And the Falcons incur a $40.5M dead cap hit in the process.

Hmm. So what are the falcons going to do? Baker for a 6th?

Right now they have Josh Rosen and Feleipe Franks in their QB room.

Also, Andy Dalton is still looking for work.

Dang.

Sounds like they are either going full rebuild, or are going to look at Baker/Jimmy G

Sometimes Matt Barkley does look good.

I think they're going to be going for Mariota.

Update: yep

If Marcus can stay healthy he's a lot better than Ryan. Ryan makes Foles look mobile. I'm not a Wentz fan but IMO the Colts should expect to have a worse season with Matty Ice Age than they did last year despite their finish.

I would disagree here.

A guy that can’t stay healthy, hasn’t sniffed 4000 yards ever and went above 20 tds exactly once will never be better than Matt Ryan until Ryan retires.

This is what happens when a front office has both Phil Emery and Ryan Pace.
