Report: QB Brian Hoyer is headed to the 49ers on a 2-year deal

Mar 8, 2017 at 11:59 AM--


According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer will be joining the San Francisco 49ers on a two-year deal. The move cannot be made official until the start of free agency on Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific. The 49ers were among three teams reportedly interested in Hoyer. The others were the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills.



Update:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the deal is for two years and $12 million with $10 million guaranteed and $6 million in available incentives. Hoyer could make $9 million per year if he plays well as a starter.

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 (only four were full 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.

Unless the 49ers make a deal for someone like Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins, Hoyer will be the only quarterback on the San Francisco roster. Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract and will likely end up elsewhere via free agency and no other quarterback was on the roster last season was signed beyond 2016.

Bleacher Report identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers. No one knows what is happening with



John Lynch explains the 49ers re-signing Jason Verrett

The San Francisco 49ers re-signed oft-injured cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal on Monday. For the team, it was worth the risk. When Verrett, who entered 2021 as the 49ers' starting cornerback, is healthy, he plays like one of the top corners in the league. The problem is his healthy seasons seem few and far between. Verrett has been in the NFL for eight seasons and has landed on injured reserve during six of those. Verrett's two healthy seasons, though, were impressive. In 2015, he recorded 47 tackles, three interceptions, a touchdown, and 12 passes defensed, earning a career-high Pro Football Focus grade of 88.4 and Pro Bowl selection. Verrett signed with the 49ers in 2019 and again struggled with injuries in that first season with the team. But a

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch stated that the rookie minicamp would kick off on May 12. However, that appears to be when first-year players can report to the team. The NFL announced today that the 49ers' rookie minicamp would take place May 13-15, two weeks after the draft. It will be the first opportunity for 49ers coaches to see its latest draft class, which includes nine players, on the practice field. In addition, several undrafted free agents will join them, along with some players looking to try out for the team. The 49ers drafted the following players in the 2022 NFL Draft. Round 2: Drake Jackson, DE, USC Round 3: Ty Davis-Price, RB, LSU Round 3: Danny Gray, WR. SMU Round 4: Spencer Burford,
