San Antonio Brahmas Sign QB Kevin Hogan In Place Of Garbers

The San Antonio Brahmas suffered a major blow this week, as starting QB Chase Garbers was ruled out for the season. In his place, Kevin Hogan has signed with the team, as the third quarterback on the roster.

This is an interesting change of scenery for Hogan, who has yet to step into the spring football scene until this week.

Kevin has had an extensive football career so far, at age 31. Starting at Stanford, Hogan was a prolific passer in college. He started during his final three years at Stanford, totaling 9,385 passing yards and 75 touchdowns across his collegiate career. Not only that, but Kevin set a school record with 15 rushing scores as well.

This led to plenty of NFL interest for Hogan, who was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs during the 5th round of the 2016 draft. Hogan was dropped by the Chiefs before the regular season, but moved over to Cleveland. He set a Cleveland Browns record that year, rushing for a 28 yard touchdown – the longest of any Browns quarterback.

After a couple of years in Cleveland, Kevin was traded to the Washington Redskins in 2018. Washington ended up letting him go, and Hogan got scooped up by the Denver Broncos. Since then, he’s bounced around between a few NFL teams (Titans, Broncos, Bengals). Most recently, he was on the Titans practice squad but was released on January 10th, 2023.

Now, Hogan will look to spring football to continue his professional career, signing with the San Antonio Brahmas.

Final Thoughts

For now, Quinten Dormady – who was backing up Chase Garbers – will be the starting quarterback for the Brahmas. Dormady was with the Orlando Guardians in the XFL last year, and had been selected in the UFL Super Draft by San Antonio.

This Brahmas organization is clearly very high on what Quinten can do. He just barely lost the battle in Training Camp to Garbers. Offensive Coordinator A.J. Smith said that it was neck and neck, and that he’s looking forward to seeing what this offense can continue to do with Dormady at the helm.

That said, Kevin Hogan brings so much professional experience to the table, that it’s likely we could see him suit up at some point, especially if things aren’t going smoothly with Quinten. General Manager Marc Lillibridge continues to build a roster of players with NFL backgrounds, and Hogan is no exception.

The Brahmas also roster Tom Flacco, who has yet to be on the active roster this UFL season.
