Browns want to sign Brian Hoyer to extension

Posted · Add Comment

The Cleveland Browns want to sign quarterback Brian Hoyer to a contract extension, according to ESPN.

Coming off a torn anterior cruciate ligament, Hoyer is competing with former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel for the starting job.

Hoyer is entering the final year of his contract and is due a $1 million base salary.

The fact that Cleveland wants to sign Hoyer to a contract is a positive sign about his progress from the knee injury. They also think he will likely be a good bridge to Manziel and possibly a long-term backup once he's ready to start.

Hoyer won both of his two starts last season.
