Even after signing Marcus Mariota, Falcons will add to the quarterback room

The Falcons have a massive decision to make next month about whether they will select a quarterback in the draft. During Terry Fontenot’s press conference on Wednesday morning, the former Saints executive told members of the media that even though they’re excited about Marcus Mariota, the team will continue to add to the quarterback room.

We assume he means taking a quarterback in the draft, but it wouldn’t be shocking if the Falcons signed a veteran on a team-friendly deal to be the backup. Falcons fans can expect an acquisition made because of the sheer numbers of quarterbacks on the team — Mariota and Feleipe Franks. Sure, it could be a rookie first-rounder who is supposed to be the future face of the franchise, but it could also be a less inspiring name, like Josh Rosen. During the entire press conference, Fontenot and Smith gave quintessentially PR answers, so this could mean anything.
