According to ESPN, the Green Bay Packers have traded backup quarterback Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks. Even if you are regularly researching to place NFL bets online, you may not have seen that coming. They will also receive a sixth-round draft pick in 2019 from Seattle.

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.
Although he has been Rodgers’ primary backup throughout training camp and the preseason, it now appears Kizer will go into the regular season as the Packers’ No. 2 quarterback.
He is leaving Green Bay having completed 194 of 326 passes for 1,863 yards, nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions over 15 games. He was entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2018.
