Last year, quarterback Brian Hoyer chose the Texans over the Jets. This year, the Jets are still looking to sign a quarterback. And that quarterback could be Hoyer.
With the Texans not getting any trade offers and likewise unwilling to risk owing Hoyer $4 million if he drops a dumbbell on his foot on the first day of offseason workouts, the veteran is once again a free agent, able to sign with any team.
The Jets, who currently are at impasse with 2015 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, could make a quick move to get Hoyer. Or, alternatively, the availability of Hoyer could get Fitzpatrick and the Jets to find a way to make the two circles of their Venn diagram smooch.
The Broncos also could make a play for Hoyer, who was the starter in Cleveland before winning the starting job last year in Houston.
