It appears as if the Green Bay Packers have selected their backup quarterback for 2015 and that guy will be Scott Tolzien.
Tolzien signed a one-year deal worth $1.35 million to return to the Packers for a third season. Tolzien started his first year with the Packers on the practice squad before being called up in November. He was the team’s No. 3 quarterback last year, even though he clearly outplayed backup Matt Flynn every chance he got.
Flynn, who’s also a free agent, doesn’t appear to be in the Packers plans moving forward.
That will give Scooter a legitimate shot at the No. 2 job.
The Packers will likely bring a third quarterback into camp, but don’t bet on him being anything more than a developmental guy.
