Although it would not exactly be as exciting as some other options, the Broncos could probably do a lot worse than Jacoby Brissett as a backup quarterback.
Multiple times in his career, Brissett has been a starting quarterback and he’s done a solid job at it.
He started for the Colts in 2017 and 2019, completing just under 60 percent of his passes over those two seasons with 31 touchdowns and just 13 interceptions.
Although he doesn’t throw a lot of interceptions, Brissett took a whopping 79 sacks during his starting stints with the Colts, and he also took two sacks on his 10 dropbacks in 2020.
Brissett can offer some value as a runner but he’s mostly a pocket passer and he tends to stick around the pocket a little too long at times.
Still, his most recent season as the Colts’ starter, he was solid all-around with a quarterback rating just under 89.0.
If the Broncos are looking for a younger guy — Brissett is still only 28 — with starting experience and some actual productivity at the position, he could be a viable target.
