The Atlanta Falcons have announced that they are releasing QB Marcus Mariota after one season with the team. (atlantafalcons.com)
Mariota was benched late in the season in favor of rookie QB Desmond Ridder. It is unclear if his release is a sign of faith in Ridder or if it’s evidence they plan to bring in another QB, either a free agent veteran or another drafted rookie. For now, Ridder is the team’s QB1, the Falcons save $12 million and Mariota can look for a fourth team in his career.
