New & Rumors: Matt Ryan, Dwayne Bowe, Alphonso Smith

Matt Ryan

La Canfora tweets that the Atlanta Falcons are expected to “explore” a possible contract extension for QB Matt Ryan.

Currently, Ryan is under contract with the team through the 2013 season so they have some time to get a deal done but addressing his contract could help them get him under contract for a more reasonable price than what he’s currently making.

Dwayne Bowe

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel mentioned that they would like to retain WR Dwayne Bowe but admitted that he’s unable to say that they’ll “definitely” be able to get something done, per La Canfora.

The franchise tag figures to be a very plausible option. Kansas City has plenty of cap room so I’m not sure how they could sell it their fans that they were unable to keep him.

Alphonso Smith

La Canfora passes along word that the Detroit Lions are willing to shop CB Alphonso Smith.

It’s hard to say that the Lions are going to be able to recoup much value for Smith considering that he broke his foot last season and was largely ineffective upon returning to the team.
