• Browns agree to deal with veteran QB Hoyer

    Summary of 14 articles · Updated May 19, 2013
    On Friday, Hoyer, a four-year NFL veteran, signed with the Cleveland Browns. Hoyer, who is from the Cleveland area, has made just one career start in four NFL seasons. Browns GM Mike Lombardi has said in the past he really likes Hoyer. Since Lombardi said this, Hoyer has made one career start and bounced from New England to Pittsburgh to Arizona. Hoyer’s probably about as good as it is going to get on the free agent market until team start making cuts during camp this summer, however, and adding a player who can learn the offense quickly enough to win the job at that point is, to put it mildly, a long shot. The following season, Hoyer earned honorable mention All-Ohio accolades by completing 158 of 281 attempts for 2,570 yards and 21 touchdowns. He agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Browns on Thursday night and will sign his contract soon.
