    Brian Hoyer Released

    The Cardinals put a second round tender on Hoyer and just released him. There was a report previously that the FO liked him as a developmental QB. With Jones and Gradkowski, there does not appear to be room for Hoyer on the roster, but I thought I'd post this for lack of anything else to discuss.

    Why in the world would the Cardinals do that? Why bother with the 2nd round tender?

    If the Steelers like him better than John Parker Wilson, they may just sign him...

    That. A injury can happen at any time.

    You know what's even sadder?

    BTW, it appears that the tender offer, once signed, is NOT guaranteed...

    Cardinals release QB Brian Hoyer

    By Eye on Football staff
    May 13, 2013

    The Cardinals released journeyman QB Brian Hoyer on Monday afternoon, freeing up what had suddenly become a crowded position.

    At best, Hoyer would've been Arizona's third-string QB after the Cardinals traded for former Raiders QB Carson Palmer and signed Drew Stanton this offseason. Quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Cardinals' 2012 sixth-round pick, was also still on Arizona's depth chart.

    Hoyer, who signed late last season with Arizona and saw action in just two games, was slated to make just over $2 million dollars this upcoming season. In his lone start, a 27-13 loss to San Francisco, Hoyer threw for 225 yards on 19-of-34 passing, including one touchdown and one interception.

    One potential landing spot for Hoyer, who served as Tom Brady's backup in New England for three years, could be Cleveland.

    According to NFL.com's Marc Sessler, the Browns had interest in trading for Hoyer during the draft but were unable to get a deal done. Should Hoyer clear waivers, the Browns could potentially sign the 27-year-old in an effort to challenge Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell this offseason.

    Sign him up. Save him from the alternative fate to the northwest.

    I can't see why the Steelers WOULDN'T pick this kid up, I wonder if they still want him like they did before the 2nd round tender was put on him? Would be better than Parker Wilson...and a safety net if Landry Jones can't make it.

    Was very upset when he was released from Pittsburgh, come on..MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    With the Steelers using the fourth round pick on Jones, he is all but assured to make the team. I believe that Gradkowski was also signed to a multi year deal. Barring injury, I think they are essentially locks.

    As for Hoyer, why would he want to sign with the Steelers. Barring injury, he has little chance of making the team, and zero chance of starting. He would be better to look at teams with bad QB situations or weak backup QBs.

    Very good reasoning. You said it, here barring injury he has almost zero chance to make the roster. But this injury can happen anyway.
