Hundley signed a one-year contract with the Cardinals on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Hundley operated as the team's backup behind Kyler Murray in 2019, seeing most of his action Week 16 when Murray exited with a hamstring injury. Overall, the 26-year-old completed five of 11 passes for 49 yards and rushed seven times for 41 yards in three appearances. Hundley will likely be the No. 2 QB again for the 2020 campaign.
Hundley completed five of 11 passes for 49 yards and rushed seven times for 41 yards in three appearances during the 2019 season.
Hundley received most of his work Week 16 when Kyler Murray exited with a hamstring injury, but otherwise, the latter led the Cardinals offense for the vast majority of his rookie campaign. An upcoming unrestricted free agent, Hundley likely is poised for a backup role, at best, wherever he lands this offseason.
Brett Hundley is preparing for the possibility of replacing Kyler Murray (hamstring) as the Cardinals' starting quarterback Sunday against the Rams, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
A limited practice participant throughout the week, Murray is listed as questionable and considered to be a game-day decision. The Cardinals seem to be preparing for the rookie to miss the season finale, as Hundley received most of the practice reps this week, while another signal-caller in Drew Anderson promoted from the practice squad. A road matchup with the Rams doesn't look great on paper for Hundley, but there's been some talk of Los Angeles coach Sean McVay resting key players or at least limiting their snaps.
Hundley entered Sunday's 27-13 win over the Seahawks midway through the third quarter after Kyler Murray left with a strained hamstring, and he finished the afternoon by completing four of nine passes for 49 yards and adding 35 rushing yards on six carries.
The Cards' backup QB wasn't particularly effective, but with Kenyan Drake having another big day on the ground, the team didn't need much offense from its passing game. Given that Arizona is long out of playoff contention, it wouldn't be a surprise if Murray gets shut down Week 17 and Hundley -- who had seen only three snaps all year coming into Sunday -- gets the start against the Rams.
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 went 8-for-14 passing for 78 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions during Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.
Hundley guided the de facto first-team offense for the Packers with Aaron Rodgers sitting out, suggesting that he's still considered the team's top backup option despite the offseason addition of Deshone Kizer. Despite not throwing for a touchdown, Hundley still outplayed Kizer on the night, potentially cementing himself as the top backup with one week remaining in the preseason. Either way, it would be surprising if the Packers didn't hold on to three quarterbacks through roster cuts.
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.
Hundley is expected to start Thursday's preseason contest versus the Titans, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports.
Just as he did nine times for an absent Aaron Rodgers last season, Hundley will be under center from the outset Thursday. During those outings, Hundley managed to complete 61.4 percent of his passes for 186.6 yards per game and eight touchdowns versus nine interceptions. A lack of experience showed with inconsistency from week to week. While he directed the Packers to a trio of victories and nearly a fourth against the Steelers in Week 12, he was also shut out by the Ravens and Vikings. In the offseason, the Packers traded for 2017 second-round selection DeShone Kizer, but the coaching staff's familiarity with Hundley likely gives him the upper hand in the battle for the No. 2 job.
Hundley appears to be on the roster bubble for the Packers heading into training camp, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Hundley underwhelmed in his nine starts last season while Aaron Rodgers missed time with a broken collarbone, a disappointing development given the 2015 fifth-round pick had spent over two seasons in the Green Bay system learning under the two-time MVP. The Packers seemingly acknowledged their disappointment in Hundley this offseason by trading cornerback Damarious Randall to the Browns in exchange for DeShone Kizer, who by most accounts is the favorite to secure the No. 2 gig in advance of Week 1. Hundley's best chance at sticking around seems to be as a third signal-caller, though it seems rather unlikely that the Packers would retain more than two players at the position.
Hundley completed 14 of 24 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 35-11 loss to Detroit. He also lost a fumble and converted a two-point conversion during the contest.
By the time Hundley hooked up with Randall Cobb for a 17-yard score early in the fourth quarter, the game was already effectively out of reach. Hundley seemed to revert back to his early-season struggles in the season's final two weeks. The UCLA product had a touchdown:interception ratio of six:one in Weeks 12 to 14, sat behind Aaron Rodgers in Week 15, and then preceded to throw four picks and just one touchdown against Minnesota and Detroit to end the season. He figures to return to his spot behind a healthy Rodgers in 2018.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that Hundley would remain the team's starting quarterback Week 17 against the Lions, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Not sure why you'd want to pull the quarterback," McCarthy said. "There's a lot more going on than just the quarterback."
Though the Packers were shut out for the second time in Hundley's eight starts in Saturday's 16-0 loss to the Vikings, McCarthy noted that a slew of dropped passes from the team's receiving corps contributed to the signal caller's demise. As a result, the Packers won't turn the offense over to backup Joe Callahan, but it will be difficult nonetheless to bank on Hundley turning in a solid performance in the season finale, especially with his top two wideouts -- Davante Adams (concussion) and Jordy Nelson (shoulder) -- at risk of missing the contest. Hundley has had a few positive moments while filling in for the injured Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), but his 5.7 yards per attempt and 8:10 TD:INT ratio render him a lower-tier fantasy option.
Hundley completed 17 of 40 passes for 130 yards and two interceptions during Saturday's 16-0 loss to the Vikings.
Hundley's woes at home continued, with the defeat dropping him to 1-4 in the confines of Lambeau Field. More ignominious than the record, though, is his lack of a touchdown in those appearances. Hurting his cause from the outset was the lack of his favorite receiver, Davante Adams, who is embedded in the concussion protocol for the second time this season. To make matters worse, the offense lost Jordy Nelson (shoulder) as the clock wound down to halftime, which was soon followed by an interception in the red zone from Hundley. Among the Packers' 10 other possessions, one was a Hundley pick late in the fourth quarter, six ended in punts and the other three were turnovers on downs. He'll look to bounce back in the season finale next Sunday at Detroit, against whom he racked up 245 passing yards and 22 yards and a TD on the ground Week 9.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Tuesday that Hundley will start the Packers' final two regular-season contests. "Very important for Brett Hundley. He's excited. He gets another opportunity against two division opponents [the Vikings in Week 16 and Lions in Week 17]."
After guiding the Packers to a 3-4 record in his seven starts in place of an injured Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), Hundley returned to the backup role in the Week 15 loss to the Panthers after Rodgers was activated from IR ahead of the contest. With Rodgers experiencing some soreness coming out of the game and the Packers officially eliminated from the postseason at the conclusion of the Week 15 slate, McCarthy and the coaching staff decided it was best to shutter the star signal caller for the rest of the season, affording Hundley another chance to direct the offense. Hundley's lack of down-field accuracy and occasional turnover problems will probably result in Green Bay deploying conservative, run-heavy game plans over the next two weeks, so he likely won't make for a dependable lineup option during the fantasy playoffs outside of two-quarterback formats.
Hundley is expected to start the Packers' final two games of the regular season after Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Though team doctors cleared Rodgers to come off IR and return from a seven-game absence to start in Sunday's eventual 31-24 loss to the Panthers, it's believed that the surgically repaired collarbone in his throwing shoulder hadn't completely healed. With the Packers' slim postseason hopes officially ending with the Falcons' win over the Buccaneers on Monday, the team decided to shut Rodgers down to avoid a setback with the collarbone heading into the 2018 campaign. Hundley, who went 3-4 as a starter and has thrown eight touchdowns against eight interceptions for the season, amounts to a significant downgrade from the two-time MVP and likely won't warrant a pickup outside of fantasy leagues that start two quarterbacks. It doesn't help Hundley's case that he'll draw a pair of tough matchups down the stretch, with the NFC North champion Vikings due up Sunday, followed by a Lions squad in Week 17 that could be competing for a playoff spot.
Hundley is expected to resume backup duties Sunday against the Panthers with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) confirming Tuesday that he's received medical clearance to play in the contest, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
Rodgers, who has been practicing since Dec. 2 after recovering from surgery to repair the collarbone on his throwing shoulder, is expected to be formally activated from injured reserve before the end of the week and take back the starting reins for the final three games of the regular season. During the two-time MVP's seven-game absence, Hundley led the Packers to a 3-4 record to keep the team's playoff hopes alive, but he didn't do much to instill confidence that he has a long-term future as a starter in the NFL. Hundley has tossed eight touchdowns against eight interceptions while completing 63.8 percent of his passes for a lowly 6.1 yards per attempt across nine appearances this season. On a more positive note, Hundley has excelled at extending drives with his legs, accruing 207 yards and two scores on 28 carries.
Hundley completed 35 of 46 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns, adding seven carries for 31 yards, in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.
Hundley found a wide-open Jamaal Williams for a 30-yard score on the opening drive, but the Packers were shut down for the rest of the first half. The Green Bay offense came back strong after halftime, eventually tying the game in the closing seconds on a one-yard Davante Adams touchdown that was set up by a 65-yard punt return. DeShone Kizer then threw a gift of an interception early in the extra period, and Adams then took a screen pass 25 yards into the end zone to finish the game. It's unclear if Hundley will get another start, as Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is eligible to return from injured reserve for a Week 15 game in Carolina, pending clearance from doctors to play.
Hundley completed 13 of 22 passes for 84 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 26-20 overtime win against the Buccaneers. He also rushed seven times for 66 yards.
The mobile signal caller couldn't do much through the air after equaling a career high with 245 yards and firing three touchdowns versus the Steelers last Sunday night. However, Hundley made up for it with a career-high rushing total against the Buccaneers, using his legs to extend drives on multiple occasions. His 3.8 YPA is undeniably cause for concern, but Hundley may only make one more start anyhow if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) continues trending toward a return. Hundley will look to improve his passing numbers versus the vulnerable Browns' secondary in Week 14.
