The Las Vegas Raiders found their replacement for quarterback Derek Carr earlier this offseason when they signed free agent Jimmy Garoppolo. The former San Francisco 49er agreed to a three-year deal worth $67.5 million last month.
Now, the franchise has found its replacement for backup Jarrett Stidham.
The Raiders have agreed to a two-year contract with veteran signal-caller Brian Hoyer, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Hoyer has spent eight seasons playing for the New England Patriots, including four when McDaniels was the team’s offensive coordinator.

Hoyer has started 40 games across his 14-year NFL career. He’s thrown a total of 53 touchdowns and 35 interceptions.
The 37-year-old should primarily provide experience with McDaniels’ system and a veteran presence to help Garoppolo — and possibly a rookie signal-caller, as well. There’s been some talk that the Raiders could look to draft their quarterback of the future with their No. 7 overall selection in the upcoming NFL Draft.
But even if the Raiders don’t find a quarterback they like in the draft, they should have enough depth behind center as they try to climb back into the playoffs in 2023.
