Quarterback Brian Hoyer's solid performance last night has apparently earned him a roster spot, as the Patriots have reportedly decided to let Andrew Walter go.

Hoyer had a great night Thursday night, finishing 18-of-25 for 242 yards and had a quarterback rating of 115.8, but more importantly he lead the offense to 38 points after being down by three touchdowns. That was apparently all head coach Bill Belichick needed to see.

Walter joins Kevin O'Connell as the latest quarterback casualty in recent weeks, and his release signifies that another veteran could be on their radar, and will likely be brought in to fill his spot.
