    It doesn't matter what you want. Bill will tender him both for his potential roster value as a backup the team has confidence in and as a potential trading chip in the event they become comfortable with Mallett or locate another developmental candidate in the draft. They aren't going to know a heck of a lot more about Mallett than they knew heading into this season until they get to camp and into the pre season. Mallett was a practice player of the week once all season, the first week we faced Sanchez... Hoyer in addition to his backup duties was a practice squad player of the week on multiple occasions and they had him warming when Brady got sacked in the Super Bowl. Even with Tom nursing a shoulder injury for most of the second half of the season Mallett wasn't active once.

    It's a given they will tender Hoyer, just a matter of which tender and the low tender makes no sense because even as a flyer on a potential backup there would be multiple teams interested in him for no compensation.

    Let's go out and spend 2.1 million for the kicker then? Oh wait, we already are.

    I bet you the Texans and Colts think differently.

    Only in the sense of how he plays against a "live" defense.

    The Pats, though, know orders of magnitude more about him than any of us posters here do.

    Thats not very much money for a back up QB.

    Except, of course, that it'd be about as much as the Pats have spent on backup QBs in 2009, 2010, and 2011 combined. :)

    $1.9m for Hoyer is not bad at all. What's that .8% of the projected 2012 cap?

    Closer to 1.8%.

    You are right about that. The NY Jets are going to pay Mark Sanchez $14.253 million in 2012, which is very much money for a bakup QB.

    I like what I see out of Hoyer...While I think Mallett has more of a chance to be Brady's successor, he has proved a worthy backup to Brady.
