    Re: Free Agents

    If you mean undrafted free agents, they are signing now. Check KFFL.

    Thanks - ESPN was really sold on Hoyer; I think it was Kiper.

    Pats sign UDFA QB Brian Hoyer, Michigan State

    They apparently got the guy they want.

    According to the Detroit News, his stats (180 of 353 passes, 51% completion rate, 2,404 yards, 9 TDs, 9 INTs) are misleading:

    Obviously, the guy has insufficient touch on his passes. ;)

    Re: Pats sign UDFA QB Brian Hoyer, Michigan State

    ESPN went to this kid a couple of times during coverage. Seemed like a good kid in a tough spot - falling out of the draft before a live national audience. I'm really glad we scooped him up!

    Re: Free Agents

    Those are three good udfa's, continuing the Pats tradition of strong udfa's.

    McClinton is a big, fast FS, can play some ST, and will push Spann for a spot. A complement to Chung, who is more physical.

    Love is a big, fast corner, developmental prospect, depth in case of injury.

    Hoyer is a long-shot, but Gutierrez isn't so challenging that he doesn't have a chance.

    Re: Pats sign UDFA QB Brian Hoyer, Michigan State

    Did anyone see how dissapointed Hoyer looked as ESPN had him on camera several times at his house with his girlfriend all bummed out?

    Glad to see BB take a chance,The kid looked dissapointed sitting there

    I will admit I was hoping for Graham Harrell but I think this was a good choice.

    I remember 2 years ago when ESPN kept on showing Brady Quinn up until his name was called - He was sitting there with his girlfriend who didn't look the least bit interested in being there at that time.

    No i think she was some what interested. She cringed every pick dropped. I bet she was saying "DAMN, one less million."
