If you’ve ever wondered how Matt Ryan keeps his throwing arm in shape during the offseason cheap soccer jerseys, it appears that we now have the answer to that question: He throws long bombs to his wife, who might have a future as an NFL receiver.
The Ryans were watching the draft over the weekend when they decided to hold an impromptu throwing session in their backyard. If you’ve ever played backyard football, then you know that there’s only one play that ever gets called: “Go long,” which is exactly what Sarah Ryan did for this play.
As you can see in the video at the top of the page, not only did Sarah run a perfect skinny post route, but she also capped off her touchdown catch with a wild celebration that probably would’ve resulted in Roger Goodell fining her $700,000 and throwing her out of the league.
Sarah might not ever play in the NFL, but she is pretty athletic. Not only was she a three-year starter on the Boston College women’s basketball team, but she was also a two-time state player of the year as a high-schooler in Maine.
She’s also worth a follow on Instagram, which is where she originally shared the video of her touchdown and pool celebration over the weekend.
If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll get an inside look at how an NFL MVP lives his life. For instance, on the left side of the photo below, you can see how Matt reacted to Sergio Garcia’s blown putt on the 18th hole of the Masters back in April. And then, on the right, you can see Sarah showing off Matt’s perfect grilling stance.
Anyway, the good news for the Falcons here is that it looks like Matt has finally put the Super Bowl loss behind him. (By the way, I didn’t want to say anything about the Super Bowl, but I had to. As a member of the media, anytime I write about the Falcons, I’m basically obligated to mention the fact that they blew a 28-3 lead to the Patriots in the Super Bowl.)
