2. Jacoby Brissett
A player, while not successfully, who has starting experience in the NFL is set to become a free agent when the new league year begins could be in mind for Caserio. Former New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett could make his way to Houston on a budget deal should the Texans have to replace Watson.
He started 15 games in 2017 after the injury to Andrew Luck in Indianapolis, then 15 more games in 2019 after Luck’s surprise retirement. The Colts brought in Phillip Rivers this season to attempt to push them over the top, relegating Brissett to the bench. During his 30 games starting with the Colts, Brissett threw for over 6,000 yards, 31 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He has completed a career total of under 60 percent of his passes.
The 6-foot-4 and 238 pound quarterback has not had great success as a starting quarterback in the NFL, the Texans could opt for a bridge option on a bargain deal to help them through a rebuilding (or tanking) time. Just as Josh McCown has done, and just as Ryan Fitzpatrick has served as, Brissett’s future appears to be that of a backup and spot starting quarterback.
