Patriots To Sign Brian Hoyer

Given the names available and the team's cap situation, it's likely they're done adding to the position outside of April's draft.

Hoyer started his career with the Patriots and also had stints with the Cardinals, Browns, Texans, Bears and 49ers before returning to New England last season. Surely, he'll be in the mix to serve as a starter in 2020.

During his tenure as Brady's backup, Hoyer threw for 335 yards with a 62.7 completion percentage. Brady gave Hoyer tasks in film study, mostly opponent red zone defense, and leaned on him to compare notes. "His 2018 numbers with the Jets were promising, with 27 pressures and at 6'3", 263 pounds he has good size to play on the edge of the Patriots defense.

He added the 65-year-old would work from home for the time being and undergo "regular tests" for COVID-19 in the coming days. People will still be allowed to go to work and to leave home to care for relatives, shop and visit doctors.

With Tom Brady leaving for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Colts signing Philip Rivers to a one-year deal, Hoyer became an option for the Patriots a day ago. He is making $2 million from the Indianapolis Colts, who released him on Saturday, so with offset language, Hoyer will make $2 million in guarantees total this season between the two teams.

What other QBs could the Patriots add?

Copeland adds depth at linebacker after the Patriots lost Kyle Van Noy, Jamie Collins, and Elandon Roberts in free agency.

Here's a full outlook of the Patriots' offseason activity as of Sunday.
