Brian Hoyer is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in the National Football League today. He was born on October 13, 1985 in Lakewood, Ohio and started playing football in high school. After graduating from St. Ignatius High School in 2003, he attended Michigan State University where he led the Spartans to two bowl games during his four-year career as a starter.
Hoyer was drafted by the New England Patriots with the 95th pick overall in 2009 NFL Draft and appeared briefly as Tom Brady’s backup during his rookie season before being released at the end of training camp for 2010 season. He then signed with Pittsburgh Steelers but only made it into two regular-season games before being released prior to 2011 season opener due to injury concerns. Following this release, Hoyer signed with Arizona Cardinals for whom he played nine games throughout 2012–2013 seasons including starting three which ended up being his last action as a Cardinal player after being waived less than a month later when Carson Palmer took over as their quarterback.
In December 2013, Brian Hoyer joined Cleveland Browns organization and became their starting quarterback for 2014 season following Brandon Weeden’s demotion within first few weeks of year while leading them to seven wins by year’s end (team had won just four matches combined over previous two years). Following this success, Browns named him their primary signal caller for 2015 but that tenure ended abruptly when an injury suffered Week 11 put him out of commission until 2016 preseason games began rolling around at which point they decided to move forward without him by trading away former first round draft pick Johnny Manziel instead thus paving way for replacement via free agency—Robert Griffin III—who eventually served as team’s starter until midpoint 2017 campaign when Kevin Hogan replaced him under center prompting organization once again turn back towards Hoyer who helped steer franchise ship toward three consecutive victories following return yet despite posting respectable numbers it wasn’t enough keep job permanently since eventual decision makers opted go another direction ahead 2018–2019 seasons thereby opening doors other opportunities such those presented Houston Texans where ultimately landed signing one-year deal shortly thereafter went become leader locker room full franchise records 9th best passer rating among active players league history (84%) proof staying power despite nearing age 35 mark come summertime 2020 bringing story full circle kind speaks volumes about hard work dedication continue display each every day prove doubters wrong all while providing fans city something cheer about lasting legacy build upon going forward thanks part amazing accomplishments achieved across decade plus career along way becoming household name around nation
