The Atlanta Falcons signed Todd Gurley earlier this offseason and he's already turning heads within the organization. Despite the unusual circumstances this offseason, Matt Ryan spoke about how Gurley has handled himself.

In a conversation with Vaughn McClure of ESPN, Ryan shared how impressive Gurley has been in his short time with the Falcons:
