Indianapolis Colts: 3 Reasons Why Jacoby Brissett Should be Traded This Season

Colts QB Jacoby Brissett

The Indianapolis Colts are looking at one of the best quarterback situations in the NFL. With Pro Bowler Andrew Luck finally back to 100 percent health and making plays, Colts’ backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett is stuck watching.

Luck hasn’t hidden his excitement to be back on the football field and he’s returning to old form quickly, extending plays and throwing into tight windows.

Brissett is clearly deserving of being a starter in the NFL, but Indianapolis may not be the place for him. The Colts are completely confident in Luck and his ability to stay healthy. Brissett, starting in 15 games with the Colts last season, completed over 58 percent of his passes for 3,098 yards. He threw 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions while rushing for 260 yards and four touchdowns.

Some would like to see more touchdowns out of Brissett, but given the supporting cast and situation he was in it’s understandable why he only threw 13 touchdowns. He’s played well through three preseason games in 2018 and has looked much improved both in camp and preseason.

Jacoby Brissett is clearly an NFL starter, but the Colts already have a superstar at quarterback. Owner Jim Irsay and GM Chris Ballard have expressed they’re not trying to get rid of Brissett, but here are three reasons why they should be.
