The Cleveland Browns' chances of brining quarterback Brian Hoyer back into the fold in 2015 may be akin to a coin flip, if the prediction of ESPN's Tony Grossi proves accurate:
Grossi: I think its less then 50/50 that Hoyer returns. Haslam hardly said anything about Hoyer yesterday, except hes just an option #Browns
— ESPN Cleveland (@ESPNCleveland) February 12, 2015
Hoyer struggled with inconsistency in 2014, going 7-6 in thirteen starts while posting 3,326 yards, 12 touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and a less-than-stellar 55.3 completion percentage.
He was eventually benched in favor of rookie Johnny Manziel for a time while the team was still in the playoff race, but the Browns saw enough from a on-field leadership perspective with Hoyer to at least keep him on the list of options heading into free agency.
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is remaining tight-lipped about his quarterback situation, but Hoyer may not be a top option for Haslam if recent rumors are any true indication. However, that doesn't mean that things won't fall into place as the free-agent picture clarifies itself next month.
