Brett Hundley, QB

Cap hit in 2018: $760,000 ($56,000 in dead cap)

When the Packers traded away their best cornerback from the 2017 season to acquire DeShone Kizer from the Cleveland Browns, it was apparent that they were unhappy with their current backup quarterback situation, as was every Packer fan on the planet.

Before the 2017 season, there was talk of Hundley being decently valuable trade bait, but after filling in for the injured Aaron Rodgers in 2017, his trade value plummeted. Brett Hundley did not look ready to handle NFL defenses and did not look capable of processing his reads quickly and effectively enough to find consistent success.

Obviously, it would be better to be able to get something, anything, in return for Hundley at this point, and at this point it would most likely be a sixth or seventh-round pick. After Hundley’s showing last season, that may still be too much for a team to want to give up for a project quarterback.

It seems unlikely that the Packers will be keeping three quarterbacks on their roster, mostly because depth among other position groups is more important to this team. Hopefully, the Packers are able to find a trade partner, but if not, Hundley may just end up getting cut before the 2018 season.
