Brian Hoyer News
New England Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer is preparing to pitch in for the AFC title game against the Jaguars with Tom Brady (hand) nursing a hand injury, although a source said Brady's hand "should be OK" for Sunday. Hoyer took all the practice repetitions in practice Thursday with Brady sitting out. It'd be a huge shock if Brady isn't under center against the Jaguars. His jammed hand isn't believed to be serious, although he probably won't be able to pick apart the Jacksonville secondary like he did to the Titans in the Divisional Round.
Updating a previous report, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer will sign a three-year deal with the New England Patriots on Wednesday, according to a source informed of the contract. Hoyer became expendable in San Fran when the team traded for Jimmy Garoppolo earlier this week. He will serve as Tom Brady's backup in New England and won't have any fantasy value.
Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer is visiting with the New England Patriots on Wednesday, and he is expected to sign with the team, according to a source. Hoyer started the year as San Fran's starting quarterback, but he was demoted to backup and became expendable when the Niners traded for Jimmy Garoppolo. If he signs in New England, he will back up future Hall of Famer Tom Brady for the rest of the year. There is no fantasy value here.
The New England Patriots are without a backup quarterback and are widely expected to sign the newly-released Brian Hoyer, according to NFL.com. Several outlets believe that Hoyer was originally apart of the deal that sent Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers but the Patriots chose to ask for his release to avoid having to give up compensatory draft picks. Hoyer has been awful this season with a QB rating of 28.8 but is a former Patriot who would be familiar with the offense and coaching staff. All of these moves are made with the hope that 40-year old Tom Brady stays healthy through the rest of the season.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer is anticipated to be released by the team. Hoyer signed as a free agent during the offseason on a two-year deal and nearly $7 million guaranteed. This comes after the team traded for New England Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Monday, prompting the move. Hoyer has struggled this season, accumulating 1,245 yards and only four touchdowns. He also has four picks and an underwhelming quarterback rating of 28.8, the second-lowest of his career.
