Matt Ryan to Walk-On at Clemson

Clemson's ties to the NFL grew a little stronger on Saturday, as OL Matthew Ryan accepted a walk-on offer from the Tigers.

Clemson added another Ryan boy to the roster and another NFL father's son when Matthew Ryan of New Orleans decided to accept a walk-on offer and join the Tigers next season. Matthew is the son of New Orleans Saints Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan. Matthew's cousin is Clemson backup WR and special teams holder Seth Ryan, son of Buffalo Bills Head Coach Rex Ryan.
