Jimmy Garoppolo reacts against the Miami Dolphins

Free-agent National Football League quarterback Brian Hoyer is visiting with the New England Patriots on Wednesday morning, and the expectation is that he will sign with the team, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

That was Bill Belichick's explanation today as he talked about his motivation for trading backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco last night and breaking up what he said was maybe the "best quarterback situation" in the NFL.

Hoyer, 32, spent the first three seasons of his National Football League career with the Pats from 2009 to 2011 after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State.

Not only is the return less substantial than what Patriots fans were expecting, it leaves the team without a backup quarterback. None of those players played quite as well as they did with New England.

"I couldn't ask for anything more than he's given", he said. "He had a few opportunities here and he did a good job with them, which is why he's earned the opportunity that he has now".
