Brian Hoyer Excited to Be in O’Brien’s Offense


This offseason has been as smooth as a transition can be for quarterback Brian Hoyer. Despite being three years removed Bill O’Brien’s offense, Hoyer feels like he’s been able to pick up where he left off in 2011.

“It’s not new – for me, it’s kind of just getting back on the bike,” Hoyer said Monday. “You learn to ride a bike and whether you don’t ride it for a year or two, you can pick it up pretty quickly. There’s some adjustments, especially with (George) Godsey being the offensive coordinator. It’s been a great three weeks so far of getting re-acclimated and learning the nuances that he’s kind of put his own spin on.”

With organized team activities (OTAs) beginning later this month, Hoyer will be sharing first-team practice reps with Ryan Mallett. Both quarterbacks have a familiarity with O’Brien’s offense, but there will still be a learning curve for Hoyer. He’s been working with receivers to build a chemistry and learn their route-running styles.
