Colts acquire QB Brissett from Patriots for WR Dorsett

New England Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett passes against the New York Giants during the first half of an NFL preseason football game Thursday Aug. 31 2017 in Foxborough Mass

"You look at the draft board, you see a team you want to trade with, if it works for them and it works for you, you make the deal".

Phillip Dorsett didn't do much in the first two seasons of his National Football League career, but the New England Patriots are still the clear winners of a trade with the Indianapolis Colts that sent the third-year receiver to New England in exchange for backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett. It's really hard to envision a scenario in which Tom Brady and free-agent-to-be Jimmy Garoppolo are both back, unless the Patriots franchise-tag Garoppolo to be Brady's backup.

The Indianapolis Colts are finally coming around to the fact that Andrew Luck will not be ready for their Week 1 opener against the Los Angeles Rams, his surgically repaired shoulder not yet healed enough to play.

Colts owner Jim Irsay on Thursday said that Luck was unlikely to be ready for the team's Week 1 game on the road against the Los Angeles Rams on September 10. The trade could also signal their discomfort with quarterback Scott Tolzien, who was 23 of 34 for for 241 yards and an interception in the preseason.

The best way to summarize the Brissett trade is to suggest the Patriots got a player who is likely to play for one who was not likely to play. "But let me be clear about it: In our own minds it's something that we haven't ruled out". It just allows him to be able to return to the practice field, rather than being shelved for the first six weeks.

His first start came September 22 in a 27-0 win against the Houston Texans. Brissett also rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown on 16 attempts during his rookie season in New England. He also carried the ball five times for 27 yards. The Colts get a quarterback who made two starts during the 2016 season as a rookie after he was taken in the third round.

Tillerson: Trump 'Speaks For Himself'
Wallace asked Tillerson whether Trump's words in recent weeks had made it more hard to promote American values overseas . One failed and none posed risk to the United States, the US Pacific Command said in a statement late Friday.

Dorsett, a first-round pick in 2015, has not fared well in Indianapolis.

In two seasons with the Colts, Dorsett played in 26 games with seven starts and caught 51 passes for 753 yards and three touchdowns.

Previous year his numbers went up - 33 catches, 528 yards, two TD, with just one fumble. The Patriots could use the receiver depth regardless, especially following the season-ending knee injury to veteran Julian Edelman.
