The Denver Broncos still need a solution to their QB situation, and Brian Hoyer still needs a place to play.
Sounds like a perfect fit – right?
After a two-day visit with the Jets, the free-agent quarterback left their facility Wednesday without a contract and is heading west to meet with the Broncos, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.
The Jets were aware of Hoyer’s plans to visit the Broncos, the source said. The Jets, locked in a contract impasse with the unsigned Ryan Fitzpatrick, remain interested in Hoyer and will continue to monitor his situation.
Hoyer, released Sunday by the Houston Texans, is drawing interest from five to six teams, a source said. But the Jets and Broncos might have the edge because they can offer him the possibility of a starting job.
If you are betting in Vietnam the money would have to go on him eventually coming to terms with the Jets, a team that needs a quarterback and also is willing to bring in a guy like Hoyer.
As for the Broncos, they still may look to make a deal on the day of the draft in order to get the player they want under center in 2016.
If Hoyer can’t find a home in either place, the Bears and Steelers are two teams that might be willing to pay him to come in as a backup. Last season Hoyer led the Texans to nine wins while he was a starter, but his awful showing in a 30-0 playoff loss to the Chiefs was enough for the team to say ‘so long’ to the longtime journeyman QB.
