Since you have tagged this with “football,” I am assuming that you are asking about the age of Matt Ryan, the starting quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons.  The answer to this is that Matt Ryan is, as of this writing, 27 years old.  He was born on May 17, 1985, which means that he will turn 28 in about a month and will be 28 for the entire 2013 NFL season. 

Ryan was born in Exton, PA. which is not far from Philadelphia.  Ryan went to high school in Philadelphia before going to Boston College.  He was drafted by the Falcons in 2008 and has played his entire career to this point for them.
