New England Patriots

BOSTON (CBS) – Restricted free-agent quarterback Brian Hoyer has received a second-round tender from the New England Patriots, reports ESPNBoston’s Mike Reiss.

The $1.92 million tender means that another team can sign Hoyer to an offer sheet, and if the Patriots don’t match the offer, they would receive a second-round pick as compensation.

Hoyer has served as backup to Tom Brady since entering the NFL as an unsigned free agent out of MIchigan State in 2009. In 13 games, mostly making appearances in the fourth quarter or late in games, Hoyer is 27-for-43 for 286 yards with a touchdown and interception.

The 25-year-old Hoyer is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2012 NFL season.
