QB Hoyer appears headed to 49ers

QB-needy 49ers, Jets showing interest in Brian Hoyer Jets, 49ers after QB Brian Hoyer, per report

The acquisition of Brian Hoyer won't deter the San Francisco 49ers from trying to further improve their quarterback situation.

Hoyer was on the Jets radar past year, but more importantly for 49ers fans, he played for Kyle Shanahan in Cleveland in 2014.

The person says the talks began Wednesday, when National Football League teams have an open window to contact pending free agents a day before the NFL's signing period begins. Hoyer drew interest from the Jets as well before the 49ers won out, according to reports.

Hoyer spent last season with the Bears but was placed on injured reserve when he suffered a broken arm after just six games.

May accuses Sturgeon of 'twisting the truth' in Scottish independence bid
This prompted Sturgeon to say a second referendum for Scottish independence could not be ruled out. In return the United Kingdom government has so far been one of obstinacy and intransigence.

Niners starter Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract this offseason, leaving San Francisco without a quarterback under contract.

The 49ers, meanwhile, now have no quarterbacks signed for the upcoming season. Was placed on injured reserve after breaking his left arm against the Green Bay Packers on October 30. Considering he's the only signal caller on the roster, he likely sees this as a chance to start for a season or two, getting one more chance to prove his worth. In the interim, Hoyer has the look of an upgrade over what the 49ers have employed at quarterback in recent years. Now, he's off to the Bay Area as the 49ers' new quarterback.

It was assumed Hoyer would be in the running to be the Bears stop-gap quarterback, bridging to an assumed rookie the Bears front office would draft in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Bears and 49ers are set to play this season at Soldier Field, where Hoyer figures to square off with his now-former team.
