Jim Irsay won’t rule out Jacoby Brissett as Colts QB in 2020
One key question this offseason will be who the Indianapolis Colts decide to go with as their quarterback for the 2020 season.
Owner Jim Irsay may have some ideas, but he isn’t shedding any light on that right now. He did say Sunday, however, that Jacoby Brissett is still a candidate to be brought back as starter in 2020.
Irsay on QB: “All options are on the table.”
And he’s been adamant those options include potentially sticking with Brissett. #Colts

It’s safe to assume that the Colts are going to be pretty ruthless about this and will go for a more established veteran if they get the chance to do so. Brissett had a middling season as Colts starter in 2019, going 7-8 in his starts while throwing for 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. Those aren’t bad numbers, but the team may want someone more explosive after Brissett fell short of the 3,000 yard marker.
There is at least some speculation that one veteran quarterback and the Colts may be a suitable pairing. We haven’t really heard anything concrete about that at this stage, though.
