The Facts: Hoyer said on PFT Live that his priority in free agency was finding a team where he believes he'll earn the starting job, and after talking to HC Kyle Shanahan he believes the 49ers are that team. "I'm going to have a really good opportunity to go in and be the starting quarterback, and that's all I'm looking for at this point in my career," Hoyer said.
Diehards Line:Hoyer said Shanahan hasn’t promised him anything, but Hoyer believes that having played for Shanahan before, he’s going to have a leg up on any other quarterback the 49ers might bring to camp. ... Hoyer has started 27 games in the last three seasons, so it’s not like he’s unaccustomed to starting. But for most of his career he’s become the starter only because another quarterback ahead of him on the depth chart either got hurt or played poorly. In San Francisco, he thinks he can take the reins from the first day, and lead the 49ers going forward.
