According to Rapoport, the Texans are expected to part ways with Hoyer at some point, and the possibility at least exists that they could trade him.
NFL sources tells Wilson that “several teams” would be interested in acquiring Hoyer should he become available.
If Houston trades or released Hoyer, could go with Tom Savage as the primary backup to Osweiler.
For what it’s worth, Jason La Canfora mentioned earlier that that a potential landing spot for Hoyer when/if he’s released by the Texans is the Steelers. La Canfora mentions that Hoyer left a very strong impression during his brief time in Pittsburgh.
Additionally, Joel Corry thinks it is just a matter of time before Hoyer gets released.
Hoyer, 30, signed a two-year, $10.5 million contract that included $4.75 million guaranteed with the Texans last year. He’ll make a base salary of $5.25 million in 2016.
In 2015, Hoyer appeared in 11 games and accumulated 2,606 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, one interception and completed 60.7 percent of his passes. Pro Football Focus rated Hoyer as the No. 31 quarterback out of 38 qualifying players.
