The Denver Broncos have resigned backup quarterback Kevin Hogan to a new one-year contract, the team confirmed Thursday.
The 26-year-old, who arrived in the Mile High City last September after being claimed off waivers, backed up Case Keenum in 2018 and will back up the Broncos’ new starter Joe Flacco in 2019.
“I love the way that the culture is here,” Hogan told DenverBroncos.com.
“I got to spend a whole year with the guys in the locker room, and I know everyone works hard. It’s a special group of guys. I got to build a relationship with Coach Fangio way back when.
“He actually recruited me to college. I know that he’s going to bring the right stuff here. Just to be able to learn under [
“But mostly it’s the culture. It’s a winning culture, and I think that’s what’s going to happen.”Embed from Getty Images
The Broncos also have Colorado State alum Garrett Grayson on the roster for 2019 but will hope neither backup sees action.
Hogan’s only game time since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft came during the 2016 and 2017 seasons with Cleveland.
He made one start and played in seven other games, throwing for 517 yards, four touchdowns, and seven interceptions.
Two of those interceptions came in his NFL debut when he went in for injured starter Cody Kessler.
He finished that game with stats of 12/24 for 100 yards with two interceptions, as well as seven times for 104 yards and one touchdown, which was a 28-yard run.
Despite bringing Hogan back, the Broncos could still draft a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft.
