The Cleveland Browns have reached out to quarterback Brian Hoyer about a contract for the upcoming season reports ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Try figuring that one out.

Hoyer won the Browns quarterback job last season during the preseason and then went onto lead the Browns to a 7-4 record in Kyle Shanahan’s offense before the wheels fell off.

There was a disconnect between the front office and the Browns coaching staff last season with first round pick Johnny Manziel being the point of contention. Pressed into the lineup, Manziel struggled. Even with Manziel’s struggles it is hard to believe the Browns and even Hoyer himself would want to go though this again but stranger things have happened.

The Browns surely will offer Hoyer a contract to pay him as a backup to give themselves some form of insurance going into the season. Whether or not Hoyer accepts is up for debate, he could end up going to the highest bidder. More than a few would be interested on the market.
