Brissett Negotiates, Signs Rookie Deal

When Bill Parcells said recently drafted quarterback Jacoby Brissett had similar qualities to Tedy Bruschi, he wasn't kidding. Brissett, like Bruschi, did not hire an agent to work out his rookie deal, instead choosing to do it himself and save the 4% fee.

Patriots third round pick Jacoby Brissett agreed his rookie contract yesterday, choosing to negotiate the deal on his own instead of hiring an agent that would take a 4% commission. It will be interesting to see if Brissetts changes this method if he has success; quarterback contract negotiations can get a little hairy at time, so he may have just avoided an agent because the rookie pay scale is pretty much black and white.
