New coach Mike Pettine provided an interesting answer when asked an open-ended question about how he likes the quarterbacks on his roster.
“Brian Hoyer,” were the first words out of his mouth. “We’re looking forward to getting him back to where at least he’ll do some limited work in the spring. I’ve always admired Brian from afar. He’s proven he can be successful in the NFL, but at the same time, you’re always looking to make the team better and that’s the most important position.”
Most around the league expect the Browns to use their No. 4 pick on a quarterback, but Hoyer, coming off ACL surgery, still potentially could open the season as a starter.
The Browns are widely expected to use the #4 pick on a quarterback, but of the QB-needy teams, the Browns may be in the best situation with Brian Hoyer back in the fold. Hey played pretty well before tearing his ACL in Week 5.
