Brian Hoyer takes 49ers to Texas for passing camp

‘Tis the season for off-site passing camps, and 49ers starter Brian Hoyer is taking his guys to Texas.

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Hoyer gathered the 49ers skill position players in Dallas Monday for three days of work to carry them through the break before training camp opens.

It is such a long period of time that you want to get together at least for some period,” Hoyer said. “We’ll get as many guys together as we can. We can’t accommodate everybody [because] people are coming in from all across the country. So we’re going to get together, get three days in, and then come back ready to go July 27.”

While the facility at Southern Methodist University might be centrally located, it’s going to be steaming hot for them.

All four of their quarterbacks were there, with Matt Barkley, C.J. Beathard, and Nick Mullens joining the veteran bridge (to 2018) starter.

They were joined by the 49ers odd lot of receivers which includes Jeremy Kerley and Marquise Goodwin and tight end Vance McDonald, among others.

The lack of recognizable names on the rest of the list speaks to the issues Hoyer will have this year as they try to rebuild under coach Kyle Shanahan and General Manager John Lynch. But Hoyer was brought in primarily because he knows the system Shanahan wants to put in, so spending a little extra time with it isn’t going to hurt.

  1. Watching “Hard Knocks” and now “All or Nothing” it shows the fans how hard being a journey men QB is on a family.. Hoyer has been on almost every team in the NFL… when does he pull the plug on it?

  2. “when does he pull the plug on it?”

    —————————————

    When he finds another job that pays better, or has earned enough to create lasting financial stability for his family… or in other words, not until someone decides to pull the plug for him.

  3. lotta hate out there today. Good job Brian, the team looks out manned on paper so practice and execution will have to overcome the lack of blue chip athletes. Thanks for pulling this together. I am not a 49’s fan but love good competitive football. These sort of things help achieve that.

  4. I have little sympathy for how tough it is on a family when their income is measured in the multiple millions of dollars.

  5. I love it! Better seize this opportunity Hoyer, because if you struggle Kirk Cousins’ agent will be on speed dial next off season. Ball outta control.

  6. If Hoyer plays well, will Texans fans wake up and realize Bill Obrien needs to go?

  7. Do these camps violate the CBA?

    No, because they aren’t associated with the league or the team in any way. It’s a bunch of guys getting together on their own.

    Who is on the hook if someone blows out a knee?

    The player is. They would get NFI-ed depending on the severity of the injury.

  8. WOW! That offense is downright offensive. Looks like #2 overall pick again next year (Jets will have #1)

  9. Umm, Pierre Garcon? Isn’t he supposed to be “the man” for the Niners? (Work ethic) role models for the younger guys are over-rated, I guess. Hope his reason for not being there isn’t that he had other, better, things to do. I hope my cynicism is premature. Go Niners!
