Patriots signed restricted free agent QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year, $1.92 million contract.
So much for exploring his opportunities to land a starting job. Hoyer's quick signing suggests his agent realized no team was going to forfeit a second-round pick to take a chance on the inexperienced signal-caller. Barring a trade, Hoyer will back up Tom Brady for another season before reaching the open market in 2013. The Pats could get a comp pick back if he gets a big deal next year.
