    Brian Hoyer Available?

    27 years old. Was Brady's backup in NE before Mallet beat him out.

    Played a decent game last year for Arizona and they tendered him at the 2nd round level.

    6'2. 215. Strong arm. From Michigan State

    Probably available for a 7th round pick

    Thoughts?

    Arizona put a 2nd round - $2.023M tender on him about a week or so ago...

    Because he has the same chance to be a successful NFL starter that most of the potential draft picks do.

    Because he is a low risk high reward acquisition.

    Because we have a 35 year old "backup" who hasn't played in 2 years.

    That's pretty much why

    That means he is eligible to be traded to any team.

    I happen to think we have a 26yr old backup, but that's just me.

    Hoyer has studied under the Pats' system for 2 years, that might have some value.

    Just wait until Zona cuts him. We are drafting a QB in this draft. I really think the reason we still have 8 mil cap is the team is still thinking Sanchez will be cut after camp. I could very well see us with a draft pick Garrard and a cut day pick up as our 3 QBs this year.

    Mentioned Browns interest in Hoyer earlier, McCoy being gone makes that a bit more feasible... so I may have misspoke #can'tstoptradingQBs

    I'd take the chance on Hoyer for a 7th round pick. He does have a very strong arm and has played in the cold and wind of the Northeast.

    I happen to think our older backup is a heck of a QB and w2ill beat out everyone on the roster. But Hoyer can be excellent insurance and if he plays well for us in camp and preseason and so does McElroy, Suckchez will be jettisoned! We will not pay a clipboard holder 8.25 million. Perhaps we can get something good or decent for him.

    RFA QB Brian Hoyer has signed his one-year qualifying offer. RB William Powell & DE Ronald Talley, both ERFA's, have signed their tenders.


    Could still be traded.

    I'd take anyone over Sanchez and Tebone. I'm Garrard's #1 fan at this point.

    If Garrard hits his 2013 ceiling that means we probably win 8-9 games which plays us right out of the running for a QB in 2014 which we will need because Garrard doesnt have a future in the league.

    If we gave a 7th round for someone like Hoyer, who learned under brady for 2 seasons, has a strong arm, and has at least participated in NFL games already (ie not a rookie) and he reaches his 2013 ceiling then not only do we win some games but we have our QB for the next few years.

    If he flops, then we probably win 4-6 games and might actually be in play for a QB for the future.

    I just think a calculated risk like that, with a young player who has upside, as opposed to a veteran who has nothing but downside is a much smarter move.

    Not to stick up for Tebow but we never really did see him play a full game or even a half. If he could do what he did in Denver, and if the team would dedicate the offense to making sure that could occur, I think it would be a damn sight better than the crap we saw last year. Just sayin'.

    Okay so now you're just running with the pack. Lots of misinformation has been passed around about this player but the fact is he actually has connected on some perfectly thrown deepballs and broken the spirit of defenses around the NFL with his fullback-type running attack. He sent us home with our butts kicked up in Denver in 2011 too.


    The kid doesn't "suck". You may not like his evangelical religious thing, but the kid doesn't "suck".
