Brian Hoyer was the best quarterback this season for the Texans, a spot with plenty of contention. Yes, Hoyer did get benched in favor of Ryan Mallett early in the season, however once Mallett got injured, Hoyer took charge and lead the Texans to a division title.
Hoyer's reputation had been tarnished by his performance in the wild card game against the Chiefs, throwing 4 picks leading to a shutout to end the Texans' season.
Hoyer is in the last season of his contract with the Texan's, where he will likely be one of many quarterbacks playing backup to Brock Osweiler in Houston next season. However, with a total of 4 quarterbacks currently on the Texan's roster, a trade to a quarterback needy team wouldn't be unlikely for Hoyer.
Next up, #29
Hint: An all-time great.
