Patriots trade QB Jacoby Brissett for Colts WR Phillip Dorsett

Written by 

The New England Patriots make yet another pre-season move and have traded promising young Quarterback Jacoby Brissett for Indianapolis Colts Wide Receiver, Phillip Dorsett

It seemed as if Jacoby Brissett was going to be a New England Patriot for at least another year. After weeks of speculation and statements that Brissett was having a bad pre-season, many were beginning to think Brissett was leaving via roster cut, but instead he will be heading to the Colts in a trade for Wide Receiver Phillip Dorsett.

Dorsett has not lived up to expectations yet, but with playing behind TY Hilton and not having Andrew Luck readily available, he might be a victim of the enivronment in Indianapolis. With 33 receptions, Dorsett was still able to rack up over 500 yards averaging 16 yards per reception. His college career is what put him on the map. In the speedsters senior year at Miami, he only caught 36 balls, but racked up 871 yards and 10 Touchdowns. That's 24 yards per catch, he was blwoing by defenders like a freaking cheetah.

Overall, the Colts need help at Quarterback with Andrew Luck's uncertain help and they can certainly spare to lose a WR. The only concern is that the Patriots are left with only to Qb's, but that is nothing new for them, hell, last year they went into week 4 with Julian Edelman as the backup Quarterback. WIth the uncertainty of Jimmy Garoppolo's future and if Tom Brady will actually play another 5 years or not, Brissett was clearly not the future and the Patriots, although stacked at WR, could always use another weapon to help put this team even further ahead of the pack.
