Our small business is looking at switching from our T1 service to FiOS for business. Since it's next door to impossible to get a human being from Verizon to call back, I was wondering if I can use my same Cisco router to route internet traffic? In other words, rather than the T1 connection, we connect the Cisco router to the FiOS modem or whatever it is and would we be good to go?

I do not have FIOS, but I can point you to

I recently replaced a T1 with business FIOS, I have to say their support couldn't answer basic internet questions.
The bottom line: You don't need to use your router or Verizon's.
An Ethernet connection is coming out the ONT (Optical Network Terminal), you plug it right into your network (switch, firewall, router). For me I plugged it into a NetScreen Firewall.
If your Cisco Router accepts Ethernet as an input you can use it otherwise you can't.
