Jacoby Brissett signs rookie deal with Patriots

The Patriots have their entire draft class under contract.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reported Thursday morning that third-round quarterback Jacoby Brissett has signed a four-year deal with the team. The Patriots signed their other eight draft picks last month.

Signing draft picks has become a much easier process since the 2011 CBA, although there’s more room for third-round picks to negotiate with their new teams and picks from that round have signed more slowly than others as a result. Brissett also opted to go without an agent while working out his first pro contract.

Brissett is behind Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo on the team’s depth chart at quarterback, although he could be the No. 2 to open the season if Brady’s four-game suspension remains in effect as his legal wrangling with the league unfolds in the coming months.

    Meaning the Patriots hold the rights to the top 3 QBs in the AFC East.
    —————————-
    Top 4, you forgot Edelman!

  2. This was all just a matter of time….
    Nice to see it done though
    Pats now have the best 3 QB’s in the AFC East….including the best QB ever in league history…

    Now it’s time to work on getting long term contract deals for:
    Collins
    Hightower
    Sheard
    Bennet

    Any other deals they can get done is just iceing on the cake!!!
    Go Pats

  3. Brady will start the season as the Second Circuit District Court will hear the appeal and realize what a sham Roger Goodell and his self perceived dictatorship really is. I don’t believe the intention of the CBA was to allow Roger Goodell to make up rules as he goes .

    Soon everyone will know “the Emperor Roger Goodell has no clothes”

  4. A high school QB can be successful in this system. Plethora of weapons, high percentage passes, great Oline, great coaching, it’s all there.

    Great Oline? You must have never watched a Pats game in 2015.

    Plus one could logically assume if it was some magical system that makes NE QB’s excel during the season, then all 32 teams would be running that same system.

    They do, but how hard is that really? The other 3 teams are all primarily defensive teams and rightfully so. They are by design intended to win based on their D’s. It”s the logical thought process when they are forced to deal with NE at the top of the division. It’s not realistic to expect to take the division by winning shootouts with one of the GOAT’s so they have to be built from the D out. That said, Geno, Tanneheill and Taylor are hardly fear inducing and NE might have an advantage at the position in that division even without Brady

    You’re kidding right? I don’t think anyone would argue that Brady tops that list, but to say that a player who has never taken an NFL snap and a player with 31 attempts, 188 yards, and 1 TD as a pro is better than Tyrod Taylor or Ryan Tannehill is obsured.

    The only thing more surprising than your statement is the amount of people who actually thumbed up your comment.

    Unless other teams can clone Belichick and Mr. Kraft, it’s not easy to copy the system. The 2015 Oline may not have been up to the usual Patriots standard but it was better than many other teams. It was good enough to beat good pass rushing teams like the Chiefs in the playoffs.

  9. I’m not convinced that Brady will be playing in weeks 1-4 and that it was important to get this kid signed. Anytime you deal with the courts, you really don’t know what result you’ll get or even if the courts will agree to hear this appeal. Obviously, if they agree to hear the case, the odds of Brady playing go way up. What I don’t understand here is why to kid didn’t sign sooner when all of the salaries are slotted.

  10. I might be a Pat’s homer, but this guy is one of the best QB’s to ever play a college game.

    (I just couldn’t resist 😉

    still shaking my head on the pats using a 3rd rounder on this guy – he wasn’t good in college

    That’s ok, because they didn’t sign him to be good in college. He has the ‘intangibles’ and physical make up to be good, just needs training and a bit of luck once Tom hangs em up to prove he’s worth a 3rd rounder.

    The system calls for a Judy arm QB to read the defense at the line and throw it 5 yards down field.

    “The system calls for a Judy arm QB to read the defense at the line and throw it 5 yards down field.”

    And soon, every other team in the NFL will be copying that successful strategy. The point of playing football is putting points on the board and winning games. Period.
