Former Denver Broncos quarterback Kevin Hogan was lifted by the Houston Texans via NFL transaction wire.

Hogan was released from waivers by the Broncos on September 2, 2018. He spent the season on the Broncos’ roster, but he didn’t see the field.

In the offseason, the Broncos re-signed him. Hogan played extensively for the Broncos in the preseason, but he didn’t play his best football. Against the San Francisco 49ers, he completed five of 15 passes for 40 yards and one interception.

As a result, Hogan didn’t make the original 53-man roster, and he was waived. In November 2020, the Cincinnati Bengals signed Hogan to their practice team.

In 2021, he joined the Tennessee Titans practice team. Hogan played one game for the Titans and recorded seven offensive snaps.

The Texans signed Hogan in May. After his release, they now have three quarterbacks on their active roster: Davis Mills, Kyle Allen, and Jeff Driskel.

In college, Hogan played at Stanford. As a senior, he threw for 2,867 yards, 27 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 14 games.

Many draft experts predicted him as a backup in the NFL. In their scouting report, Bleacher Report compared him to veteran Brain Hoyer.

“Hogan’s mechanics aren’t anything special and won’t be reviewed as positive, but he has an uncanny ability to get the job done despite an awkward throwing motion,” they wrote. “Stanford’s 36 wins during his run speak to that ability. Whether you like quarterback wins as a statistic or not, Hogan is a winner. He’s a fiery competitor that coaches and teammates love.”

Meanwhile, NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein ranked him a “Priority Undrafted Free Agent.”

“Hogan has the size, mobility and quarterback demeanor that could interest a team on day three of the draft,” Zierlein wrote. “He doesn’t have the arm that many teams are looking for and his medium and deep accuracy still needs improvement. Hogan will need time and coaching to try and improve his mechanics and footwork if he wants any chance of becoming an NFL backup.

Hogan was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. However, he did not make the team’s 53-man roster.

Subsequently, the Cleveland Browns signed him to their practice team.

Hogan finally got the opportunity to play. He made his first appearance on October 23, 2016 against the Bengals. In that game, he threw for 100 yards and two interceptions, but he also rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown. He then made three brief appearances in 2016.

In 2017, Hogan received significant playing time. In four games, he threw for 517 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions. He also rushed for 71 yards.

In 2018 he was traded to the Washington Commanders. The commanders cut him and he was claimed by the Broncos.
