It’s been a wild few days in the NFL as teams around the league had to trim their rosters to 53.
The New England Patriots made plenty of headlines, from releasing wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to cutting ties with backup quarterback Brian Hoyer. The 33-year-old signal-caller already is generating interest from teams around the league, but it appears one team in particular is “very interested.”
ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported Sunday the Indianapolis Colts have a keen interest in Hoyer.
It certainly makes a lot of sense after the abrupt retirement of Andrew Luck, which left the Colts without a backup. The team does have Jacoby Brissett as its starter, and both he and Hoyer have worked under Tom Brady.
Only time will tell what Hoyer’s next move will be.
