With Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell on the roster, Hoyer will come in as the third-stringer, with a chance to move up the depth chart.
Weeden was surprised by the move but isn’t worried it, choosing instead to focus on himself and the fact that he currently has a lock on the starting spot.
Hoyer comes most recently from Arizona and general manager Mike Lombardi has never been shy in his affinity for him. Of course, that doesn’t mean anything if Weeden plays better this season.
It never hurts to have options, but a lot is going to have to happen for Hoyer to really get his chance.
