Colts Reach Definitive Conclusion Regarding Jacoby Brissett

Colts Make Final Decision On Jacoby Brissett

The Indianapolis Colts made a final decision on Jacoby Brissett this past week.

On Friday, the team announced that it was signing Philip Rivers.

Rivers, obviously, will step in as the Colts starting quarterback in 2020.

So where does that leave last year’s starter, Brissett?

According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, it leaves him on the team – in a backup capacity.

On Saturday, the Colts announced that it would be releasing backup quarterback Bryan Hoyer. That leaves just Rivers and Brissett.

“Colts’ full intentions are to keep Jacoby Brissett, I’m told,” Fowler tweeted. “His contract calls for $7M guarantee tomorrow and $6M salary, so perhaps that affects some things, but the team considers him a special guy and wants him in the fold.”

Last year, Brissett recorded 2,942 yards and 18 scores with just six interceptions. Unfortunately, those decent stats did not translate into victories. The Colts ended up going 7-9.

Will Rivers be able to do any better? Time will tell.

Last season, Rivers recorded 4,615 yards and 23 touchdowns.
