Colts Turned Down 2nd-Rd Pick From Seahawks For QB Jacoby Brissett?



Jason La Canfora reports that the Seahawks did not offer the Colts a second-round pick for QB Jacoby Brissett, despite the earlier report.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, citing a league source, reports that the Seahawks recently offered the Colts a second-round pick for QB Jacoby Brissett, but the Colts passed on the deal.

Volin mentions that Seahawks QBs coach Brian Schottenheimer worked with Brissett while they were in Indianapolis last year, so there’s some familiarity there.

Colts owner Jim Irsay recently said that they have no intention of trading Brissett, even for a first-round pick.

“All of a sudden, we have the┬ábest backup quarterback in football,” Irsay said, via the Indianapolis Star. “I don’t think we’d accept a (first-round pick in a trade) for him, we think he’s that good.

Brissett is obviously the Colts’ insurance policy to Andrew Luck and they’re reportedly turned down other deals in the past for him, so it’s clear he’ll be in Indianapolis for the 2018 season.

Brissett, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3.411 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $735,076 and $890,114 over the next two years.

The Patriots traded Brisset to the Colts coming out of the preseason last year in return for WR Phillip Dorsett.

In 2017, Brissett had appeared in all 16 games and thrown for 3,098 yards while completing 58.8 percent of his passes to go along with 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 240 yards and four touchdowns.
