Brett Hundley expected to be the Packers second string quarterback in 2016

A report from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Friday says Brett Hundley, 22, who is in second year in the National Football League is expected to become the second string quarterback of the Green Bay Packers in the 2016 football season behind Aaron Rodgers who is the current starting quarterback of the football team since 2008.

Scott Tolzien who is the current second string quarterback of the Packers is currently an unrestricted free agent. It is not likely that Tolzien will return to serve as the backup quarterback behind Rodgers during the 2016 football season.

Hundley was a fifth round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers during the 2015 National Football League Draft out of the University of California Los Angeles where was a quarterback for the Bruins football program from 2012-2015.

Because Hundley was the third string quarterback of the Packers during the 2015 football season, he did not play in any regular season games for the team during the regular season or the playoffs.

It is possible that the Packers will trade Hundley to another football team could be traded to another football team in the National Football League for a higher draft choice during the 2016 National Football League Draft.

It is possible that the Packers could be in the market to hire another quarterback to their roster via the trade route or free agency to compete with Hundley to serve as the backup quarterback behind Rodgers during the training camp sessions if Tolzien decides to sign with another football team in the National Football League before the start of the 2016 football season besides the Green Bay Packers.

Last year the Packers kept three QBs - Rogers, Tolzien, and Hundley - on their roster. Because they did this, they had one fewer player for other positions like ends or linebackers. The Packers would be best served to have Hundley as their number two and let Tolzien walk in free agency.

I would go with Hundley since he is younger than Tolzien and he has the potential to be the next great Packers quarterback to succeed Rogers since he reminds of Russell Wilson.
