 0% for the Falcons and Bucs. I don’t think the Panthers are actually better than the Saints, but hey, you teal fellas and ladies do you.Bucs NationThere’s a mix of pragmatists and believers here. More Bucs fans than Falcons fans were able to force themselves to admit that New Orleans is currently the best team in the division, but a full 20% of them insanely thought the Bucs were the best team in the division despite a catastrophically terrible defense and their predictable fall-off over the last two games. Tampa Bay doesn’t lack for talent, but they lack for results Cheap Takkarist McKinley Jersey , and personally I’ll need to see them right the ship in a major way in the coming ways if I’m not going to dismiss them out of hand like I do every year. But again, every fanbase should have its homers, as is natural.Speaking of which...Canal Street Chronicles That’s the good stuff. Every single Saints fan polled thought New Orleans was the best team in the NFC South. This result would, I suspect, hold up if the Saints were currently last in the division, because Saints fans are true believers in a way that Falcons fans just are not. You have to admire that, in a way, despite our general disdain for the Saints. Anyways, they also are the best team in the division right now.If you’ll excuse me, I need to go throw up.
