Hoyer returns to twice-familiar grounds in New England. Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Brian Hoyer landed quickly with the New England Patriots after being released by the Indianapolis Colts, and it’s not just because of his familiarity with the organization.

Hoyer’s agent Joe Linta told Ian Rapoport of NFL Media that Hoyer preferred the Patriots because they are going to give him the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job.

The Patriots are not pursuing other veterans . It looks exceedingly likely that Hoyer, Jarrett Stidham, and Cody Kessler will be their quarterback room in 2020. Hoyer and Stidham will likely compete to start. Based on this agreement, Hoyer is clearly confident he can seize that chance.
