Patriots Sign Third-Round QB Jacoby Brissett, Lock Up 2016 Draft Class

The New England Patriots have agreed to terms with third-round QB Jacoby Brissett, according to Ben Volin.

The Patriots have officially signed all of their 2016 NFL draft picks following this move.

Brissett, 23, was taken with the No. 91 overall pick by the Patriots. It was interesting to see the Patriots use a third-round pick on a quarterback, especially considering that it wasn’t Connor Cook.

However, it appears as though the Patriots view Brissett as an eventual replacement to Jimmy Garoppolo, who could be made available at some point.

According to OverTheCap.com, Brissett receives a four-year contract worth $3,020,604 to go along with a signing bonus of $680,604.

During his two-year college career at North Carolina St., Brissett recorded 458 completions on 765 attempts, 5,268 passing yards, 43 TDs, 11 INTs, 8 INT, and had 263 rushing attempts for 899 yards and nine TDs.
