INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are signing former New England Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer, the team announced Monday.

According to an ESPN report, the Colts offer is a three-year, $12 million deal that includes $9 million guaranteed.

Former starting quarterback Andrew Luck retired abruptly this offseason leading to the ascension of Jacoby Brissett, a former Patriots backup, as the Colts' starting quarterback.

Hoyer has played in 65 career games, including 37 starts, for the Patriots (2009-11, 2017-18), San Francisco 49ers (2017), Chicago Bears (2016), Houston Texans (2015), Cleveland Browns (2013-14), Arizona Cardinals (2012) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2012).
