Brian Hoyer for Andre Johnson? Really?
The internet was on fire for a few hours Wednesday with the possibility that a major blockbuster trade was going down. Rumor had it that the Cleveland Browns were going to trade Brian Hoyer to the Houston Texans for Andre Johnson.
The whole mess started when the Browns signed Rex Grossman. A capable back-up that is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan already could conceivably make whomever loses the competiton for the starting job tradable.
From that theory and Johnson insisting on being traded during the off-season the rumors grew until people were announcing the trade had gone through and it was breaking news.
For anyone who might be interested: Texans won't be trading for Brian Hoyer. I've seen that one making the rounds.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) August 13, 2014
