The New England Patriots reached an agreement to bring back quarterback Brian Hoyer on Sunday, according to the MMQB’s Albert Breer.

This marks Hoyer’s third stint with the Patriots. He started his career there in 2009 and played in 13 games over three seasons as Brady’s backup. He then returned in 2017 and was a member of the Super Bowl LIII-winning team.

The move is the team’s first at the quarterback position since Tom Brady departed to the Buccaneers.

So what’s the plan, apparently let Stidham and Hoyer duke it out. 

Flip the Page to read the report:  

Hoyer’s agent, Joe Linta, told ProFootballTalk that the Patriots offered Hoyer the opportunity to win the starting gig. This is why the veteran turned down more money elsewhere. 

Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler are the other quarterbacks in New England at the moment. 

So Hoyer has a legit chance to start.
