The Patriots have added a veteran voice to their quarterback room, signing quarterback Brian Hoyer.
Hoyer was released by the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, following the team signing Philip Rivers earlier in the week. He was due a $2 million roster bonus.
This will be Hoyer's third stint in New England. He was signed as an undrafted free agent prior to the 2009 season, and served as Tom Brady's backup for three years.
After spending time as a starter and backup jumping rosters around the league, he returned in 2017 after the Jimmy Garoppolo trade. He was released at the end of training camp before the 2019 season.
Hoyer joins Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler as the third quarterback on the Patriots roster. Given the names available and the team's cap situation, it's likely they're done adding to the position outside of April's draft.
UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Patriots will pay Hoyer $1.05 million in 2020.
