ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos have re-signed free-agent quarterback Kevin Hogan to a new one-year contact, the team announced Thursday.
“I love the way that the culture is here,” Hogan said Thursday. “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 [Offensive Coordinator] Rich [Scangarello], [Quarterbacks] Coach T.C. [McCartney] and the other coaches, I’m really excited. But mostly it’s the culture. It’s a winning culture, and I think that’s what’s going to happen.”
Hogan initially joined the Broncos in September when the team claimed him off waivers. He did not see game action last season.
The fourth-year player was drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Chiefs before joining the Browns’ practice squad later that year. He started a game and played in eight total contests for Cleveland from 2016-17.
Hogan threw for 517 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions in 2017. He recorded a 61.3 percent completion percentage and 71.9 quarterback rating.
The Stanford product joins Joe Flacco and Garrett Grayson as the quarterbacks currently on the Broncos’ roster.
“[Flacco] actually reached out to me today,” Hogan said. “I thought that was really nice of him. He didn’t have to, [but he’s] a real stand-up guy. He’s a Super Bowl MVP, and anything that I can do to help him, I’m going to do. But most importantly I know he’s going to help me grow as a player. I’m just so excited for that.”
