Colts HC Frank Reich says he’s been “really impressed” with what he’s seen from QB Jacoby Brissett this summer.
“I’m really impressed with Jacoby,” Reich said, via Colts.com. “First from an intangible standpoint, (he has) great character, great leadership, mentally is on top of it, really a good passer, and really a good decision maker. … You already see things – how quickly he processes information, gets to the right receiver. Obviously he had a lot of great experience last year. Jacoby played a lot of good football last year so I’m really glad he is here.”
Regarding the possibility of keeping three quarterbacks on the team’s active roster, Reich said it was “probably too early to make that decision.”
“I think that’s hard to do,” Reich said. “I think that’s a good question, but Chris (Ballard) and I will sit down at that point and think about that.”
- Albert Breer says he would put his money on Sam Darnold being the rookie quarterback to start for their team Week 1.
- According to Breer, Darnold has been a quick study this offseason and is showing he can absorb and apply the information he’s given by the coaching staff.
- In fact, Breer believes there’s a “better than 50-50 chance he wins the job outright in camp.”
The Titans have been operating without LT Taylor Lewan and RT Jack Conklin this offseason, which has opened the door for some of the team’s other offensive linemen to get more work with the first-team offense.
“I’m careful to say ‘benefit,’” Titans OL coach Keith Carter said, via the Tennessean. “But it is. It’s a great opportunity for the whole room, like, ‘Hey man, life goes on.’ And so somebody else’s jersey number is called and they’ve got to go in and compete at a high level and that’s the expectation. If you’re in, you’ve got to go.
“And so I think from a development standpoint, it’s cool, because a lot of people are getting a lot of different reps at different positions, that obviously if they were both up, wouldn’t have been playing. But clearly we’d love to have both of them because they’re still working and improving and stuff, too.”
