49ers officially sign QB Brian Hoyer

Mar 9, 2017 at 3:59 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have officially signed former Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer to a two-year agreement. The deal between Hoyer and the 49ers was reported on Wednesday, but could not become official until after the start of free agency at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

The 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.

Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
