It's Now a Reality: Browns Agree to Terms With QB Brian Hoyer on 2-Year Deal

USA TODAY Sports

If you want the preamble to the Cleveland Browns' rumored interest in quarterback Brian Hoyer, then go back and read this article that we published a couple of days ago. With the Arizona Cardinals having recently released Hoyer, I asked the question, "should the Browns take a flier on Hoyer?" As it turns out, that's exactly what they did.

At this point, I think the Browns are still planning on entering the season with Brandon Weeden as their starting quarterback. The signing of Hoyer intensifies a possible competition between him and Jason Campbell, though. Campbell was signed earlier in the offseason. Thaddeus Lewis is also on the roster.

Are you surprised that the Browns added Hoyer? Do you think there is any chance he will compete for the starting role in Week 1?
