Brian Hoyer: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Hoyer is expected to share first-team reps with Ryan Mallett when the Texans kick off organized team activities later this month, the Texans' official site reports.

Hoyer, as expected, will sign with the Texans, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer and Texans head coach Bill O'Brien spent time together in New England, which should help to accelerate Hoyer's learning curve in the Houston offense. The veteran will presumably compete with Ryan Mallett for the starting job coming off a disappointing season in Cleveland. Hoyer got the Browns off to their best start in quite some time, but his play was shaky throughout the season, and it got worse later in the year. He was eventually benched for Johnny Manziel, who promptly showed why the Browns waited so long to make a move. Hoyer isn't particularly accurate and has subpar arm strength for a starting quarterback, but he should have the advantage over Mallett when it comes to decision-making ability, not to mention an obvious advantage in experience. Ryan Fitzpatrick will likely be looking for a new team.
Hoyer is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Texans once free agency officially opens Tuesday, Cleveland.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Hoyer will open the year as Cleveland's starter, but he's unlikely to hold off 22nd overall pick Johnny Manziel for more than a few weeks. Returning from an October ACL tear and throwing to a WR rotation that will be without Josh Gordon, Hoyer will likely struggle when he sees the field, at which point the stage will be set for Manziel. Hoyer was somewhat effective with Gordon on the field last year, though, throwing five touchdowns compared to three interceptions.

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.
