If you’re a living, breathing quarterback, there’s probably a market for you.
So it figures there’s competition for a guy who has rarely been viewed as more than a stop-gap.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, journeyman Brian Hoyer has received strong interest from both the 49ers and Jets.
In both places, the role is a huge variable, as both are in the process of their perpetual searches for a starter.
If they were going to draft a quarterback in the first round, Hoyer would probably be a perfectly acceptable bridge until that rookie is ready. But the 49ers have been mentioned as trying to swing a deal for Kirk Cousins, which would make Hoyer a backup.
He played pretty well for the Bears last year before going on IR with a broken forearm, and absolutely wouldn’t be the worst decision either franchise could make.
