Falcons GM Terry Fontenot: Atlanta in prime position to 'stack good quarterbacks'
New general manager Terry Fontenot has a major decision to make on how he'll build his roster. Does he choose an eventual heir to Matt Ryan at quarterback, assuming that Atlanta won't be in a top-5 position to draft a franchise signal-caller in the coming years?
