QB Matt Ryan following in QB Michael Vicks footsteps
New Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan signed an endorsement deal with AirTran Airways. The rookie from Boston College College will replace Michael Vick, who you may recall is in prison serving a 23-month sentence for that dog thing. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, "AirTran has contracts with about 15 NFL players, Hutcheson said, to appear in advertising in local markets. The lineup includes quarterbacks Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts, Donovan McNabb of the Philadelphia Eagles and two other Falcons players, linebacker Keith Brooking and receiver Brian Finneran."
