The move makes the future of Brett Hundley as the number two quarterback uncertain. Hundley filled in for Aaron Rodgers after he went down a collarbone injury. The Packers went 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters during the NFL scouting combine that, “Brett Hundley wasn’t ready for what he needed to be ready for. That’s something that we have to learn from, and that stings.”
But McCarthy added, “I believe in Brett Hundley. I do fully recognize that he has a lot of football in front of him. He has a big upside."
