A former Packers quarterback gets another chance
The Green Bay Packers are good at finding quarterback talent. Their scouting department has brought so many talented guys in that they must let some go to other teams. Recently the San Francisco 49ers signed former Packers quarterback Kurt Benkert to their practice squad.
This week, former Packers’ member Brett Hundley got a chance with a new team. According to the NFL’s transaction wire from Nov. 2, the New Orleans Saints signed Hundley to their practice squad. The Saints had a need at the position after they cut quarterback Jake Luton from the practice squad.
Where Hundley has been recently
The Green Bay Packers drafted Hundley in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. He played in 15 games for the Packers. After Aaron Rodgers was injured, Hundley started in nine games for the Packers during the 2017 season. He threw nine touchdowns to 13 interceptions with the Packers during his time in Green Bay. The former Packers quarterback was traded to Seattle in 2018 for a sixth-round draft pick.
The Arizona Cardinals signed Hundley to a one-year contract in 2019. He played in three games for the Cardinals. That was the last year he played in the regular season. Hundley spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens before signing with the Saints Wednesday. We will see if he can make it back onto the field with the Saints.
