Falcons: Matt Schaub is retiring

dge191229076 atl at tb

Among the many interesting things Arthur Blank and Rich McKay said at their press conference on Monday was that veteran backup quarterback Matt Schaub will be hanging up his cleats.


Schaub just finished his fourth season behind Matt Ryan. Thankfully, we haven’t had to see much of him. He was only asked to start in one game for the Falcons, which was last season, but he performed marvelously, throwing for 460 yards in a loss to the Seahawks.

If you remember, Schaub was actually drafted in the third round by Atlanta back in 2004 and served as Michael Vick’s backup before they traded him to the Texans in 2007 for two second-round picks. With Houston, he became a Pro-Bowl quarterback under Gary Kubiak, racking up 46 wins in seven seasons as their starter.

Congrats, Matt, on one helluva career!
