The Atlanta Falcons didn’t have Matt Ryan rolling out much over the past few seasons, but with Kyle Shanahan now running the offensive show, we may be seeing a bit more of it in 2015. Best of all, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN, Ryan is just fine with that.
"I think it’s a good fit," Ryan told ESPN of Shanahan’s scheme. "Obviously, I’ve been able to move around at different times in my career. It wasn’t a featured part of what we were doing with Dirk here. If you look early in my career with Mike Mularkey, we did a lot of outside-the-pocket movement and a lot of throwing on the run. When we had that running and rolling with [running back] Mike Turner, it was more effective."
"I feel like I’m capable of doing it. I’ve got no issues with that. Like I said, I think it will be a good fit." Ryan added.
