Brian Hoyer is back with the Patriots, but New England isn’t his only option.

Rapoport’s report gives the lie to Packers coach Mike McCarthy’s claim that the team was fully committed to Brett Hundley as the starter and Joe Callahan as the backup and didn’t need to bring in a veteran after Aaron Rodgers was hurt.
