According to Adam Schefter, Matt Schaub will be back with the Falcons on a two-year, $9 million contract.
This happened right after the report that Brian Hoyer will sign with the 49ers, eliminating the only possible spot Schaub might be able to start. He'll return to backup Matt Ryan with the Falcons and gets a pretty good payday.
Matt Schaub wants to start somewhere in 2017.
Schaub told ESPN's Vaughn McClure that he wants "opportunity" to start somewhere in the NFL. Obviously it will not be in Atlanta, so Schaub likely won't be back with the Falcons. There has been speculation that new 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might bring Schaub in as a bridge gap option to start in front of a young quarterback. We'll keep an eye on Schaub this offseason.
