Falcons general manager Terry Fontenot said the team would "bring in" quarterbacks this offseason.
It's not exactly a stunning admission, but it confirms that the Falcons are rightfully thinking about life after Matt Ryan, who will be 36 in May. Ryan, who is signed through the 2023 season, will count for $40.9 million against the salary cap in 2021, making him an unlikely cut candidate even if the Falcons draft his eventual replacement with the fourth pick in this spring's NFL Draft. "You always bring in quarterbacks," Fontenot said. "You need to bring in quarterbacks, whether it's in the draft, whether it's in free agency, or signing guys off the street. It's so important, bring in quarterbacks a lot, build strengths." Atlanta could sign a serviceable backup for Ryan if they don't take a QB with their No. 4 pick. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andy Dalton, Joe Flacco, and Tyrod Taylor are among this offseason's free agent signal callers. Feb 16 10:09 am (EST)
