Colts sign QB Brian Hoyer after Andrew Luck's retirement

Colts sign QB Brian Hoyer after Andrew Luck's retirement”

In the ever-changing process of constructing the Indianapolis Colts roster, the team was awarded cornerback Ryan Lewis off waivers (from Buffalo) and waived cornerback Chris Milton.

A new QB in Indy: Colts are signing former Patriots' QB Brian Hoyer to a three-year, $12 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed, per source.

Hoyer's Patriot contract included $1.5 million in guaranteed money and a $200,000 roster bonus he received in March. But on a conference call Sunday, Belichick left the door open that Hoyer could return to New England.

The magnitude of the contract is a clear indication the Colts view Hoyer as at least their backup for 2019.

Hoyer has made 36 starts since 2013. Phillip Walker was signed to the practice squad. Kelly has been placed on the suspended list for the first two games of the season for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He originally signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in 2009. He's completed 59.3% of his passes for 9,902 yards, 48 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. The Colts will be the eighth different team Hoyer has played for after spending time with the Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Hoyer is 16-21 as a starter.
