Brian Hoyer open to Cleveland return if he can compete for starting job

His agent Joe Linta even says the Browns have expressed interest in bringing Hoyer back.

“We never got to the numbers part,” Joe Linta, Hoyer’s agent, told the Akron Beacon Journal on Saturday. “They called and said they were interested in bringing him back.”

“I think the only thing that would make him not (want to) come back is if they said Manziel or whoever we take in the draft or whoever we sign in free agency is going to be the starter and you will only be the backup,” Linta said. “I think that would probably drive him away a little bit.

“If Pettine said, ‘Hey, it’s going to be an open competition again between you and Johnny,’ great, let’s go. … (Hoyer) wants to play. The kid wants to have an opportunity to compete and play.”
