Joe Thomas: Brian Hoyer is a lot like Tom Brady

Browns left tackle Joe Thomas gave Brian Hoyer quite the compliment on Monday.

“He’s a lot like Tom Brady,” Thomas said, per Cleveland.com. “When you look at the way he competes and the way he demands the most out of everybody around him, it’s no coincidence that those guys played together.  (Hoyer) has a lot of those same mental attributes and that’s a great thing for a quarterback to have.

“He’s the ultimate competitor, and no matter if we drafted a quarterback No. 1 overall, I knew that in his mind he expects to win the job because that’s the type of competitor he is and the type of quarterback.”

Hoyer did play with Tom Brady in New England for a few years,  so I would hope that he picked up a few things from the future Hall of Famer.
