Falcons Trade Matt Ryan to the 49ers
Falcons receive: 1st Round Pick (’21), 4th Round Pick (’21)
49ers receive: Matt Ryan
The QB pool has shrunk in recent weeks with the trades of Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz. San Francisco remain in the category of teams who are within striking distance of making serious noise but aren’t set with who they have under center. The team could quickly move on from Jimmy Garoppolo – just a year removed from leading the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth – in favor of a more established star. Matt Ryan has had an up-and-down few years as the Falcons have failed to make the postseason for three seasons in a row. His best years were when now-49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was calling plays for the Atlanta Falcons. A Shanahan-Ryan reunion could vault San Francisco to the top of a tough division.
