Report: Houston Texans want to drop Brian Hoyer, no one shocked
In the least surprising news of the offseason, reports are indicating the Houston Texans and Brian Hoyer are headed towards a separation
After acquiring quarterback Brock Osweiler from the Denver Broncos, the writing was on the wall for 2015 starter Brian Hoyer. Anyone who followed the team could see that the man who turned the ball over five times in the Houston Texans lone playoff game this past season was headed out the door.
His turnovers paired with the huge contract given to the new face-of-the-franchise quarterback made the recent report from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport pretty much a non-story.
Rapoport says that Hoyer and the Texans are “headed for a divorce“, and that both sides are fine with looking for a fresh start.
It makes sense for the Texans because Hoyer is making quite a bit of money to come in simply as a backup. It may also be difficult for the team to put much faith in Hoyer as he struggled with concussions and turnovers at the worst time.

For Hoyer, it makes even more sense to be open for a move. With players like Robert Griffin III (Cleveland Browns), Geno Smith (New York Jets) and Mark Sanchez (Denver Broncos) looking at possibly starting, there would seem to be a market for a guy who completed 60.7 percent of his passes for 2,606 yards with 19 touchdowns and just seven picks.
Although they may be looking to move one, don’t expect the quarterback to be cut anytime soon. For Houston, the dearth of quality starters makes trying to trade Hoyer the smart move. They will most likely see what they can get, if anything.
