The Packers, who kept two backup quarterbacks on their 53-player roster, reportedly took a look at three other quarterbacks on Sunday.
According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Packers put Pat Devlin, Jeff Mathews and Jon Jennings through workouts on Sunday.
The 26-year-old Devlin has the most NFL experience of the trio. He spent the previous three seasons with the Dolphins. Miami released Devlin (6-3, 220) with an injury settlement on August 19. Devlin played collegiately at Delaware.
A Cornell product, Mathews spent time with the Falcons this summer before being waived August 24. He signed as undrafted free agent with Atlanta in May. Mathews (6-4, 229) agreed to join the Colts’ practice squad on Sunday.
Jennings (6-2, 205) is a rookie from Saginaw Valley State. He was collegiate teammates with Packers wide receiver Jeff Janis.
It’s possible the Packers were working out the three quarterbacks with an eye on being prepared in case a passer needed to be added at a moment’s notice. Such workouts are not uncommon.
