As the Denver Broncos continue to search for a third quarterback to add to the roster, the team has planned a visit with former Houston Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer on Thursday.
So far in the 2016 free agency period, the Denver Broncos have lost Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock “Brent” Osweiler to the Houston Texans. The team has traded for Mark Sanchez from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Now a quarterback that was previously linked to the Broncos has entered the race for the third quarterback spot.
Former Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer has a visit scheduled with the Denver Broncos on Thursday. He recently left the New York Jets without a contract offer. Now he will visit the Super Bowl 50 Champs and see his options there.
This is a very interesting development. With almost no development in the Colin Kaepernick talks in what seems to be forever, the Broncos are looking at all the other options. Hoyer was recently linked to the Broncos when the prospect of his potential release.
Last season, Brian Hoyer recorded over 2,600 yards passing with 19 TD’s and seven interceptions. While the numbers were average, his QBR of 91.7 was solid. He did have a horrendous final game of his Texans career when the Kansas City Chiefs laid the smack down 30-0.
In that game, Brian Hoyer turned the ball over six times. Not good at all, which probably led to his release coupled with the Osweiler signing.
I think he would make a solid backup for the Broncos if they decide to give him a contract. I know that having Brian Hoyer on the roster will not be a popular opinion for some of the fans of Broncos Country, but hey, the Broncos won the Super Bowl without stellar quarterback play.
Why not see if Brian Hoyer can fit the system of the Denver Broncos? Plus, it is not like they are going to sign him just because he is visiting. There is always that prospect, but it isn’t set in stone either.
Just remember one thing. In Elway We Trust. And let the quarterback situation take its course.
