Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension, the team announced on Thursday. Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said the deal was being finalized as the Penn Charter product led the offense through practice on the first day of training camp. A source said Ryan's extension is worth $103.75 million, with $59 million guaranteed. Ryan will average $20.75 million during the first three years of the extension. The 28-year-old Ryan, the NFL's No. 3 overall draft pick of 2008, is entering the sixth and final season of his original rookie contract and will earn a $10 million salary.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens have acquired center A.Q. Shipley from the Indianapolis Colts for a conditional 2014 draft pick. The tradel, announced Thursday by the Ravens, will be finalized after Shipley passes a physical. Shipley played in 14 games last season with the Colts, getting five starts. He participated on special teams for Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game in Baltimore last season. The 6-foot-1, 309-pound Shipley was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 draft by Pittsburgh.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Trainer Doug O'Neill had a pretty darned good day on two courses. First he birdied the eighth hole during a Wednesday afternoon golf outing at Valhalla, then he aced the Kentucky Derby draw when Goldencents landed in the No. 8 post and was made the 5-1 third choice for Saturday's race. "It should be perfect for him," said O'Neill, who saddled last year's winner, I'll Have Another. "Perfect" was not the way last year's Triple Crown series ended for O'Neill and his colt.

No longer needed, Eagles fullback Stanley Havili was shipped to the Indianapolis Colts for journeyman defensive end Clifton Geathers on Thursday. With new coach Chip Kelly expected to scrap the traditional fullback from the offense, the Eagles sent Havili to a team that has its share of ex-Birds. Colts general manager Ryan Grigson was director of player personnel in 2011, when the Eagles selected Havili out of Southern Cal with their seventh-round draft pick. Rather than release Havili, the Eagles managed to get another long player for Bill Davis' 3-4 defense.

This is a post by Les Bowen on Eagletarian, the Daily News Eagles blog. THE MAIN purpose of Thursday's Eagles trade of Stanley Havili to the Indianapolis Colts for defensive end Clifton Geathers was to get something for Havili, while giving the fullback a decent shot at continuing his career. Havili, 25, was a good soldier who worked his way up from the practice squad in 2011 to play in 15 games in 2012, but new coach Chip Kelly's offense is not expected to include a traditional fullback.

The NFL's free-agent market opens Tuesday, along with the promise of the Eagles' grabbing some big names, but the team took care of two of its own when it signed long snapper Jon Dorenbos and safety Colt Anderson to contracts on Monday. Dorenbos was slated to become an unrestricted free agent at 4 p.m. like hundreds of other veterans who hope to cash in on the first day of the NFL year. But the Eagles locked up one of their longest-tenured players with a four-year deal. Anderson, a restricted free agent, would have become unrestricted had the Eagles not tendered a contract by Tuesday.

Running back Bernard Pierce, a rookie out of Temple, upstaged his Pro Bowl teammate Ray Rice by rushing for 103 yards on 13 carries.

BALTIMORE - There's no telling how effective Ray Lewis will be Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after missing 12 weeks with a torn right triceps. Fortunately, for the Ravens, he's already provided an emotional lift. With his announcement that he will step into retirement after Baltimore completes its 2013 playoff run, Lewis gave the slumping Ravens a boost heading into their wild-card game. "Just having him back on the field is an inspiration," Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees said.

THE INDIANAPOLIS Colts want offensive coordinator Bruce Arians to stick around a little longer. They also understand he wants to become an NFL head coach. On Thursday, the Colts said Arians had been granted permission to speak with the Chicago Bears about their head coaching vacancy, which became available when Lovie Smith was fired on Monday. It is unclear when the interview will take place because Indy (11-5) will face AFC North champion Baltimore (10-6) in a wild-card round game Sunday.
