2. Trade for Jacoby Brissett
One player who could potentially be available to play quarterback via trade is Jacoby Brissett of the Indianapolis Colts. Brissett was originally a third-round draft pick of the New England Patriots in 2016 and he was one of the players who was considered a potential heir to Tom Brady’s throne.
That idea ended after just one season as Brissett was traded to the Colts ahead of the 2017 campaign where he was added to replace an injured Andrew Luck. Brissett played well considering how little time he had to adjust to his new team that season, throwing 3,098 yards with 13 touchdowns and seven picks. He added another 260 yards and four touchdowns on the ground but the team was still just 4-11 with him under center.
After backing up Luck in 2018, he returned to a starting role in 2019 when Luck retired. Brissett looked better as he completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 2,942 yards with 18 touchdowns and just six picks.
The problem is, he’s looked to be more of a game manager than a franchise quarterback which is why the Colts signed Philip Rivers in the offseason. They also drafted Jacob Eason out of Washington, which all but guarantees this is the last season Brissett will be with Indy.
For that reason, they could be willing to move him should a team be in need of a capable quarterback. He won’t threaten any jobs but he’s a signal-caller that won’t lose games for a team.
