After signing a five-year contract extension that makes him one of the league's highest-paid players, Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said the new deal doesn't put added pressure on him.

"The expectations we set for our football team and my personal expectations are higher than any expectation anybody's going to put on you,'' Ryan said.

And those are sky high for a franchise that came up 10 yards short of advancing to the Super Bowl last season. "I've said many times, we're not going to really rest until we have [Super Bowl] rings,'' owner Arthur Blank said. Ryan's deal could be worth up to $103.75 million and averages $20.75 million per year, according to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. Ryan will make $63 million in the first three years of the deal.
