The Green Bay Packers, without their star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, reportedly tried to sign new free agent quarterback Brian Hoyer before he ultimately returned to play for the New England Patriots. 

The Patriots announced Wednesday that Hoyer had signed a deal with the team but did not disclose terms. League sources told ESPN that the veteran quarterback agreed to a three-year deal.

Hoyer returns to the team where his NFL career began as an undrafted player out of Michigan State in 2009. He served as Tom Brady's backup through the 2011 season before moving on to stops with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2012), Arizona Cardinals (2012), Cleveland Browns (2013-14), Houston Texans (2015), Chicago Bears (2016) and 49ers (2017).

Hoyer was released by the 49ers on Tuesday after they acquired quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots in exchange for a 2018 second-round draft choice.
