Rick and John debate ways the Falcons can free up cap space for 2019. 

Rick and John reference an article from the Falcons Wire that have some options of how to move money around. The biggest Falcons contract is currently with quarterback Matt Ryan. Both Rick and John agree that restructuring Matt Ryan's contract would do wonders for the team. Ryan would still get the same amount of money, but it would be moved around.

They agree that he deserves every penny earned, but Rick says Ryan should do the right thing and help the team. Rick continues that Ryan preaches championships, and he is not living paycheck to paycheck, so he should allow the Falcons to do whatever they need to do. John references his Cap Hit at $22 million, which is nothing compared to most elite quarterbacks. John is worried about the Super Bowl window closing and they need to make money moves as soon as possible.
