After signing Brock Osweiler and re-signing Brandon Weeden at the beginning of April, the Houston Texans have told quarterback Brian Hoyer that they will release him, a source told ESPN’s Adam Caplan.
Hoyer had arguably his best regular season with Houston last season. He played in 11 games, with nine starts, going 5-4. He threw for 2,606 yards with 19 touchdowns against only seven interceptions.
But the AFC wild-card game was a different story. He had four interceptions and a fumble in a 30-0 loss to the Chiefs.
The 30-year-old Hoyer has played for four teams in seven seasons in the league.
Osweiler was signed away from the Broncos to be the starter. He received a four-year deal worth $72 million, with $37 million guaranteed.
Weeden got a two-year, $4 million deal, a source told ESPN’s Tania Ganguli.
