Summary

(1:40)Although Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank expressed admiration for Matt Ryan, he did not fully commit to the one-time MVP as the quarterback of the future as the franchise searches for a new head coach and general manager.Blank parted ways with coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff on Sunday following an 0-5 start. He'll count $40,912,500 against the 2021 cap for now, although the Falcons restructured his contract twice over the past year to create cap space and probably would have to do the same again to enhance the roster next season.The Falcons have not given any indication of plans to part ways with Ryan, although they did interview top quarterback prospects Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa before this year's NFL draft as "due diligence,'' according to Dimitroff.McKay said Monday the new general manager would have control of personnel decisions under the new structure, with the new general manager and head coach reporting to McKay. Blank said the traditional approach would be to hire the GM first then the head coach, but added it could be out of sequence this go-around.McKay was asked if there are plans to trade high-priced veteran players due to the team's projected tight 2021 salary-cap situation."No,'' McKay said.
