Brissett attended William T. Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Rivals.com ranked him as a four-star recruit and the third best dual-threat quarterback in his class. He committed to play college football at the University of Florida in February 2011.
As a true freshman at Florida in 2011, Brissett was a backup to starter John Brantley. In October, he started his first two career games, after Brantley was injured. His first career start came against number-one ranked LSU. He threw for 94 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the 41–11 loss. Overall, he appeared in eight games, completing 18 of 39 passes for 206 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Entering his sophomore season, Brissett competed with Jeff Driskel for the Gators starting job. Brissett started the opening game against Bowling Green, however Driskel was the starter for the rest of the season. Brissett started his second game of the season against Jacksonville State after Driskel was unable to play due to injury. Overall, he appeared in five games, completing 23 of 35 for 249 yards and a touchdown.
Brissett transferred to North Carolina State University in January 2013. After sitting out the 2013 season due to transfer rules, Brissett took over as the Wolfpack's starting quarterback for 2014. That year, he passed for 2,606 yards with 23 touchdowns and five interceptions. As a senior in 2015, he passed for 2,662 yards and 20 touchdowns.
New England Patriots
Brissett was selected by the New England Patriots in the third round with the 91st overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was the only player selected in the 2016 draft who declined to hire an agent. On June 16, 2016, Brissett signed a four-year rookie contract with the Patriots.
Brissett played in his first regular season game on September 18, 2016, after starter Jimmy Garoppolo left the Patriots' Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins after suffering a shoulder injury. The Patriots were leading 21–0 at the time, and Brissett finished the game completing 6-of-9 passes for 92 passing yards as the Patriots won 31–24. The next week, Brissett made his first career start against the Houston Texans, completing 11 of 19 passes for 103 yards and carrying the ball eight times for 48 yards including a 27-yard touchdown run in a 27–0 victory. He became the first African-American quarterback to start for the Patriots. Brissett injured his thumb in the game against the Texans, but started the following week in a 16–0 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Because the Patriots needed a roster spot for Tom Brady after Brady's Deflategate suspension had ended, Brissett was placed on injured reserve on October 7, 2016, after having thumb surgery. The Patriots activated Brissett from the injured reserve list; he began practicing on November 30, 2016, and was activated to the 53-man roster on December 21, 2016. He was inactive for all of the Patriots' remaining games, including Super Bowl LI, which the Patriots won 34–28 over the Atlanta Falcons.
On September 2, 2017, Brissett was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for wide receiver Phillip Dorsett. On September 10, 2017, against the Los Angeles Rams, Brissett entered the game in relief of Scott Tolzien in the fourth quarter and led the team down the field, resulting in a Marlon Mack touchdown. Brissett completed 2 of 3 passes for 51 yards as the Colts lost 46–9. After Tolzien's struggle in Week 1, Brissett was announced as the Week 2 starter for the Colts. In Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, Brissett threw for a career-high 216 yards and got the Colts out to a 10–0 lead, but after the Cardinals tied things at 13, the game went into overtime. On the first play of overtime, Brissett threw his first career interception and the Cardinals kicked a field goal to win 16–13.
