Brian Hoyer hasn’t even played a down with the 49ers yet, and there’s already speculation about replacing him next season. With Kirk Cousins’ deadline to sign an extension with the Redskins passing today and no deal being agreed upon, rumors of Cousins coming to San Francisco after this season will only intensify.
Hoyer, who actually played with Cousins at Michigan State, is set to be the 49ers’ starting quarterback in the upcoming 2017 season after signing a two-year deal this offseason. He joined ESPN’s NFL Live on Monday afternoon, and during the show was asked about rumors regarding Cousins and the 49ers.
Understandably, Hoyer was respectful and careful to not say anything inflammatory about his current team, or his former teammate. He said he’s focused only on the year ahead, and that he won’t worry about what’s out of his control. Check out Hoyer’s full comments on ESPN below.
