Waiting For Next Year:
Brian Hoyer was signed by the Browns next week and details of his two-year deal are starting to surface. See, unlike depth-chart speculation, this is actually news regarding Brian Hoyer and the Browns.
Brian Hoyer’s 2-year deal w/the Browns is worth $1.965M. $250k of his $715k ’13 base salary is GTD. There’s a ’14 base salary escalator.

Brian Hoyer’s ’14 escalator could be similar to Jason Campbell’s ’14 escalator worth up to $2M. It’s likely that only of them will earn it.

So, as you can see, regardless of whether or not Michael Lombardi thinks Hoyer can start in the NFL or not, nobody, including Hoyer’s representation was holding out for starter-level cash. Far be it for me to look down upon on a couple million bucks, but with only $250k guaranteed in 2013, he’s by no means a lock to be on this team as the Browns easily retained flexibility in the deal to move on whenever they deem it appropriate.
Also keep in mind that Jason Campbell’s deal was for two years and $3.75 million.

Talk about skyrocketing value. Jordan Cameron’s ADP and trade value have ballooned over the last few weeks.

The rise is mostly due to recent comments from the Browns’ coaching staff that have led fantasy owners to speculate about Cameron’s ceiling...
