49ers' Brian Hoyer: Officially a 49er
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Hoyer to a two-year contract Thursday.

Entering free agency without a QB on the roster, the 49ers quickly filled one of the spots with Hoyer during the two-day window to contact unrestricted free agents. The destination could be kind to Hoyer, who previously put together his only 3,000-yard season under the watchful eye of then Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in 2014. Hoyer will also have a handful of interesting receivers, namely free-agent pickups Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin, plus holdovers Jeremy Kerley and Vance McDonald (shoulder).

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Heading to Bay Area
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers are expected to sign Hoyer once free agency begins Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hoyer fared well in his stint as the Bears' starting quarterback last season, cobbling together four consecutive 300-yard performances before breaking his left forearm in Week 7. As he heads to San Francisco, he'll reunite with new head coach Kyle Shanahan, who served as the Browns' offensive coordinator during the sole 3,000-yard campaign of Hoyer's career in 2014. With running back Carlos Hyde (knee), wideout Jeremy Kerley, and Vance McDonald (shoulder) already in place -- and Pierre Garcon about to join the party -- Hoyer will have an opportunity to post respectable numbers with the eighth organization of his career.

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Resumes football activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer (forearm) is "all set" to return to football-related activities, Crain's Cleveland reports.

Hoyer ended the 2016 campaign on injured reserve due to a broken left forearm suffered in Week 7 against the Packers. Now roughly three months removed from corrective surgery, he stated he's received clearance from his doctor to resume football activities, a fortunate development for the quarterback who's set to hit unrestricted free agency.

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Set to hit free agency in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Before being placed on injured reserve on October 24, Hoyer (forearm) threw for 1,445 yards along with six touchdowns and no interceptions in six games.

Hoyer threw for at least 300 yards in the four full games he played, and more impressively, he didn't throw a single pick. His 2016 performance could help him secure a contract with a new team that could also provide him a chance to become a starting quarterback in a league that's often desperate for competent performance at the position. His strong 2016 performance follows up his lone season in Houston, where he tossed 19 touchdowns to just seven interceptions, and if he does secure a starting job, he'll be at least a fantasy backup with upside to be a lower-end starter in 12-team leagues.

Bears' Brian Hoyer: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer (forearm) was moved to the Bears' injured reserve list Monday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Hoyer is expected to be out for at least eight weeks, and with the Bears already on the outside-looking-in as far as the playoff picture goes, it likely made the most sense to simply shut the quarterback down for the remainder of the season in order to free up a roster spot. Meanwhile, Jay Cutler (thumb) was cleared to return Monday and will take over starting duties while Matt Barkley reverts to backup status.
