One of Chris Ballard’s best moves as a general manager was acquiring Jacoby Brissett in a trade right before the regular season started.
Brissett was a major upgrade over Scott Tolzien as he threw for over 3,000 yards with 13 touchdowns last season after being thrust into the starting lineup without much knowledge of the playbook. He’s only being paid about $850K a year, and the Colts have him under contract through 2019.
Colts fans hope that Brissett won’t be forced into a starting role again, but having a quality backup as young as Brissett on an affordable contract makes him a valuable member of this team.
