As expected, quarterback Scott Tolzien is moving on from the Green Bay Packers.
Tolzien signed with the Indianapolis Colts on Friday.
We have agreed to terms with quarterback Scott Tolzien.
Tolzien obviously won’t get the starting shot he wanted in Indianapolis, where he’ll serve as Andrew Luck’s backup.
Luck did miss nine games in 2015. Perhaps Tolzien is hoping that becomes a trend.
The Colts were in dire need of a backup, with Matt Hasselbeck retiring earlier in the week to take a television job.
As for the Green Bay Packers, they’ll turn to 2015 fifth-round pick Brett Hundley to serve as Aaron Rodgers’ backup.
All we’ve heard are raves about Hundley — particularly his work ethic — since he walked in the door. Hundley performed well during his first preseason with the Packers, as well.
He’s obviously going to be given every opportunity to build upon that success in his sophomore campaign.
What is most interesting in all of this is that a backup quarterback is the first Packers free agent to sign with another team. That paints a pretty clear picture of what the rest of the league thinks about this group.
