No. 3 – Jacoby Brissett
Brissett was acquired by the Colts after it was determined that Andrew Luck wasn’t going to be a factor with the team in 2017. Luck is expected to be a factor with the team in 2018 and that now makes Brissett someone that is expendable.
In 19 games in the NFL, Brissett has passed for just under 3,500 yards. He has threw for 13 touchdowns while also throwing seven interceptions. One of the other attractive things about Brissett are his legs. In those 19 games he has rushed for nearly 300 yards and five rushing touchdowns. With Brissett also comes the added experience that McCarron and Lynch don’t have since Brissett has run an offense in the NFL for an entire season.
Brissett played all 16 games in 2017 with the Colts and while the Colts weren’t the greatest, he was still the starting QB on that team. With experience comes maturity and Brissett certainly matured as the season wore on in 2017. Brissett also comes from New England, having been with the Patriots before the Colts, but I don’t put much stock in that personally (though some do).
