As Clevleland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer got back on the field during a minicamp for the first time since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last season, he still views himself as the starter.
"Until someone tells me otherwise, I feel like I'm the starter for this team," Hoyer told Cleveland reporters.
Hoyer won both of his first two starts last season before injuring his knee against the Buffalo Bills.
Of course, the Browns could draft a rookie quarterback to become their starter.
And they also auditioned veteran quarterbacks Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen at their minicamp.
"I know we don't play a game until August, but I also know that in order to be the guy in August you put the time in in the offseason," Hoyer said.
At the very least, Hoyer figures to be in the Browns' plans as a bridge to their next starter.
