Brian Hoyer is set to ink a three-year, $12-million deal with Indianapolis to back up Jacoby Brissett, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The rookie quarterback supplanted Hoyer in the backup role during training camp, but Stidham spoke highly of Hoyer after cuts. Phillip Walker was signed to the practice squad.

After the Broncos cut quarterback Kevin Hogan, ESPN's Dianna Russini reported that Denver was interested in veteran Brian Hoyer, who was released by the Patriots on Saturday. "He has a tremendous amount of experience and is a proven leader".

Brissett was officially named the starting quarterback in Indianapolis last month after Andrew Luck suddenly announced he was retiring after just six seasons in the league - a move that shocked the football world. "We're excited to have him here". He's played in 17 games over three seasons, including starting in 15 for the Colts in 2017.

In all, Brissett is 5-12 as a starter in his career and has passed for 3,500 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Several NFL teams expressed interest in Hoyer, though the Indianapolis Colts appeared to be the frontrunner, bringing the QB in for a visit this weekend.

"In the scenarios that we're talking about right now, no", Reich said when asked if he's concerned about a quarterback coming in and learning critical concepts right away.
