The Patriots take advantage of an AFC East rival’s ‘lowball’ offer, according to reports.
The New England Patriots have dominated the New York Jets both on the field (two landslide victories) and in the offseason, signing a free agent that their rivals might use on their squad.
Tony Pauline of the Pro Football Network chronicled a narrative about how Hoyer ended up with the Patriots rather than the Jets. “It’s outrageous the Jets had no veteran quarterback on the roster through camp and the season to assist train Zach Wilson,” one long-time league insider told Pauline. During the offseason, the Jets wanted to sign Brian Hoyer for this reason, but [Joe] Douglas made him a lowball offer. Hoyer turned down the offer and instead accepted a lucrative deal with the Patriots, where he is tutoring rookie quarterback Mac Jones. Jones scored 54 points against the Jets on Sunday, defeating them for the first time in his career. Nokia News – Quick Recap
