Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan might have to make room on his mantle. The NFL's 2008 offensive rookie of the year was nominated for an ESPY in the category of "best breakthrough athlete." Ryan was nominated alongside Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria and Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose. Fans can vote for Ryan at espys.tv. The ESPN award show will air July 19.
