Hoyer signed a two-year, $12 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed with the 49ers in March of 2017. He was set to make base salaries of $2.95 million and $3.95 million when San Francisco recently released him.

The Patriots signed him to a three-year deal shortly after being cut by San Francisco. He was entering the final year of his contract and set to earn a base salary of $1.5 million this season.

In 2018, Hoyer was active for five games for the Patriots and recorded one completion on two pass attempts for seven yards.

Beck, 23 was a priority free-agent signing for New England out of Texas after the draft. He received $100,000 in guarantees but won’t make the final roster as a rookie.
