Tom Brady’s Roast, Matt Ryan’s Retirement & Zach Wilson’s Trade

The NFL Draft is two days away, but we had some quarterback news throughout Monday.  We’ll shift into draft mode starting tomorrow, but the GOAT roast, Matty Ice’s retirement, and a Zach Wilson trade are in order.


The Roast of Tom Brady

Get ready for laughs. Netflix announced its upcoming GOAT Roast — ‘Greatest Roast of All Time’ — comedy special on Sunday, May 5 (8:00 pm ET). Tom Brady will absorb the hits from Kevin Hart, Jeff Ross, and an all-star lineup of comedian roasters. Can’t wait.


Matt Ryan Officially Retires

Former Falcons and Colts quarterback Matt Ryan officially retired on Monday after signing a one-day contract with Atlanta to retire as a Falcon. The 15-year QB went to four Pro Bowls and earned the MVP Award in 2016. He also took Atlanta to a Super Bowl runner-up that season (before blowing a 28-3 lead against the quarterback mentioned in the story above).


Jets Trade Zach Wilson to Broncos

On the same day the Broncos launched some new uniforms, Denver acquired QB Zach Wilson from the Jets for a sixth-round pick. Wilson was the former No. 2 overall pick in 2021. He was forced back into the spotlight after Aaron Rodgers’ injury last season, and he never really shined. A fresh start in Denver could help. Or not.
