The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to a two-year $30m (#24.8m) contract expansion with brand new starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett, based on multiple reports.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport added that Brissett will make $20m (#16.6m) guaranteed at registering.
Brissett was in the last year of his four-year rookie contract and has been set to make $2m (#1.6m) in 2019. He was called the Colts’ starting quarterback following the retirement of Andrew Luck on August 24.
Brissett is currently 5-12 as a rookie.
He has 3,500 yards passing in his career with 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
The move came just hours after the Colts signed former New England Patriots quarter-back Brian Hoyer back around Brissett.
