Brian Hoyer's contract with the Arizona Cardinals expires in March, but the 27-year-old is more concerned about his start against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday than he is about his future with the organization.
Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt named Hoyer the starter on Wednesday, making him the team's fourth starting quarterback this season. It is believed that Hoyer will be a restricted free agent following this season, which would mean that the organization might tender him an offer and keep him a Cardinal for next season. And despite that, job security isn't at the front of Hoyer's mind right now.
"I'm not really worried about that right now," Hoyer said. "I'm worried about what play will be called on third-and 2-to-5. We're not going to the playoffs and this is the last game and there will be plenty of time to worry about that after Sunday."
Hoyer saw limited action in Arizona's 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Dec. 23, completing 11-of-19 passes for 105 yards, with one interception and one fumble. He has also been with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers this year, but did not see game action for either team.
