The Patriots are signing Brian Hoyer, according to The Boston Globe’s Jim McBride.
New England is bringing back a veteran quarterback they are obviously very comfortable and familiar with, and Hoyer will likely be a good presence for rookie first-rounder Mac Jones to lean on at least through the summer.
Sharpe just re-signed with Kansas City earlier this offseason, so he’s again in search of a new team. Perhaps the Titans will be a landing spot for the former fifth-round pick of Tennessee given the team’s light receiver depth chart.
The Jaguars have waived Ryquell Armstead, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.
Armstead missed the 2020 season due to complications from COVID-19, so hopefully he’s healthy and fit to get a fair shot elsewhere. The former Temple standout runs with power and aggressiveness, which will make him a name to keep an eye on from a fantasy perspective in both redraft and dynasty leagues; Miami and Atlanta come to mind as strong landing spots.
The former Jaguars receiver has not played since early 2019 after a torn ACL and then a 2020-opt out after signing with the Patriots, but he lands in a very good spot to potentially win a nice role on offense behind top two wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel this season. The 2012 Biletnikoff Award winner while at USC will return to the West Coast with a shot to play for a contender.
