No,   they cut him

I thought if he retired at any point during the 2023 season, assuming he never signs with another team, that we would get that money back? I could be way off on this as I’m not very knowledgeable on these types of situations.

I don't think it matters what he does.   The colts cut him,  so he is free to do whatever he wants

I think he would have to retire before the colts cut him to lose that money .  Matt stayed active until his money was due and waited for the colts to cut him .

This^.

 

Colts are not getting that money or cap space back. He can do what he wants after the cut and all of that is still locked in.

 

His post says it's not retirement but I can't see who would pick him up unless it's in a backup role for a young QB.

  • Superman changed the title to Matt Ryan - joining CBS

My understanding is that if he retires, the Colts could try to recoup a portion of the prorated bonus he was paid last season. It's not certain that they would. I wouldn't expect the Colts to get any cap relief related to Matt Ryan's contract.

 

Further, he says he's not retired. Not yet.

 

Mod note: Moving this to NFL General. I understand the cap question is connected to the Colts, but I think the real news is that Matt Ryan is going to CBS.

Yeah, even if we could I doubt Irsay goes after his money. He should blame Ballard for giving him even more guaranteed money for this season without needing to do it last year. 

 

It makes no effective difference. They restructured to gain some cap space in 2022, and in doing so, borrowed some cap space from 2023. If they didn't, his cap hit in 2022 would have been $6m higher, and we'd have $6m more cap space in 2023. (By the way, the restructure creates the possibility for recouping part of the bonus, even though it's unlikely to happen in this case.)

 

Coincidentally, we rolled forward $6.6m from 2022. This is totally coincidental, but it winds up being a wash.

Congratulations to Matt Ryan for joining a stellar cast of NFL analysts at CBS Sports.

 

Despite the fact that he has shared on social media that "this is not a retirement announcement" - I think it is.

 

I really don't see any NFL team being willing to reach out to him this season or beyond.  That ship has sailed.

As Superman notes….  The Colts received cap relief last year.   In exchange Ryan was getting that money this year.   And at the time there was talk of extending Ryan.   
 

The Colts needed cap relief last year.   It came with a price.   The Colts can handle this.

 Something has changed with some of your posts this year.

From reasonable excellence to wondering if your teenage son is posting with your tag.
It was explained last year yet you don't think it needed to be done?

Very Odd that you think you know better than Ballard and his Capologist.

Yeah, for some reason I thought we had given him extra guaranteed money when we just moved around already guaranteed money. That's my mistake. We all have our "taken over by a raging teenager" moments :P
