Sam Spiegelman breaks down the top 5 free agent quarterbacks heading into the 2015 NFL season.

2. Brian Hoyer

The much-maligned Browns quarterback was first thought to be deserving of an extension midway through the year, then was benched in favor of Johnny Manziel. A mediocre start to the season was met only by immense struggles down the stretch, inevitably costing him his job in favor of the rookie.

Overall, Hoyer passed for 3,326 yards, 12 touchdowns with 13 picks in 13 starts in Cleveland this year, finishing with a QBR of 43.08. He proved he doesn’t have that playmaking ability, and at best he’s a high-upside game manager.

That kind of skill-set doesn’t intrigue many NFL contenders, but perhaps he’s a stop-gap kind of player for teams such as Tennessee or New York that might be drafting Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota. He’s also a fallback option for the Browns, who still have a muddled situation at the quarterback position to this day.
