Patriots sign Hoyer as Brady's backup after Garoppolo trade

02 November 2017

Hoyer would have probably been given an opportunity to start in Green Bay over Brett Hundley, but he knew that was temporary.

Franchise quarterback Tom Brady was the only quarterback on the Patriots' roster after the team traded Garoppolo and third-stringer Jacoby Brissett to the Colts for wide receiver Phillip Dorsett in September.

The Patriots signed former 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer on Wednesday to fill the role, a day after Hoyer was released by San Francisco following its acquisition of Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade with New England.

Hoyer began his career as Brady's backup in New England in 2009, and has spent time with seven National Football League teams during his nine-year career.

New England fans, known for their measured perspective on sports, took the news well.

"Every player wants to play - I understand that", he said. With few free-agent options available, it's intriguing to wonder whether the Patriots would consider pursuing Colin Kaepernick, given that Kaepernick has performed well against them in the past.
