  • Jimmy Garoppolo¬†of the Patriots reacts before a game

The Patriots reportedly reached an agreement with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer on a three-year contract Wednesday, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hoyer started his career with the Patriots back in 2009, before being released in 2012.

He appeared in 13 games over that span as Tom Brady's backup.

Hoyer then ended up with the Houston Texans in 2015 and led the team to the playoffs after making nine starts. None of those players played quite as well as they did with New England.

That was Bill Belichick's explanation today as he talked about his motivation for trading backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco last night and breaking up what he said was maybe the "best quarterback situation" in the NFL.

The 25-year-old Garoppolo has two National Football League starts to his name, completing 71.2 percent of his passes for 496 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions en route to wins over the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins a year ago. "He's got obviously some years in our system and our terminology", McDaniels said.

"I couldn't ask for anything more than he's given", he said. With few free-agent options available, it's intriguing to wonder whether the Patriots would consider pursuing Colin Kaepernick, given that Kaepernick has performed well against them in the past.
