Player Outlook

After a nightmarish performance in the playoffs, Brian Hoyer will back up Jay Cutler for the Bears this season. That means Hoyer won't play until Cutler misses playing time, something that has happened for six straight seasons. The only way Hoyer should be drafted is in the deepest of two-quarterback leagues by owners who are incredibly dependent on Cutler.

  • Bears' Brian Hoyer: Signs with Chicago
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer will sign a one-year deal with the Bears. Hoyer was waiting out the 2016 NFL Draft before deciding on his fifth NFL destination, and he wasted no time by agreeing to terms with the Bears on Saturday evening. After starting 11 games in Houston last season, the 30-year-old will serve as a backup to Jay Cutler in 2016.

  • Brian Hoyer: Waiting to see how draft plays out
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer will wait to see how the NFL Draft plays out before choosing where to sign, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Released by the Texans in mid-April, Hoyer has already visited with the Broncos and Jets. The former team reportedly hopes to trade for Colin Kaepernick, while the latter will likely reach an agreement with Ryan Fitzpatrick eventually. Hoyer makes sense as a backup plan for both franchises, and he could also be a fit in San Francisco if Kaepernick is traded.

  • Brian Hoyer: Set to visit Broncos
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer will visit the Broncos in addition to the Jets, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. While it's possible that the Jets are simply trying to parlay a Hoyer visit into some added leverage in terms of luring back fellow QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Broncos could present Hoyer with an interesting scenario. Specifically, a chance to compete with Mark Sanchez, now that Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler are no longer in Denver's signal-calling mix.

  • Brian Hoyer: Set to visit Jets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer is slated to visit the Jets, ESPN.com reports. Per the report, the Jets were interested in adding Hoyer last offseason, but after he signed with the Texans, the team went with Ryan Fitzpatrick instead. With Fitzpatrick and the Jets currently at a contract impasse, the team will revisit its interest in Hoyer, but we expect that luring back Fitzpatrick remains the preferred outcome for the Jets.

  • Brian Hoyer: Released by Texans
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer has been released by the Texans, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. With the Texans having signed quarterback Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million contract earlier this offseason, it's no surprise that Hoyer is moving on. He'll now look to catch on elsewhere, though it remains to be seen if Hoyer's next team signs him as clear backup, or presents him with an opportunity to compete for a starting job.
