This, of course, means that they will send Scott Tolzien to the bench after just one game as the team’s starter.
Earlier in the week, Colts HC Chuck Pagano told reporters they planned on discussing the possibility of starting Brissett over Tolzien in Week 2, even though Brissett has been a member of the team for a few weeks.
However, it was clear that Brissett gives them the best shot of winning games, even if they have to cut somethings out of their offensive attack.
Brissett, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $3.411 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $580,038 and $735,076 over the next two years.
The Patriots traded Brisset to the Colts coming out of the preseason in return for WR Phillip Dorsett.
This season, Brissett has thrown for 51 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions while completing 2 of 3 pass attempts.
