Hoyer has one year left on the two-year contract he signed in 2013, and is set to make $1 million this season. Browns head coach Mike Pettine has said that heading into training camp, Hoyer will be the starting quarterback over rookie Johnny Manziel. The Browns training camp begins on July 26.
Hoyer started three games for Cleveland in 2013, throwing five touchdowns and three interceptions while completing 59.4 percent of his passes, before suffering a season-ending ACL tear in October.
