    Copeland any good?

    Had 5 sacks in 2018. Might be good depth.

    Hoyer has come back more often than Michael Myers.
    He is the new Ross Ventrone

    I would guess they draft someone but not high. My thought is that they probably knew days ago that Hoyer would be released so this move has been planned for a bit. This signals to me that Stidham is the plan for 2020 with Hoyer there for guidance and to keep the ship afloat if needed. Still, taking a shot at a developmental QB makes sense if they have the roster room.

    I’d prefer Kessler as the backup at this point.

    James Morgan?
    Just saw the article on here that we've shown interest hes a 5th round QB at best.
    Anyone really have knowledge of him on this board to share thoughts?

    Said the same in the general FA thread - like the move. He's not "exciting" necessarily but he's an established vet and he can be a decent 3rd LB behind Hightower and Bentley IMO. Curious if they gave him a multi-year deal.

    Love it.

    Hoyer is the ideal backup QB in this situation. He has full understanding of the offense, is invaluable for the scout team during the season and -- above all -- is the perfect mentor for Stidham during camp and maybe even more so through the season.

    He's especially in a season that will be impacted to some extent (possibly significantly) by the current COVID19 situation. Very smart move by the team if they are intending to go with Stidham - Hoyer will be an invaluable resource for the kid.

    Copeland had 5 sacks & 25 hurries in 2018 when the Jets ran a 3-4 defense. Good scheme fit here.

    I would think so, and draftee either takes the backup role (hoyer released)or we keep 3/attempt to place draftee (if late rounder) to practice squad

    Get ready for the most boring offense since 1993. Ugh, zero quality talent on this offense. Yuck! Let’s hope my prediction of 5-11 turns into 3-13 so we can land Trevor Lawrence and actually become a good offense again.

    5 years of awful drafting on offense led us to this point. No more Brady to mask the weaknesses
