According to Baranczyk and Dougherty, the best-case scenario for Green Bay would be to find a trade partner for either Hundley or Kizer and recoup either a late-round pick or a backup offensive lineman. However, they admit that the odds of the Packers locating a trade partner for either quarterback aren’t great.
If the Packers can’t trade either quarterback, they believe Green Bay should keep Hundley and cut Kizer.
