    I read it the same but replaces 2019 at $2M with 2019/20 at $30M, with $20M guaranteed.

    Here's what it says on Spotrac:
    So I think that means:
    Signing bonus of $20 Million
    2019 Base of $2 Million
    2020 Base of just under $8 Million
    For $30 Million Total. Right?
    So good, bad, or indifferent in 2019, the Colts are scheduled to pay him $8 Million for 2020. In the case of Brissett playing OK to Great, this is better than Franchising him as the big payout will be in the past season (2019) and not 2020. If he's terrible then they should be in position to draft a Franchise QB, and he'll be a $8 Million bridge/backup.

    And whatever incentive Brissett might have had to PROVE he's not a JAG QB and worthy of a big payday just went out the window. It's almost like the Colts did this to spite Luck.

    Where are you getting this sort of claim? Brissett is getting paid as a bottom-level starter who's not on his rookie deal, nothing more. All that's happened is that the Colts have sped up the clock one year so that their QB isn't a lame duck.

    And an extra $10M this year...for a total of $20M that they’re on the hook for today that they weren’t yesterday, thus an additional $20M guaranteed for a one year extension.

    Simply because he hasn't proven himself worthy of that kind of investment and the well-fed usually aren't hungry.

    The Colts like him. They've liked him from the beginning. They've made that abundantly clear.

    And he's getting $15m a year, which is bottom of the barrel money for a starting NFL QB who's not on a rookie deal. Even if he completely ****s the bed, it's not a problem, because the Colts have more than enough cap space to handle having to add another QB.

    You do realize he became the starting QB. You would have him play this year at $2M? Anyway, why does this matter to the Patriots or anyone? I'm thrilled for Jacoby personally, seems like a great guy.

    Taken from Slam, post #42 above (bolded part is by me):

    Here's what it says on Spotrac:

    Jacoby Brissett signed a 2 year, $30,000,000 contract with the Indianapolis Colts, including $20,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $15,000,000. In 2019, Brissett will earn a base salary of $2,000,000 and a workout bonus of $25,000, while carrying a cap hit of $2,025,000.


    Average annual salary (15M) is a useless statistic that carries no action. I read this as a $30M cap hit in year two. $20M is guaranteed, it doesn't say there is a bonus. The way this is structured is bizarre or the information from Spotrac is incomplete.

    Are you sure about $15 million being "bottom barrel"? I don't recall it being that high but maybe so with a cap increase.

    That’s still not the same as tagging him. The tag is like 28 mill. They won’t be in the hook for 28 mill next year if he sucks.
    Just saying as usual Florio bastardizes the facts to try to sound insightful.

    They were probably below the minimum spend of 89% so just gave Jacoby some money.

    They still have more than enough room to do that. They paid a QB that they think they like a decent but not massive amount of money for a short term in a league in which it’s hard to find serviceable players at that position. It’s a good deal for both sides.

    Glad you finally got it.

    Opening up the check book for a Bum is the road to ruin.

    1) Brissett is a good QB, in a good situation can be better than most guys.
    2) The reason is they need to spend cash to achieve the 89%

    The Colts just made it harder to bench Brisset and put in the better QB Hoyer.

    Crazy

    The absurd thing is that Brissett might be even less accurate than Hoyer. And we know how people here think about Hoyer's accuracy.

    Yes the reps he got with the Colts because Luck was barely available made him better than when he could not hit a haybarn in his second offseason here. But if someone sees a prop that Hoyer will replace JB at some point before week 10 on a betting site around let me know.

    I thought last year was his opportunity to prove himself, and he came up wanting.

    If he can't deal with a little job insecurity, he ain't the kind of leader the Dolts Brass say he is.

    Worried about Hoyer breathing down his neck? LOL!

    To me this sends a bad team building message, "We pay for mediocrity".

    I know this is the "I wanna get paid!" era, but I like the fact that NE is not out in front of that trend.

    As @Tunescribe says, pay for performance and keep 'em hungry!
