Rapoport: 49ers showing ‘strong interest’ in QB Brian Hoyer

Mar 8, 2017 at 7:33 AM--


According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, both the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Jets are showing interest in Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer.


Update:
The Associated Press reports that the Buffalo Bills are joining the 49ers and Jets as teams interested in acquiring Hoyer.

On Tuesday, it was reported by Mike Silver of NFL Media that the 49ers have set their sights on wide receiver Pierre Garçon and San Francisco could be a likely destination for him. Rapoport added on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" on Wednesday that the receiver should earn upwards of $10 million per season. Could the 49ers be gearing up for a Hoyer to Garçon pairing as a stopgap until the team can acquire their quarterback of the future?

Hoyer, an eight-year veteran, started 13 games while current 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for a season (2014) in Cleveland. That year, Hoyer passed for a career-high 3,326 yards, completing 55.3 percent of his passes and throwing 12 touchdowns compared to 13 interceptions. Over the past three seasons, Hoyer has passed for 7,377 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions through 31 games.


Last season with Chicago, Hoyer broke his left arm during a game against the Green Bay Packers in October. He was placed on injured reserve four days later. Through six games, Hoyer passed for 1,445 yards, six touchdowns, and no interceptions.

In 2009, Hoyer was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State by the New England Patriots. In 2015, the 49ers were among the teams interested in Hoyer, who eventually joined the Houston Texans.

"It's in his DNA, it's what consumes him," Hoyer said of Shanahan back in January via TheMMQB. "He's proven that, as far as being an offensive coordinator, he can produce a lot of great things. That experience, how long has he been in the league? He's coached in the league since he was 24, 25. So he's got a lot of coaching experience. Like players learn so much from playing in a game, it's probably the same. Then, you become a head coach."

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area criticized the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff after the team's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Even with several offensive weapons back in the lineup, the Niners looked nothing like the team that just eight months ago played for a Super Bowl championship. They own a 2-3 record, and their hopes of returning to the big game seem to diminish more with each passing week. "I just try to hold us all accountable. Know it starts with me," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the loss. It sounds like Maiocco agrees. He didn't blame the players. Instead, he blamed the coaching staff that made some seemingly questionable personnel

Fans won't see Ian Rapoport on NFL Network over the next 10 days, but the NFL insider was on KNBR Monday morning to discuss the San Francisco 49ers' stunning loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Part of the discussion surrounded the poor play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who is recovering from the high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss two games. Garoppolo's performance was enough to bench the starter at halftime in favor of C.J. Beathard. Although, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that was more to protect Garoppolo, who was sacked three times during the first half. "You could tell he was affected by his ankle,"
