Hundley is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Cardinals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hundley didn't see the field for a single snap while backing up Russell Wilson in 2018. He'll figure to compete for a backup role behind starting quarterback Josh Rosen while in Arizona.
Hundley didn't record an offensive snap in 2018. The Seahawks sent a sixth-round pick to Green Bay in exchange for Hundley in August but he wasn't needed, as Russell Wilson played every game for the seventh straight season. Hundley will become an unrestricted free agent in March and projects as a serviceable backup quarterback wherever he lands.
The Packers agreed to trade Hundley to the Seahawks on Wednesday in exchange for a 2019 draft pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The trade leaves DeShone Kizer as the unquestioned No. 2 quarterback in Green Bay, while the Seahawks now have a cloudy backup situation involving Hundley, Austin Davis and Alex McGough. A 2015 fifth-round pick, Hundley finally received extended playing time last season while Aaron Rodgers was sidelined by injury and failed to take advantage of the opportunity. He averaged 7.5 yards across 36 rush attempts, but his impact on the ground was negated by a mark of 5.8 yards per pass attempt and a 9:12 TD:INT. For what it's worth, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle expects Hundley to step in ahead of Davis and McGough on the depth chart, thus serving as the top understudy to Russell Wilson.
Hundley completed six of nine passes for 77 yards and had two carries for 12 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers. Hundley was the first quarterback to see action after Aaron Rodgers led the first drive, and he was effective while playing three series, leading the Packers to points on each occasion. Hundley and fellow reserve quarterback DeShone Kizer have both played well during the preseason and continue to compete for the backup spot behind Rodgers.
Hundley started Thursday's preseason win over the Titans and completed nine of 14 passes for 108 yards. He tossed a touchdown and also threw an interception in the contest. With Aaron Rodgers being held out, Hundley got the nod over fellow quarterback DeShone Kizer, and it was a successful night outside of the interception and a fumble, which the Packers recovered. Hundley made several quality throws, including a perfect 48-yard bomb to Davante Adams to set up the Packers' first score of the night. Kizer also played well, and the two remain essentially neck-and-neck to open the season in the backup spot, with Hundley holding the slight edge given his experience in the Packers' system.
