The Washington Commanders have taken calls on backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, but the price has been prohibitive for other teams, as they are asking for a Day 2 draft pick. However, Brissett's price could come down now after the Arizona Cardinals sent quarterback Joshua Dobbs to the Minnesota Vikings for a late-round pick swap on Tuesday. The Commanders have less than an hour before the trade deadline passes on Halloween. They already sent pass-rushers Montez Sweat and Chase Young packing to Chicago and San Francisco, respectively. Brissett was serviceable in a starting role for the Cleveland Browns last year when Deshaun Watson was suspended, but he has yet to start a game in 2023 with Sam Howell the clear starter under center in D.C.

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett completed 10-of-15 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. With Sam Howell getting the night off, the Commanders turned to Brissett to lead the offense. The eighth-year journeyman looked strong in the pocket while giving Washington their first score of the game on a 39-yard pass to wide receiver Mitchell Tinsley. Although he's not the starter, Brissett appears to be a strong insurance policy that can keep Washington's offense afloat if things go south with Howell at any point.

Washington Commanders quarterback Jacoby Brissett will start for the team in the preseason finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. Second-year signal-caller Sam Howell was named the starter for the regular season, but Brissett could be sprung into action if he proves to be ineffective. In two-QB and superflex leagues, the veteran journeyman is one of the most valuable backup quarterbacks to roster. He has thrown 48 touchdowns to 23 interceptions in 76 career game appearances.

The Washington Commanders on Friday officially named quarterback Sam Howell as their starter under center heading into the 2023 regular season, meaning veteran Jacoby Brissett will open the year as the backup. Howell and Brissett had been in a competition for the job since organized team activities in the spring, but the foregone conclusion was always that Howell would win the job to open the year. The 30-year-old Brissett did a commendable job running the Cleveland Browns' offense last year before Deshaun Watson returned from his suspension, and he has 48 career starts in the NFL. If Howell struggles early in the year, don't be surprised if the Commanders turn to Brissett, who would then be on the radar as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues.
