Marcus Mariota will star in the new Netflix documentary series entitled “Quarterback,” along with Patrick Mahomes and Kirk Cousins. The show promises to grant viewers behind-the-scenes access to some of the biggest moments from the 2022 season. The series was filmed when Mariota was playing for the Atlanta Falcons so don’t expect any Philadelphia Eagles’ footage.

However, it should provide a nice introduction into the mind of Mariota while clueing Eagles fans into his unique personality and leadership style. The 29-year-old recently inked a one-year deal (worth up to $8 million) to serve as Jalen Hurts’ backup in 2023.

Camera crews followed Mariota, Mahomes, and Cousins around “from inside the huddle with teammates to inside their homes with their families.” They were mic’d up for every single game. “Quarterback” will premiere in summer 2023. Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions helped produce the series.

“Playing quarterback in the NFL is a unique experience that has some pretty incredible ups and downs,” Manning said in a press release. “Thanks to this collaboration with our partners at NFL Films, 2PM Productions and Netflix, fans will be given a unique and intimate look at what life is like as a starting QB.”

Former Falcons’ QB Marcus Mariota reached agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year, $5 million deal worth up to $8 million, per source. Mariota is expected to be the Eagles’ No. 2 QB this season.

Mariota – the No. 2 overall pick in 2015, high on the Eagles’ radar – shores up a position of need, especially with the organized chaos Hurts brings to the table. His ability to scramble and stretch plays with his legs makes him an injury risk at times. Hurts is coming off a “severely sprained” AC joint in his right throwing shoulder. He has no limitations or lingering concerns, but solidifying QB2 has always been a top priority in Philly.
