Marcus Mariota was named starting quarterback on Wednesday as the Atlanta Falcons wrapped up day one of training camp.

Mariota isn’t the only new name you will see this season. In addition to QB Desmond Ritter who was drafted, former 49ers defensive lineman Darrion Daniels will take the open roster spot left by Eddie Goldman.
