Packers Were Close To Trading Backup QB Brett Hundley During Draft

Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports that the Packers made backup QB Brett Hundley available for trade during the draft and nearly completed a deal on Day 2.

However, Demovsky says that it appears as though the Packers will hold on to Hundley for another season before looking to trade him next year.

According to Demovsky, the Packers believe they will be able to get much more than the fifth-round pick they invested him a few years ago.

It makes sense the Packers could gauge trade interest in Hundley, given that Aaron Rodgers still has a number of years ahead of him. Hundley was clearly a future investment pick for Green Bay, so it would make sense for them to get serious about trades after the 2017 season.

Hundley, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.504 million contract that included a $223,632 signing bonus and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2016, Hundley appeared in four games for the Packers and completed 2 of 10 passing attempts for 17 yards and one interception.

We’ll have more regarding a potential Hundley trade as the news is available.
