Why? He's old, slow, and was just a red zone threat last year.

I'm glad Plaxico got another shot.
Wonder if Hoyer can beat Batch out?

Probably not. I doubt Hoyer really knows Haley's offense. Hoyer might be the better player but if he doesnt know the offense that doesnt matter.

Haley uses a lot of the same concepts that Hoyer knew from his time in New England. The terminology is probably different, but I think he can be a serviceable backup.

I'm sure he can too. I dont think he will beat out Batch, before Big Ben gets healthy though.

Also, any timetable for Big Ben's return?
