Matt Ryan, Agrees to restructure contract

Ryan has reached an agreement to restructure his contract, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Falcons have restructured multiple contracts, converting 2020 base salaries into bonuses to clear out cap space. It's been an interesting offseason in Atlanta, with Todd Gurley and Hayden Hurst brought in to replace Devonta Freeman and Austin Hooper. The team still appears weak on defense, but Ryan shouldn't lack for weapons in the passing game.

Brian Hill, Receives tender from Falcons

The Falcons have placed an original-round tender on Hill, who is a restricted free agent, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Hill was a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, so the Falcons will receive that as compensation if the running back signs an offer sheet and the team doesn't match it. Assuming he's retained, he's a candidate to fill the void (along with Ito Smith) after Devonta Freeman was released Monday. In 12 games (two starts) last season, Hill turned 78 carries into 323 yards (4.1 YPC) and two touchdowns while hauling in 10 of 14 passes for 69 yards and another score.

Levine Toilolo, Joining Big Blue

Toilolo is signing with the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Toilolo figures to take on the blocking role previously occupied by Rhett Ellison, who announced his retirement from football last week. Toilolo will turn 29 in July, coming off a 2019 campaign with the 49ers in which he caught two passes on 191 offensive snaps. He has 97 receptions in 108 career regular-season games.

Austin Hooper, Four-year, $42 million deal reported

Hooper is poised to sign a four-year, $42 million deal with the Browns, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Analysis: Breer notes that the tight end is line to earn $23 million over the first two years of the deal, all of which is slated to be guaranteed. With Hooper set to join the mix, David Njoku's volume figures to take a hit. Hooper is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he set career highs in the catch (75), yards (787) and TD (six) categories, while playing 13 games. The money Cleveland plans to give him is a clear indication that he'll be a focal part of the team's passing attack in 2020.
