15-Year Veteran Quarterback Open To Returning In 2023

He's ready to run it back.

Unfortunately, he won't be able to do it with the same team.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Ryan said he's open to returning in 2023.

Ryan is due $12 million in guaranteed money when the Colts cut him, because they will definitely do so.

That will likely happen before March 17th, when another $17.2 million in guaranteed money will kick in if he's still under contract. It makes sense for Ryan to keep alive any chances for a return until then in order to avoid losing out on that money.

However, according to Stephen Holder of ESPN, Ryan said that he still loves the game and believes "there's a lot of good football left." 

It's hard to agree with the thirty-seven-year-old on there being a "lot of good football left," after seeing what he did this past season. Over 12 games this season, Ryan completed 309-of-461 yards for 3,057 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also fumbled the ball a league-leading 15 times, leading to him being benched twice.

Ryan's best days are long gone, and it'd be a surprise to see him get a starting gig anywhere.
