The Green Bay Packers almost traded backup quarterback Brett Hundley on the second day of the 2017 draft. Brett Hundley does not want to hear about that.
It’s an interesting situation. Hundley wants to be a starter. He’s not going to be one in Green Bay, barring an injury to Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers will have to trade him — most likely during next year’s draft — or he’ll walk as a free agent after the 2018 season. They would likely get a compensatory pick in that scenario, but could parlay Hundley into a maybe a second-rounder if they moved him.
The Packers potentially had a third-rounder on the table during this year’s draft. They obviously think they can improve the pick next year.
That’s a nice return for a fifth-round pick, as Hundley was.
But like I said, he doesn’t want to hear about any of it.
“I don’t know; I don’t get into it,” Hundley said. “Wherever I’m at, I’m going to play. I came here for one reason. I came here to play, and that’s my goal no matter where I’m at.”
It has to be frustrating being a backup and knowing (or thinking) you can start. More so, when you’re in a situation where you have no chance to start.
Be patient, young man. We have a feeling you’ll get your shot next season.
