Mariota most recently backed up Derek Carr and played in special packages for the Las Vegas Raiders for two seasons after spending his first five NFL campaigns with the Tennessee Titans.

Atlanta head coach Arthur Smith overlapped with Mariota in Tennessee. Smith was the Titans’ tight ends coach from 2015-18 and offensive coordinator in 2019, the year Ryan Tannehill unseated Mariota for their starting job.

Mariota, 28, won the 2014 Heisman Trophy at Oregon and went #2 overall in the 2015 draft. He amassed a 29-32 record as the Titans’ starter and threw for 13,207 yards, 76 touchdowns and 44 interceptions in 63 games (61 starts). He also ran for 1,399 yards and 11 touchdowns in that span.

The Hawaiian got into 11 games in Las Vegas across 2020 and 2021, scoring two rushing touchdowns and throwing for another. He attempted just two passes in 2021.

Ryan, 36, was Atlanta’s starter for the past 14 seasons. The Colts gave up a third-round pick in the 2022 draft to acquire Ryan as their new answer at quarterback.
