There might be no QB controversy whatsoever in Cleveland in 2015.
Veteran Brian Hoyer is “expected to depart” in free agency, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning. However, if the Browns make the postseason, Cleveland might make a run at re-signing Hoyer, ESPN reported.
The 29-year-old Hoyer has completed 222-of-395 passes for 3,056 yards with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has held off first-round pick Johnny Manziel all season, but that margin could be narrowing after Browns coach Mike Pettine contemplated making a change this week.
However, the Browns stuck with Hoyer, who will start Sunday’s game vs. Indianapolis, with Manziel waiting in the wings. The question now is how long Manziel waits to be beckoned on-stage.
