Brian Hoyer vs. Ryan Mallett: Battle of Brady Backups commences

BEREA, Ohio — Poise vs. promise.

Manager vs. maverick.

Brady vs. Brady.

Sunday in Cleveland will be the Battle of the Brady Backups as Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer and Houston Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett face off.

Both came from different paths. Hoyer was undrafted and Mallett was a third-round pick. Both are in very different spots, with Hoyer going 8-3 as a Cleveland starter and Mallett readying for his debut.

But the common thread is New England, where both played for three years, overlapping in 2011.
