The former No. 2 overall draft pick is being penciled in as The Falcons' Week 1 starter, though he'll have to fend off rookie Desmond Ridder. Mariota is a nimble runner, but his passing ability leaves his employers wanting more. Mariota turns 29 in October, so it's probably too late to dream of vast untapped upside.

Marcus Mariota agrees to two-year deal with Falcons

Free agent quarterback Marcus Mariota has agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced Monday.

Fantasy Impact

This move was rumored to be in the works immediately after the Falcons traded Matt Ryan to the Colts, and the team worked quickly to fill their quarterback vacancy. Mariota will reunite with head coach Arthur Smith, who was a tight ends coach and later the offensive coordinator in Tennessee. Mariota is a former No. 2 overall pick who has been relegated to backup duty the last few years. But he's still just 28 years old and will presumably have the opportunity to earn the starting gig and revive his career in Atlanta.
