Cleveland Browns Sign QB Brian Hoyer


Today, the Cleveland Browns added another quarterback to their depth chart. They have signed quarterback Brian Hoyer. Hoyer was released by the Arizona Cardinals this week. According to SiriusXM Radio’s Adam Caplan, Brian Hoyer signed a two year deal with the Browns.

Everybody remembered when Hoyer came into the league as a member of the New England Patriots back in the 2009 season. In 2009, Hoyer would play in five games and throw for 142 yards. But his first start of his NFL career came last season in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers. In that game, the Cardinals would lose 27-13 but Hoyer would play alright. He threw for 225 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

Also Hoyer had a quick stint with the Pittsburgh Steelers in his career. Obviously, Hoyer will not be competing for the number one quarterback spot as that goes to Brandon Weeden. But he will be in competition for the number two quarterback spot with Jason Campbell and Thaddeus Lewis.

Last season Campbell played for the Chicago Bears while Lewis was playing for the Browns. In Week 17, against the Steelers, Lewis threw for 204 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
