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)
