    Fun fact: None of the opposing quarterbacks in Brissett’s five wins as a starter were on an NFL roster Saturday evening. Kizer, Hoyer, and Savage were released Saturday. Osweiler has been unemployed all offseason. T.J. Yates’ career ended following that 2017 loss to the Colts.

    Geeez.

    So, Luck takes a year off and recovers .... then ..... announces his return ........ but Indy already has 28M committed to QBs. Now, add another 24M (or so) and .... nope .... they cut Luck. This is going perfectly for Luck.

    Indy should get together with Houston, the combined IQ might reach 100.

    NFL teams have a minimum percentage they need to spend over five years and, with all that cap room, the Colts can’t be close to it right now. They NEED to burn money right now. Good for Mr Brissett.

    Patriots had 3 starting calibre QBs on the 2017 pre-season roster.

    Pats kept the best one and pay him the least :confused:

    So basically a team that will STILL have about $100MM in cap space after this deal, will have a QB that THEY believe in for about $15MM/yr or about 7.5% of next year's cap for the next 2 seasons.

    You know I hate the Colts as much as the next guy.....and their OWNER even more, but this deal sounds far from stupid to me. A lot of people have a LOT of good things to say about Jacoby's development over the last 3 seasons. Sounds like there are a lot of people here who still are picturing the guy who struggled through 2 games his rookie year here.

    Yeah, they COULD have kept him for another year for $2MM, but they did the right thing gave him a relatively modest raise and essentially 2 years of job security. If he turns out to be a solid NFL QB, then the Colts will STILL have a very cheap one for the next 2 years. I he's just OK they they have a decent bridge QB on the cheap, and if he is a COMPLETE bust, then they'll eat $10MM in dead money for one year. And with their cap space, they won't feel a thing.

    So while I would LOVE to be as smug as the rest of you, doesn't sound too dumb to me.

    Lol at all the paper GMs in the forum. I'm pretty certain we don't know every aspect discussed between the parties as part of the deal. Anyway, a good agreement is one in which both parties benefit, and I don't see a down side for either party here.

    Crazy, this team is absolutely going for Lawrence in 2021. They dont want to suck for Tua, they want Lawrence. Doubt their young defense gets on board with that.

    Let's say Jacoby goes out and -- *gasp* -- wins the Super Bowl this season. Even in that unlikely scenario, I can't see the Colts having to pay him anymore than $30-32M for 2020 in a new contract. Paying a guy $28M without seeing how he fares, from my perspective, is absurd.

    If anything, I'm not sure why the Colts didn't offer him a 2 year deal at 15-20M per season. That way, you can restructure and extend for more if he succeeds. And if he plays adequate to good, you could also deal him at that salary to a team looking for a short term solution. The other, saner option would be to do nothing.

    Paying him now makes little sense other than to give the appearance of being "OK" after the Luck fiasco. I could be wrong and probably am, but I bet this is an optics move for the franchise more than a football one.

    Why wouldn't they trade with teams looking to dump good players with large contracts? Paying Jacoby more money doesn't improve their team in any such way.

    These low contracts help to keep Brady hungry as a player. I mean, Jacoby and Jimmy must be better players because of those more lucrative contracts.

    Well it’s not “like a franchise tag next year” if the guaranteed money is this year. They would only be into him for 10 mill cap hit next year if he sucks not 28 mill.

    Isn't $30M for 2 years the equivalent of $15M per season?

    I'm still not sure why they aren't going into tank mode (despite some others saying they've still got lots of talent). From my perspective, swallow the poison pill of the Luck situation and do a full reset. Dump their best players for picks, take on large contracts from other teams for picks, extend young talent to modest contracts and then deal them for picks. Basically, you aren't going to win it all with Jacoby anytime soon so just keep churning the roster for picks.

    Seems like a good deal for both sides.

    Time to trade that young defense if they won't tank.

    As far as I understand the original post, it would seem Jacoby will get $28M total in 2020 if he plays. The original post states, "2-year extension REPLACES old contract and gives an additional year at $28M." If I misunderstood, then this isn't a bad deal if it means they can flip him later. But if they are going to pay him $28M in 2020, that is far too much at this stage.
