Coach Mike Pettine indicated Friday morning that Hoyer could be featured in a two-quarterback system "down the road," NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Hoyer was named the Browns' starting quarterback Wednesday morning by coach Mike Pettine, ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The team sounds like it will give Hoyer a bit of a leash as Pettine said he doesn't want the veteran constantly looking over his shoulder, but we have to imagine Hoyer - and maybe the Browns as well - has to be mildly successful to keep the team from firing up the Johnny Manziel era.
Hoyer completed just 2-of-6 passes for 16 yards in Monday's preseason game against the Redskins.

Though Hoyer is starting Monday night's game against Washington over rookie Johnny Manziel, coach Mike Pettine indicated Friday that "all of our options are still on the table," the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Hoyer will start Monday's preseason game against the Redskins, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer will split first-team reps with current backup Johnny Manziel, but he'll be the first quarterback to take the field Monday night. This news comes as a bit of a surprise, as Manziel was previously expected to get the starting nod in the game. Although nothing has yet been confirmed by coach Mike Pettine, this report suggests that Hoyer may still own a slight edge over Manziel in the battle for the starting job. Pettine is expected to officially announce his starter prior to the team's third preseason game.
Hoyer and Johnny Manziel should receive the same amount of reps with the Browns' starting offense during Monday's preseason game against the Redskins, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

With regard to the assignment, coach Mike Pettine noted that Hoyer "has done nothing to have that taken away from him." Pettine went on to say that it's possible that Johnny Manziel will start the Browns' second preseason tilt, against Washington, adding that he would still like to name a Week 1 starter by the Browns' third preseason game.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

With the jury still out on Brandon Weeden, the signing of Hoyer by the Browns sparked a bit of conversation at the time of the announcement. He received his first career start last season, though his play in his two games of action failed to change the perception he's going to be anything more than a reserve. He completed 30-of-53 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. The support behind Weeden has grown since Hoyer arrived in Cleveland and he'll battle Jason Campbell for the backup duties this season.

2012

Hoyer, who is ticketed for free agency after this season, has developed into a trusted backup for the Patriots, but if another team suffers an injury at QB, then the Patriots could consider dangling Hoyer, if they feel that Ryan Mallett is ready to assume the No. 2 QB job. That's something that the team is presumably still evaluating, however.

2011

Though the Patriots drafted fellow QB Ryan Mallett this past April, he's viewed as more of a developmental project than an immediate threat to Hoyer's gig as Tom Brady's top backup. In any case, Hoyer remains next in line for snaps in the event of an injury to Brady.

2010

As an undrafted free agent, the odds were stacked against Hoyer last year, but he'll head into the 2010 season as Tom Brady's top backup once again unless the Patriots make a move to add some veteran QB depth.

2009

Like most undrafted QBs he's a bit of a project, but he enters a Patriots' system where he has a chance to be methodically coached up. If he sticks as a rookie though, he'd either have to beat out Matt Gutierrez or settle for a spot on the practice squad.
