Texans release QB Brian Hoyer

The Texans have released quarterback Brian Hoyer.

In his one year with the Texans, Hoyer was the starter for most of the season, starting nine of his 11 games played. In those 11 games, Hoyer threw for 2,606 yards, 19 touchdowns, with seven interceptions. Hoyer helped lead the Texans to the postseason, but in the team's playoff loss to the Chiefs, he was intercepted four times.

"It's part of the business," Hoyer told FOX 26 on Sunday. "To be honest, I've just got to worry about my family and moving on to the next part."

Houston has made moves at the quarterback position during the offseason. In March, the Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a four-year, $72 million deal. They also re-signed Brandon Weeden earlier this month.
