Summary

The Texans signed former Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer in the offseason to fill one of two roles. One, earn his way past Ryan Mallett and become the starting signal caller for the team, or two be a solid backup and provide depth for a team with question marks at the position. Like Mallett, Hoyer has been waiting in the wings for a chance to prove his worth. He found brief success with the Browns before suffering a major knee injury, which further dampened his chances. Last year, amid the Johnny Manziel follies, Hoyer was given the chance to resurrect the Browns and finished with a 7-6 record with good, but not great stats. At age 29, he brings veteran experience to the Texans and adequate skills to be a starter with the ability to be a quality backup if that's where his path leads. Most expect Ryan Mallett to earn the starting role, but don't be surprised to see Hoyer enter the fray at some point this season. (May 15)

Texans | Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett splitting reps (Thu May 28, 02:14 PM) - Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer split first-team repetitions in offseason workouts Wednesday, May 27, with QB Ryan Mallett. 'The tempo (stood out),' said Hoyer. 'You can tell we put a lot of work in and guys were just prepared. There weren't a lot of mental mistakes. Guys came ready to go and it was exciting -- got after it a little bit.'

Our View: The Battle For King Mediocre has begun in Houston - try not to snore when you fall asleep monitoring this competition. We know Hoyer is an average-at-best quarterback, which tells you all you need to know about the progress of one Ryan Mallett. A dark horse is Tom Savage, but he's still a project and might be a year away from really being a contender for the job. Houston has a tremendous defense, some excellent offensive weapons and a solid offensive line--but no quarterback. If anything holds them back from true contention this year, it will be the lack of a quality passer.
