Brett Hundley could start somewhere in 2018

The Packers once served as a quarterback farm system. They developed and then traded Matt Hasselbeck, Mark Brunell and Aaron Brooks for draft picks.

For the first time in 17 years, since they sent Brooks to the Saints for a third-rounder, the Packers could groom their backup quarterback to trade. Brett Hundley enters his third season with hopes of becoming a starter in 2018.

“I’ve always said, I went in the fifth [round], I want a first-round pick from someone trading for me,” Hundley said, via Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Everybody wants the house to be traded for them, because that’s showing you what that team values you for.”

Hundley becomes a free agent in 2019, so he and the Packers need Hundley to have a good preseason to generate interest in the 2018 offseason. Hundley threw 65 passes and had a 129.6 passer rating during the preseason of his rookie year, but he played only 20 snaps and threw only 10 passes in the 2016 exhibition season because of an ankle injury. Hundley, a fifth-round pick in 2015, has only four regular-season appearances, completing 2-of-10 passes for 17 yards and an interception.

Quarterback-needy teams will need to see more from Hundley before making a trade and committing to him as a starter.

    He wants someone to trade a first round pick for him? How’s that gonna help the team your going to?? Not a very smart statement

  2. gbpackfan3 says: Jun 20, 2017 7:08 PM

    I could see one of these teams with aging vets like NO or SD sending a 2nd or 3rd for him if he has a nice preseason…or maybe San Fran if they aren’t able to get Cousins

  3. Kapodaco says: Jun 20, 2017 7:08 PM

    Okay, but… based on what? He’s basically a giant question mark. Who would pull the trigger on that?

  4. fartweasel says: Jun 20, 2017 7:14 PM

    The backup QB on every team is a future hall-of-famer, just ask them.

  5. aliveguy24 says: Jun 20, 2017 7:21 PM

    So wait is he getting Blackballed too? Like that other #7

  6. mackcarrington says: Jun 20, 2017 7:32 PM

    Having spent 3 years in Green bay, he’ll adapt nicely to another small, cold weather city in Buffalo.

    So could Brett Favre, considering what I’m seeing on some of these rosters.

  8. codythao35 says: Jun 20, 2017 7:33 PM

    He’s nothing but a 3rd string back up. Or perhaps he could take over for Rodgers and do his triple jump passes.

  9. contra74 says: Jun 20, 2017 7:44 PM

    Because recent Packer backup QBs like Matt Flynn have lit the NFL on fire since they left Green Bay.

    Look up the definition of sarcasm.

    Only for the Browns!

    Lol, if the Packers can get their wasted 5th round pick back they should pull the trigger.

  13. sdchicken says: Jun 20, 2017 8:37 PM

    He was solid in college, just tends to hold the ball too long looking for the big play. If he learns to speed up his reads, he can be a starter

  14. irishgary says: Jun 20, 2017 8:38 PM

    @ispeakthetruthraiders

    If he were to end up a franchise QB it would be worth a first round pick. But your a raiders fan we didn’t expect you to understand

  15. sellingadream says: Jun 20, 2017 8:44 PM

    Nobody will trade even a 7th rounder for a player who never started and won a single NFL game. What is it with these millennials and their inflated self worth?

  16. wafflestomp says: Jun 20, 2017 8:47 PM

    Well, you’d have to think the Barneys would be an option for Hundley, since they inexplicably have no viable QB lined up for the 2018 season.

    It’s the game’s most valuable position and Minnesota’s cupboard is going to be completely bare.
    Spieldope is a mortician, indeed.
    skoLOL!

  17. dragonfly99 says: Jun 20, 2017 9:18 PM

    I would think Minnesota would be the obvious choice considering they don’t have any options once Bradford leaves or gets injured and Spielman’s fascination with Packer players, but not sure Green Bay would trade him to a division rival.

  18. jalopy42 says: Jun 20, 2017 9:26 PM

    If Brittle Bradford is worth a one, and Mitch is worth all he costs, Hundley can talk like that. His best bet would be to soak in Aaron and the system. I’d rather be vice president, and a heartbeat away, than running a dysfunction junction.

    It was disappointing he didn’t get to play much at all last preseason. The year before he and Jeff Janis tore up the preseason. I’m excited to see what he does this year. Always exciting to see the young guys with potential who normally don’t get a chance to play in the regular season.

    Minnesota fans are experts since they have witnessed first hand how successful some of their past QB draft choices have done. LOL!

  21. filthymcnasty3 says: Jun 20, 2017 10:27 PM

    He’s plenty good enough to fleece one team for a 1st and a 4th.

    ===============================
    I know the Vikings can’t resist ex Packers but you are overlooking one key factor, Ted Thompson would never trade a Qb in the same division. Plus, the Viking fans are thrilled to have a 14 TD QB at the helm, that’s their definition of a franchise QB.

    I’m sure Brent Hundley could start somewhere in 2018, but it won’t be in the NFL. Packer fans have been telling us how great he is since he was drafted, in the absence of any kind of evidence to back it up.

  24. vikingjack73 says: Jun 21, 2017 1:44 AM

    MN has no viable option at QB lined up for 2018??
    They can sign Bradford & or Bridgewater anytime they want!

    Which is a hell of a better option than Hundley!
    I just fall over laughing when Packers fans think Hundley is soooo good based on his preseason performances

    How did that work out for Matt Flynn????
    Hmmmmmmmm

    Same could be said of Treadslow…..except you guys wasted a first rounder. Doh!

  26. RegisHawk says: Jun 21, 2017 9:29 AM

    Shame on you promoting another QB when Colin Kaepernick remains unemployed!!

  27. crownofthehelmet says: Jun 21, 2017 11:36 AM

    Hang on to him in preparation for the steep decline of a-rodg.

  28. siuleno says: Jun 21, 2017 12:29 PM

    oh, man. “How did that work out for Matt Flynn????
    Hmmmmmmmm”

    do you remember when Flynn fueled a 17-point run in the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime against the Vikings? hahahahaha Hmmmmmmmmm
