Packers trading QB Brett Hundley to Seahawks for draft pick

The Seattle Seahawks will acquire backup quarterback Brett Hundley from the Green Bay Packers, Adam Schefter and Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com report.

Hundley started nine games for the Packers last season after Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone.

Green Bay traded with Cleveland for quarterback Deshon Kizer this offseason. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2018. It calls for a base salary of $705,000 this season.

Who is Green Bay's backup?

In search of better competition behind Rodgers, new GM Brian Gutekunst sent cornerback Damarious Randall to Cleveland for Kizer, a second-round pick in 2017 who made 15 starts for the Cleveland Browns last season.

Hundley, a fifth-round pick of the Packers in 2015, made nine starts in place of Rodgers last season but struggled with inconsistency and decision-making. That still left Seattle in a shaky spot not wanting to use a rookie should something happen to Wilson and why the trade for Hundley makes sense.

JetBlue was a latecomer to checked bag fees, which became the norm in the airline industry in 2008. Those with bags over the limit (s) will be charged $150, a $50 increase from the previous fee.

Hundley has played well this preseason.

With one move, both the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks have settled their backup quarterback situations. Hundley completed 61 percent of his passes at 5.8 yards per attempt, while throwing nine touchdowns against 12 interceptions and compiling a 3-6 record as a starter. Keeping Russell Wilson healthy and on the field has been absolutely vital to any chance of winning.

But Davis has been inconsistent this preseason and rookie seventh-round draft pick Alex McGough has shown enough promise to be a development option as a backup for the future. That pass alone could have cinched Schneider trading for Hundley.

Now, apparently, it will be Hundley instead of Davis as Wilson's backup who has at least started National Football League games in previous years.
