Getting the start

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-24

Mariota will start Friday against the Colts, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Mariota is only expected to play one series before giving way to Tanner McKee, and eventually Ian Brook. The Oregon product has struggled at times learning his new team's offense during training camp, but he's fully expected to remain the team's No. 2 option behind Jalen Hurts this season.

Unremarkable in first half

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-17

Mariota started the Eagles' 18-18 preseason tie with the Browns on Thursday night and completed nine of 17 passes for 86 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed once for five yards.

Mariota needs game reps in his new team's offense, so his extended stint in Thursday's contest makes sense. The veteran signal-caller was sharper in Philadelphia's preseason opener versus the Ravens while completing seven of 11 passes, but Mariota remains a lock for the role of Jalen Hurts' top backup come the regular season.

Still learning offense

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-03

Mariota has gotten off to a slow start during training camp, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Mariota has thrown four interceptions in the first week of training camp. However, it appears that's being chalked up to him being on his third team in three seasons. According to teammate Boston Scott, "He's still learning the playbook, but he's a really smart guy. It's gonna take time, but you can see the tools for sure." Mariota will continue to work to improve and learn the playbook, as he adjusts to his new role and team, as Jalen Hurts' backup in Philadelphia.

Active at OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-06-09

Mariota has been an active participant at the Eagles' OTAs this spring, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice reports.

Mariota signed a one-year contract with the Eagles this offseason after finishing last season with Atlanta on injured reserve with a knee injury. The quarterback appears to be healthy ahead of the 2023 campaign and is expected to operate as the top backup behind starting quarterback Jalen Hurts in Philadelphia. Mariota, a former second overall pick in 2015, started 13 games with the Falcons last year and if Hurts were to go down, the Eagles' offense wouldn't have to change much with the 29-year-old's skillset under center.

Links up with Eagles

Mariota (knee) agreed to a one-year contract with the Eagles on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The deal will pay Mariota $5 million and could be worth up to $8 million with incentives. With the Eagles, Mariota, who is bouncing back from a knee procedure, will slot in as the backup quarterback behind Pro Bowler Jalen Hurts. In 13 games (all starts) with Atlanta last season, Mariota recorded 2,219 passing yards, to go along with 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions, while also logging 438 rushing yards (including four TDs via the ground).

Released by Atlanta

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-02-28

The Falcons released Mariota (knee) on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Mariota's release has been expected, and frees up roughly $12 million in cap space for Atlanta. The 29-year-old ended the 2022 season on IR after having been benched for Desmond Ridder, finishing his only campaign as a Falcon with a 15:9 TD:INT through 13 appearances. Once fully recovered from his knee procedure, Mariota will likely draw interest from teams looking for a veteran backup quarterback.
