Matt Ryan, Optimistic on head coach transition

Ryan said Wednesday that he's spoken to new head coach Arthur Smith "a handful of times," and he remains excited about the opportunity to work with the new coaching staff, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Ryan is optimistic about Atlanta's transition to an offensive-minded head coach, tabbing Smith as extremely smart and "a really good fit" for what the Falcons currently need atop the organizational hierarchy. The veteran signal-caller is also taking a realistic stance about where he stands in his professional career, noting that he will be a professional and the best teammate possible if the Falcons decide to select a quarterback in April's upcoming draft. With Ryan and Atlanta coming off a third consecutive losing season, there remains a distinct possibility the organization brings in Ryan's successor with the No. 4 overall pick.

Marvin Hall, Becomes UFA in offseason

Hall enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Analysis: Hall, who was inactive for both of Cleveland's playoff game, played sparingly after he was claimed off waivers from the Lions in early December. He will be free to join any team in 2021. The Browns have their top three wideouts under contract for 2021, but they are expected to bring in multiple bodies to compete for depth spots.

Marvin Hall, Healthy scratch again

Hall (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Hall will miss a third straight game as a healthy scratch. He's not expected to play this postseason unless another wide receiver suffers an injury.

Levine Toilolo, Not much action in 2020

Toilolo secured five of six targets for 46 yards in 16 games with the Giants in 2020.

Analysis: Toilolo played 275 offensive snaps in 2020, but he was rarely utilized in the receiving game. The 29-year-old remains under contract with the Giants in 2021, so he stands to return in a similar depth role which won't provide much (if any) fantasy value.
