The Las Vegas Raiders signed their starting quarterback of the future last month when they brought in former Super Bowl quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, but now it looks like they’re bringing in another veteran quarterback to add a little bit of depth behind him.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Las Vegas Raiders announced that they have signed former New England Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer to a two-year deal.

Hoyer, who is now 37 years old, has appeared in 76 games and made 40 starts over the course of his long NFL career. Throughout that time, he’s compiled 16-24 record as a starter. Hoyer made one start for the Patriots last year during which he completed 5-of-6 pass attempts for 37 yards before ultimately leaving the game with an injury.

By signing with Vegas, Hoyer re-unites with his former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who is now the head coach of the Raiders. He will also be joining a number of other former Patriots players including Graoppolo.

While Hoyer may not be the team’s starting quarterback, his addition to the roster still generated quite a bit of buzz around the NFL world.

The Raiders will become the ninth NFL team for Hoyer throughout his lengthy pro football career.
