The New England Patriots added another quarterback after Tom Brady signed a two-year, $50 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, putting veteran Brian Hoyer in third place of the team. According to ESPN’s Mike Rice, the Patriots signed a one-year contract with Hoyer. ESPN’s Adam Schefter provided more details about Hoyer’s deal, saying it was worth $1.05 million, but the alarm system was worth up to $2 million, thanks in part to his contract with the Indianapolis Colts.
The 34-year-old Hoyer became available after the Colts released him after veteran Philip Rivers signed a $25 million one-year contract.
Hoyer is the most experienced patriot of the BQ
This year, the Patriots’ quarterback is the most experienced with 69 NFL games in his career, with 38 starting during his time with the Colts, Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Brownes, Houston Texas, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers. Last season Hoyer was with the Patriots, but for the role of Brady supporter he was defeated by newcomer Jarrett Stidham.
The Patriots hoped to get Hoyer back, but the Colts signed a contract with him after Andrew Luck’s sudden resignation. The Patriots in turn signed Cody Kessler, who has five years of experience, as the third quarterback on the list. Hoyer played four games with the Colts last season, starting at 372 yards with four touchdowns and four steals. According to Rice, if Stidham plays for the Patriots as the starting quarterback, Hoyer will certainly help lead a sophomore striker.
During his career, Hoyer threw 52 touchdowns and 34 interceptions of 10,274 meters. Earlier it was reported that the Patriots are not interested in quarterback veterans Andy Dalton and James Winston. It was also suggested that the Patriots exchange Carolina Panther for Cam Newton’s quarterback, whose future with the team became uncertain after Teddy Bridgewater signed a three-year contract worth over $60 million.
