Default Re: Brian Hoyer/Ryan Mallet ?

Quote:
Consider what the Patriots have spent, base-salary-wise, at the backup quarterback spot over the past six years:

2009: $310,000 (Brian Hoyer)
2010: $395,000 (Hoyer)
2011: $480,000 + $375,000 (Hoyer/Ryan Mallett)
2012: $508,992 (Mallett)
2013: $642,984 (Mallett)
2014: $776,976 (Mallett)

The team ultimately moved away from Hoyer in 2012 when he had a restricted free-agent tender of $1.9 million.

As for Mallett, he enters the final year of his contract in 2014, and if he continues his development, he could position himself for a deal that aligns with the current marketplace for top backup quarterbacks, if not more. With Tom Brady signed through 2017 and still playing at a high level, one could easily envision Mallett elsewhere in 2015.

That is why, in the ever-evolving team-building process, it wouldn't be surprising if the Patriots select a quarterback in the middle to late rounds of the 2014 draft.

Continues his development is an interesting term because outside of insiders (like BOB), relative few are actually privy to what Mallet's progress is since he's got such limited real-game experience/tape as I understand it. Is now the time for BOB to "strike while the iron is hot" ?
