Falcons Twitter reacts to Marcus Mariota being released

The Marcus Mariota experiment is officially over in Atlanta after the team released the quarterback on Tuesday morning. Mariota started 13 games this season before being benched for rookie Desmond Ridder during the bye week.

Mariota’s release frees up $12 million in cap space for the team just in time for free agency. While fans weren’t exactly surprised by the move, many were thrilled about the prospect of adding more cap space for the offseason.

Let’s see how Falcons Twitter reacted to the news.
