After a relatively successful season with the Cleveland Browns, quarterback Brian Hoyer is set to become a free agent, and he is reportedly being pursued by the New York Jets.
Randall Cobb resigns – Green Bay Packers re-sign wide receiver to four-year, $40 million contract
Mark Ingram resigns – New Orleans Saints re-sign running back to four-year, $16 million deal
Dannell Ellerbe released – Miami Dolphins linebacker released after injury-filled 2014 season
The Houston Texans recently expressed their interest in the quarterback, who led the Browns to a 7-6 record before struggling in his last few starts and being benched for rookie Johnny Manziel.
Hoyer was able to manage with a Browns receiving corps that was missing troubled star Josh Gordon for most of the season, so having Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker at his disposal can only be intriguing.
Pro Football Talk reported on the Jets’ interest in Hoyer on Twitter.
