The Ravens would have just so they could ensure that a team quarterbacked by Batch couldn't beat them again.

Does it really matter. Hoyer or Gradkowski? I mean, can't you really throw a lot of back-up QB names? To me, most are interchangeable. It's not like either are Steve young or Aaron Rodgers. back-ups waiting to have starting opportunities. It's the same guy with a different name!

Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly pursued Brian Hoyer

By Marc Sessler
Around the League Writer
Published: March 23, 2013

The Pittsburgh Steelers hopped off the rickety Charlie Batch-Byron Leftwich express this month when they landed backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, but he reportedly wasn't the team's first choice.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Friday that the Steelers "really wanted" Brian Hoyer, a move that became impossible after the Arizona Cardinals slapped a second-round, $2.023 million tender on the 27-year-old passer, which he signed this week.

The Steelers were planning to sign Hoyer as a free agent after he spent part of last season on Pittsburgh's roster, according to Bouchette. Hoyer was signed in November after Ben Roethlisberger and Leftwich were injured but then released in December when cornerback Josh Victorian was promoted off the practice squad.

Few coaches have a better read on Pittsburgh's thinking than former longtime Steelers aide Bruce Arians, who -- now embedded as the Cardinals' coach -- "must have known how much (the Steelers) wanted (Hoyer) back," according to Bouchette. Hence the second-round tender. Hoyer's stock was on the rise as free agency neared, and it's likely the Steelers would have faced competition.

Bouchette reported the Steelers now are considering taking a signal-caller in the mid-to-later rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft. Team brass dined with Tennessee Titans quarterback Tyler Bray before his pro day last week, and Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is on record saying a developmental passer is on the agenda as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger delves deeper into his 30s.

Cardinals release QB Brian Hoyer

By Eye on Football staff
May 13, 2013

The Cardinals released journeyman QB Brian Hoyer on Monday afternoon, freeing up what had suddenly become a crowded position.

At best, Hoyer would've been Arizona's third-string QB after the Cardinals traded for former Raiders QB Carson Palmer and signed Drew Stanton this offseason. Quarterback Ryan Lindley, the Cardinals' 2012 sixth-round pick, was also still on Arizona's depth chart.

Hoyer, who signed late last season with Arizona and saw action in just two games, was slated to make just over $2 million dollars this upcoming season. In his lone start, a 27-13 loss to San Francisco, Hoyer threw for 225 yards on 19-of-34 passing, including one touchdown and one interception.

One potential landing spot for Hoyer, who served as Tom Brady's backup in New England for three years, could be Cleveland.

According to NFL.com's Marc Sessler, the Browns had interest in trading for Hoyer during the draft but were unable to get a deal done. Should Hoyer clear waivers, the Browns could potentially sign the 27-year-old in an effort to challenge Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell this offseason.

That's the guy everyone wanted to keep around? If he can't find a spot on the Cardinals, he's not finding a spot anywhere.
