Matt Ryan Enjoying Throwing on the Move


Last Tuesday’s organized team activities provided a glimpse of one of the offensive tweaks Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan might have to embrace under new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan.Ryan took a snap during 7-on-7 drills and proceeded to sprint out right. He then fired a dart on the run to receiver Eric Weems.Ryan won’t be asked to simulate the mobility Robert Griffin III routinely flashed under Shanahan in Washington. No franchise wants to see its $20 million a year quarterback open himself up for body shots on a regular basis. But Ryan could be asked to throw on the move more often in this system. There are three times as many designed out-of-the-pocket plays compared to the offense of former coordinator Dirk Koetter.
